Contemplating My Future with Blogger

I am currently considering what to do about my blogger blog. Google is soon (May 1 now) forcing all blogs to be run from their servers. This makes perfect sense to them and they have lots of reasons for wanting to do it. The don’t really give me any reasons to want to have it hosted there, though they do a great job of coming up with answers for all the reasons I might now want to. They don’t answer the chief one which is just because I don’t and when I signed up with them it wasn’t an issue and now it is.

So I’m forced to choose between hosting it there and keeping Blogger or changing to something like Word Press where I can host it wherever I want. I’m almost certain that I will be leaving Blogger at this point on principle but I will be thinking about it for a few more days.

I am, at heart, a software developer though I am currently managing a small Information Technology department for a mid sized company located in my hometown of Jacksonville, FL. When I am not playing with the latest smart-phone or trying to become inspired to write code I read almost anything I can get my hands on from Pulp Era adventures to biographies of world leaders and everything in between.
