5 New Ways to View Blogger Blogs

The folks at Blogger just came out with an update to allow site visitors to be able to view blogger blogs in interesting new ways.

It uses the blog's RSS feed, so it's easy to implement, but from a blogger's perspective you loose are your custom content from your header, sidebars and footer.

It's interesting.

Some bloggers are prepared for this by placing additional content, like follow back links or ads, at the footer of each individual blog post.

Here are the details.

All about Dynamic Views for Readers:
Blogger currently offers five dynamic views for its public blogs. These views are only accessible if allowed for by the blog author.

Mosaic: available at [blogURL]/view/mosaic
Sidebar: available at [blogURL]/view/sidebar
