I am uncomfortable with the risk of hosting my blog on a platform that capriciously removes access.
I have put a lot of time into this blog, and some of you appreciate reading it. However I am seriously contemplating moving away from Blogger. While the risk was theoretical, I didn't care. Now it has become for some (including one of Faid's profiles) real, it is time to re-evaluate the alternatives.
I recommend using an alias when writing blogs. I don't recommend using Google under alias. I therefore recommend that anyone starting a new blog should consider platforms other than Blogger.
This google hosted forum has reports for others with issues.
Moving has the following costs :
- New domain name. I will lose readers by the shift.
- The time taken to do the shift.
- Time taken learning a new platform.
However, for those that have moved platforms (Annalias?); either WoW related or otherwise, how did you find the move?
What other blogging solutions would you, as either a reader or author, recommend?
