  1. Reblogged this on Retirement Reflections and commented:
    I just came across Mike Nelson’s post about his recent platform change. There are many blogs that I follow that currently use Blogspot. I know that many of them have never experienced a single technical problem (something that I could only dream of). Still, Mike’s post gave me pause. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic (as I know Mike would as well).

    1. Thanks for reblogging Donna.
      I also never had any technical problems with Blogspot… at least technical issues.
      (Ironically, the more features are being added to software, the higher likelihood of temporary bugs. Whereas software that isn’t getting new features is less likely to have things break.)
      My main motivation for abandoning Blogspot was that I’m afraid Google will (like, in the next 5 years) announce its being shut down. It’s marketshare had dropped to its 2011 levels, see https://w3techs.com/technologies/history_overview/content_management/all/y


  2. Interesting post even for a new blogger like myself. I am still learning the jargon and sifting through the “how to videos”. I have had no prior knowledge on how to set up a site and I just jumped right in with WordPress.com. Your post makes me feel better about continuing to work with this site. Thank you. Erica

  3. Got an email from Google today validating my decision to leave Blogger. They’re shutting down Google+ (at least for personal accounts) and only giving 6 months heads-up. Here’s what they emailed me today:
    In December 2018, we announced our decision to shut down Google+ for consumers in April 2019 due to low usage and challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers’ expectations. We want to thank you for being part of Google+ and provide next steps, including how to download your photos and other content.

    On April 2nd, your Google+ account and any Google+ pages you created will be shut down and we will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts.
