Though Blogger is a free blogging platform, but it gives you the privilege to add authors to your blog. On Blogger you can add more than 50 authors.

One may think before adding an author on Blogger like what permissions would have been given to an author by default or by adding an author to your blog you might be compromising with the security of your blog or when you remove an author, will his posts remain with your blog or not, etc.
