Blogger FTP publishing is no more

February 03, 2010 Posted by Vaire

Yesterday I got an e-mail from Blogger saying that they 'will no longer support FTP publishing in Blogger after March 26, 2010'. Sigh. FTP is what I use to publish this blog.

When I first made the blog, BlogSpot didn't exist and I used FTP, then I tried BlogSpot and it worked fine, but when I bought my own domain, I wanted my blog to reside there so I went back to FTP and have continued to use it.

In the meantime, Blogger has implemented new ways of hosting and linking blogs which, I must admit, are better than just plain FTP. Since things were working as they should, I haven't poked around or changed anything, but now I shall have to.

This blog has been hosted in at least four places and each time I have moved I've lost readers because of it. I do not want this to happen again! I will do my best to keep the blog as stable as I can over the transition. Hopefully, the only things that change are the technical ones in the background, not how they look.
