Attn. Blogspotters: Apportunity to Dump Always-Broken ISP

Now that I'm linking to a bunch of blogspot blogs, I'm noticing that blogspot is down a lot. Like, 10% at least. Just wanted you guys to know that you can get hosted with our bunch, logjamming.com for $5/month ($60 per year) and not have to deal with all the funky downtime. If you're using blogger as your management system, you just point it to your new domain, publish, and viola! it works.

Comment below or use the feedback widget on the left if you have technical questions as to how to get this done. This is what I do at work all the time, and can help you make the transition if yer interested.

Nope, not a paid advert, just a satisfied customer trying to get the blogs he reads more reliability.

eMail this entry!

I've been considering this type of move... thanks for the links, I'm looking into it.

I do have a question or two for you though.... how easy (I'm not sure if you have an answer to this, since I have no idea if you've used blogger) to use is MT vs. Blogger?

Logjammer.com mentions webmail access for e-mail addresses... do they also have pop3 access (I can't find the info & I'm assuming you use this service) via an external client (Eudora or Outlook/Outlook Express, specifically). I assume they do.

sorry... I just don't want to contact Logjamming until I've discussed it with my wife... and I'm at work.

No probs! I must've hit your own blog entry the moment you put it up (I'm stuck in a crisis, waiting for the techs to call me back).

It's been a long time since we used blogger, but as I recall the transition was pretty darned straightforward. The mechanics of just posting are quite simple, and you get tons more flexibility in many other ways.

Yes, they have pop3 access, and I inadvertantly discovered they also have SMTP access (which is how my fancy email widgets work).

As noted on my own comment, AMCGLTD What a bizzare concept.
