Google: We are not shutting down Blogger name Despite a persistent rumor, sources say Google will not be shutting down the "Blogger" brand.
Rumor had it that Google was set to retire the popular Picasa and Blogger brand names, instead choosing to move them to Google Photos and Google Blogs.

The plan, speculation had it, was to unify all the Google brands in sync with the launch of Google+, the social network.

Google, in the past, had made similar moves; Rebranding JotSpot as Google Sites in 2008 and rebranding GrandCentral as Google Voice in 2009.

Blogger and Picasa, however, are household names with reputations that go as far back as Google.

LoL...I thought the reputation that Blogger has made for itself would be the reason to shut it down! That is usually how corporations deal with things that have earned a terrible reputation...change the name and let it ruin a whole new reputation.

I would certainly hope that I wouldn't lose my 200+ readers from last month. Where else can I get this cheap a therapy?
