It was five-and-a-half years of fun, but it had to end I suppose. Blogger recently announced that they would no longer support FTP blogging, which is how I managed this blog since 2004. It was nice of them to offer the service for free to begin with, so I can’t get too bent out of shape about it. Simply put, I would sign in to Blogger to make posts on anthonyzierhut.com, instead of a blogspot address. It was convenient, but occasionally buggy, and sometimes leaving me unable to post anything at all; and so I guess they don’t want the headache of keeping that aspect of their service going.
So, this is the new Sketchblog — thanks to my programmer friend Josh and to WordPress! I’m also a little relieved to be clear of the Blogger / Google Empire too, to be honest…
None of the links to my blog or website should be any different. So if you link to me, fear not! Everything should work as smoothly or smoother than it ever has.
