AntiCraft Blog, R.I.P.
So here's the deal. When I realized that this is not the first time I've forgotten to announce a new issue on our own damn blog, I knew something about the process was broken. And it wasn't just the AC blog. My own personal blog, started in October of 2000, has become a wasteland of half-hearted, infrequent posts. Many of the Staff don't even bother with their own blogs. Blogging—for The AntiCraft Staff, at least—as a concept is broken.
We started off using the blog software that our ISP provided... and it was kind of a hassle. More PHP than I knew what to do with. We switched over to Blogger, which worked well, we thought, but as it turns out, we were part of an extremely small percentage of bloggers who used Blogger, but hosted all the blog info (posts, pictures, template code, etc.) on their own server. However, Blogger has decided to phase out that option, given that so few folks use it.
We can't fault them for that. It's good business sense. And, to Blogger's credit, they have worked really hard to make changing over as painless as possible. But it's still a bit of a hassle.
