Silenced by software…
Blogger–the engine that drives my [sometimes] daily updates–has been down for most of the weekend. This is bad. Blogger remains free to use, but it’s increasingly clear that, lacking reliability, free is costly in its own right.
I don’t know why Blogger hasn’t migrated to a subscription model. I’ve expected it–looked forward to it, even–since December 2000. Blogger is a victim of its own success, with scores of thousands of users overwhelming its servers. And it’s a bloody shame, because there’s no reason–none that I can see, anyway–that they couldn’t charge even the most nominal of fees and find a model that’s sustainable… maybe even hugely profitable.
Blogger! Please! Sell me a reliable service!
