Google announced this week that they’re not going to be supporting FTP for publishing on blogger anymore. Apparently the option isn’t that popular and consumes a disproportionate amount of resources. Unfortunately, I need it if I want to continue to use a separate web host and a private domain. I could switch to Google hosting, but I’d rather not do that.
So I started looking at WordPress. I think it will work fine, although I’m not happy with how it looks just yet. I can customize any of the templates, but I don’t have a great starting point yet. If anyone’s got any suggestions or opinions about how it looks, please let me know.
The old blogger posts are still there, but I haven’t gone through the trouble of trying to import them into WordPress because I don’t see any need to do that. They’re still there, you can still comment on them and I can still edit them for now. You can see the last few posts here and the archive is on the side bar.
