Why Blogspot Sucks (And Free Blogs In General)

Ok, so blogspot/blogger pulled my blog after 6 YEARS of being online because they deemed it “spam” because there were a handful of affiliate links in it. Relatively speaking it was quite low and certainly not a “splog”, as you can tell by my posts here, as I genuinely dislike programs so I’m not one to post referral links everywhere. There were maybe 5 or 6 affiiate links out of 135 posts and 6 years of writing. That shows you how stupid their reviewers are, in my opinion.

Anyway, here I am with a new wordpress installation, and a warning to anyone reading that this is what you should do in the first place and, yes I do know better. It’s just that back in 2007 when I started this blog I really didn’t know better then and assumed that, if it’s owned by Google, then it’s the way to go, right? I mean they can’t be bad ALL the time…oh, how times have changed! Now Google is “Big Brother” and everything they touch turns to suck.

So, if you read any old posts and see some broken stuff just blame it on blogspot, and my early naive days online. I’m MUCH more internet savvy now. Over the next few days I’ll be adding a pretty template and all that jazz, so hang in there until then. Thanks!!

Lesson to be learned: DON’T USE FREE HOSTED BLOGS! Own your content!!
