Blogger Maintenance January 9 Morning

January 8, 2007

In Blogger Help Group: Scheduled Blogger Outage Tuesday, January 9th, 2007, Helper warns us

Just wanted to give you all a heads-up that the old Blogger will be down for a couple hours tomorrow (Tuesday, January 9th, 2007). This scheduled outage applies to the old Blogger from 7:45am-9:45am PST. You will not be able to post to old Blogger blogs or access any old Blogger blogs on Blog*Spot during this time. We also will not be allowing any new accounts or new blogs to be created on the new Blogger during this outage. Google Groups will be also be undergoing planned maintenance on Tuesday the 9th. Accordingly, some features may be temporarily unavailable (including the Blogger Help Group).

Old Blogger, New Blogger, and Blogger Help Group all down at the same time. Might be a good day to take off.

Custom Domain Names Hosted By Blogger

January 5, 2007

Until this week, if you wanted to have a Blogger blog, you had two choices – host the blog on Blog*Spot (as a subdomain of Blog*Spot.com), or host it offsite (with your choice of domain).

Now, there’s a third choice – have a blog hosted by Blog*Spot, but with the domain name of your choice. All of the features of New Blogger, under your custom domain name. But beware, this is yet another Beta product (if not by name, by nature), and various problems have been identified, to date.
