Blogger for hosting a non-blog oriented site

Today, while checking on when the library opens near me, I noticed that they did some sort of site redesign and I was liking it.

Then I looked at the address bar - it's a blogspot.com URL. I have to say, I am really impressed - someone managed to create a Blogger site that definitely didn't strike me as a blog.

At first, I thought it might be the new Blogger Pages that made this layout possible. Though, I don't quite think that's it. Pages allow for secondary content, but still assume your home page will made up of blog posts.

Instead, I think they may have gone the route of outlined here to create a custom front page. It's a clever solution and one worth knowing about.

I'd definitely suggest reviewing the librarry site - it's an excellent example of how you can put up a solid internet presence with almost zero infrastructure or costs.
