Earlier in the year Google changed their policy forcing me to migrate my Blog from my server to their servers. Taking not only my traffic, but requiring a URL change -- not good.
I understand there was some type of support issue for Google. Plus given all the other stuff Google provides -- most importantly for me search, adsense, youtube I can't complain too much :-)
At anyrate, the change forced me to evaluate other blogging software. Turns out WordPress
not only allowed me to host my own Blog
it was much more feature rich! I'm actually happy I made the switch. I was able to even import all of my my old blog posts post.
So long Blogger!
