I just read that as of March 26 this year, Blogger will no longer be allowing / supporting publishing via FTP. They offer two options (Custom Domains like blog.doodle-head.com or Blogspot hosted like doodle-head.blogspot.com). I don't think I like either of these options (neither allows me to keep doodle-head.com/blog and neither allows me to keep everything on my server), so I have some research and work ahead.
Oh, and I'm tech support for my quilt guild's and my father's blogs, so I'm going to have to figure out something there too - and I JUST got my father to start using his blog a little. He's not as computer-geeky as me, so I've got to make sure whatever I do for him is something I can support.
