I was thinking. How about 1) creating a logo for the Café, 2) designing an own skin and template for it, 3) signing each posting with category-label, and 4) moving the publishing to an own ISP. The reasons, respectively are: 1) brand rules, 2) uniqueness sells, 3) organized is neat, and 4) control over data is important.
One of the hosts responded to my ideas: 1) "Agree, but ask an artist to do that, you're just a café manager -- you don't have the skill to design a "powerful" logo"; 2) "Why? Blogger® has lots of options -- why bother design your own?"; 3) "Great. Can you do that? I was told, Blogger® doesn't have that feature. Ask any blogger out there to help you. There's this thing called "Technorati®-technique", I heard"; and 4) "Why? Blogger® provides free storage. Afraid it might collapse one day? Well, it will lose big time -- the people there don't want that to happen, believe me".
You think he's right?
