Bye-bye Blogspot

November 30th, 2002 · No Comments

So, looks like I’m not only going to be abandoning my Blogspot site, I
will be abandoning Blogger as well.

Not that I don’t love Blogger. It’s been great. There have been a few
hangups, but for the most part, I’m pleased with it. The problem is
that it’s publishing method is FTP. My brother doesn’t want to install
FTP on his server, since it’s so insecure. Which means I needed to come
up with an alternative method of publishing my blog if I wanted to move

The solution: Moveable Type.
Ben’s got it up and running on Garion (which is the name of his
server), and I’ve got my domain name registered. It will probably be a
couple of days before it’s actually moved over, though.
Moveable Type does have a few advantages. For one, I’ll be able to keep
this site up for awhile to redirect people to my new site. From all
I’ve seen on Blogger, if I were to move my site from Blogspot, this
would disappear almost immediately. I was concerned about this. Another
good thing is that the comments are internally hosted on Ben’s server,
which means I never have to worry about YACCS going down.
And for all of you who are wondering, I’m not going to tell you my
domain name yet. I want it to be a surprise. I’m rather proud of it,
actually. In fact, I’m very proud of it. But there’s absolutely nothing
there yet, so there’s no point in posting a link. And it’s not even
Harry Potter related. Imagine that!
