Public Service Announcement
If you are an 'active blogger' (whatever that means), you can sign up for a free Gmail (Google Email) account. Sign into Blogger, look on the right of the Dashboard screen (the first screen you get to) and you'll see something that says 'Want Gmail?' Click 'Yes, please' and follow the quick and easy instructions. You can get any name you want on your Gmail account, it doesn't have to be related to your blog.
