TypePad, the paid blogging system from Six Apart (makers of our favourite blogging tool Movable Type),will launch in preview release Tuesday (Monday 11:59pm US Eastern Time- 11:59am Tuesday Western (Australian) Standard Time) with some excellent features and competitive pricing structure which will provide some much needed competition to the Google controlled giant Blogger.
Packages include a $4.95 USD/ month basic package, $8.95 USD/ month Plus Package and a Pro package at $14.95 USD/month.
Judgement is still out as to whether the pricing structure will tempt Blogger Pro clients, who get their premium service at $10 USD/ month.
Certainly the Plus and Pro package offer great features which read better than offered by Google.
