It looks like a dog with a birthday hat, isn't it?
Something special to celebrate?

Blogger was launched in August 1999 as one of the earliest dedicated blog-publishing tools; it is credited for helping popularize the form.

And look what evhead says:

"Yep, seven years ago, on this day, I wrote on this blog:

   We just launched a cool new tool at Pyra. It's called Blogger. It's an automated weblog publishing tool.

It seemed like a good idea at the time."
