Changes in Blogspot. A few weeks ago I got a message I didn't understand from Blogger, and Sean asked me to describe it, because he apparently didn't receive it. I couldn't describe it and I didn't know where to find it. Well, it popped up again, and here it is:

Changes to your blog

What's changing: We will be retiring the Blog*Spot Plus feature from Blogger on 30 October 2006.

Features of Blog*Spot Plus include FTP access, non-blog uploads and subdirectory creation. We have added a warning icon (Warning) to your Dashboard to indicate which of your blogs is a Plus blog. Click the icon to see this message again.
What this means for you: This will not affect your blog much.

We'll continue hosting all content you've uploaded to this point and you'll be able to update your blog with text and images, just like always. But, you will no longer be able to upload non-blog content or have FTP access to the content you've already uploaded.
What you can do: You have two options for future hosting.

Stick with blogspot hosting. This does not require any action on your part. All your old content will be exactly the same and you'll be able to update your blog and post images using

Move to an external hosting service. If you want to continue to upload non-image files and have FTP access to your blog content, you will need to obtain external hosting on your own before the Blog*Spot Plus feature is discontinued. We will send you an additional reminder closer to this date, too.

If you have any questions, please see our Blogger help article.
