For the last three months or so, Google/Blogspot (which is what I use to write this here blog thingy) has been stringing me along with “In two weeks, we’re going to eliminate FTP service to non-blogspot URL’s.” This blog would be one of those apparently few affected entities. So…I’ve been loathe to update here, because I’m trying to figure out how to proceed.
I’d hate to lose the content here…and hate to have to blog under a new URL. I’ve made a lot of contacts with worthy musicians here and there and they’ve come to know this blog under this name, and starting from scratch seems like too high a mountain to climb. The other side of the coin is that I’ve no idea how to migrate the data or format (which is actually on my own server) to something else (like WordPress? I have to confess to being totally out of my element here.)
Anyhow, as I understand it, I won’t be able to update the blog in the manner I’m used to after Saturday. If anyone reading this knows how I can move the content of the blog without losing things, I’m all ears. Drop me a line at chris11201 (followed by the @) (followed by gmail dot com).
