Blogger.com (owned by Google) has quit supporting FTP deployment of blog posts. This means that they no longer support using their software for blogging unless you host your blog on Blogger.com. For some reason, and against the complaints of thousands of bloggers who host blogs on their own domains, Google chose to not even offer FTP blog publishing as a paid upgrade. They are entitled to make a profit and they can’t inject advertisements into privately hosted blogs for revenue but they certainly could have simply just charged for the service. It appears to me that they’re more interested in physically holding your content than in direct profit. I don’t understand it but I am sure there’s more profit for them somewhere in giving free online storage than in not giving the storage.
So the bottom line is that thousands of users like me are trying to recreate their blogs.
If you’ve posted comments on my blog since May 1, 2010, this is why they have not shown up on my site. I approve the comments but Google won’t publish them.
I’m trying WordPress now and this article is posted using WordPress. I will work on how to integrate my previous blog articles into the WordPress blog. Until then, here are links to my previous articles:
