Google has redesigned Blogger. The new version offers a number of interface enhancements and new functions including author profiles and posting via email.

Blogger is a free Web-based service offering publishing tools for creating, collecting and sharing opinions and experiences on the Web.

Another new feature is a comments function that lets Bloggers invite readers to respond to their entries.

Program manager Evan Williams said: "Blogger is committed to bringing more voices and points of view to the Web. These enhancements make Web publishing as easy as possible, delivering the power of blogging into the hands of more people worldwide."
