Google announced an overhaul of Blogger yesterday, which vastly improves the user interface for its many users worldwide. Google has been steadily improving Blogger’s service over 2010, adding features like template designer, comments spam filtering, web fonts and more, yet Google says the Blogger revamp is just the beginning of a big year of upgrades to Blogger in 2011.

The dashboard interface has been redesigned to be more modern and user-friendly, giving easy access to statistics, layout editing and useful features for writing new blog posts. Google used their Google Web Toolkit to create the new interface, showcasing just how powerful the Web Toolkit really is.
