Blogger has done a rather decent thing, in replacing the ads at the top with a search toolbar. Enter a word or two, click search, and it will find the most recent entry containing those words. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work very well, as if you happen to know, for example, how many times I’ve mentioned Daunte Culpepper over the last ten months, it’s quite clear that the search tool is not finding all of them.
Still, it beats ads for Bill Clinton’s book or whatever. And I’m sure they’ll improve it soon; Blogger has been very good about continuing to improve its product.
