Blogger Getting Rid Of FTP

Hmmm... apparently Google/Blogger are getting rid of their FTP publishing service. This sucks, because I use Blogger to publish my... erm... blog.

I would note that Blogger don't seem to have suggested any way to migrate my existing content. Which sucks.

Time to roll up my sleeves and see what I can set up to move my blog wholesale to GoDaddy.

It's a file transfer protocol. Basically I have my own server, but rather than running Wordpress or some other blog software on it, I just use Blogger to keep the data all in the cloud on a server somewhere, and tell them to publish all of the data to my server, so I have an archive I can control.
