Blogger stops FTP, I’m off to WordPress

Blogger announced on the 22nd of January (though I don’t read their blog so only found out by email today) that they’re discontinuing FTP and SFTP publishing services after March 26th. Unfortunately I rely on FTP to publish here because I don’t want to host my blog on Google’s servers.

I’ve not been overly happy with Blogger’s service, so this is probably going to be the catalyst for me moving to WordPress. I’m going to have to do some reading to see how that’s going to work/happen but it’s likely webpages, RSS feeds and so on are going to change so if you’re still interested in what I have to say watch this space for news.

  1. is nice for new bloggers and those that aren’t technical enough to get a blog setup, but the freedom and advantages that come from hosting and managing your own WordPress blog is well worth the time and effort it takes to move.
