It's only advisable to set up a blog if there is some interesting, unique info that the company would like to discuss within it that can help or intrigue people.

Otherwise, no, it's not advisable.

If you do set up a blog (and I agree with Jill that there's no reason to do so unless you've actually got something to say) my preference would be to set it up on the company's domain rather than using Blogger.

I'm not so sure that's a good enough reasons to start a blog, plenty of people have far too much to say and should really keep it to themselves.... oh hmm, ok i'll shut up now whistling.gif

Qwerty's advice is spot on. This little bit from Section 10 of the terms of service is enough to keep me from using Blogger (or any other hosted blog service, for that matter, as they basically all contain similar terms):
QUOTE
Google may, in its sole discretion, at any time and for any reason, terminate the Service, terminate this Agreement, or suspend or terminate your account. In the event of termination, your account will be disabled and you may not be granted access to your account or any files or other content contained in your account although residual copies of information may remain in our system for some time for back-up purposes.

I'll set up blog software on my own domains all day long, but I would be disinclined to use a hosted blog service for anything important.

And they do.

My sister's many year old business blog that she wrote in regularly was taken away from her for no reason at all. Took her months to get it back and there was never an explanation as to what happened.

And that's a great reason not to use Blogger, but it's not the one I was thinking of.

I just think that if your business has a site and you choose to create a blog to further promote that business and its site, then the blog should be part of the site. If a blog on your company's domain attracts attention and links, that's attention and links for your main site. If a blog on a separate domain attracts attention and links, you can link from there to your main site, but it's nowhere near as powerful.

If you are really interested in running blog, you can start not a problem.

But really ur blog should have very good good stuff. Then people notice ur blog.

I agree jill words about blogger. They will suspend our blog without proper notification.

So better you can create blog in your own domain.

Good luck
