Vagabond Site Without Blogger

I published a travelogue entry a few nights ago before laying down to sleep. It published, everything was fine, life was good. I awoke the next morning and tried to publish another entry . . . and it did not work. Blogger croaked.

So I waited a few hours and tried again to the same ends:

Blogger would no longer publish my travelogue entries to my server. A server timeout error code was all I could get. My posts would not publish. At this time I could not tell if this was a problem with Blogger, the system that I used to publish this travelogue, or with my server at So I published another page to my server through a different FTP program - it worked. I called my server at just to make sure that everything was running properly - it was.

So it became clear that my problem was with Blogger and not my server. I tried to find a contact number to check out what was going on. There is no telephone number for Blogger. So I had to resolve myself with going through their help center message boards. After about five minutes of this, I grew weary.

Why do I need Blogger to be my middle man for publishing a blog anyway?

Why can't I just do it myself?

These thoughts seeped into my consciousness as I realized that my searched for a solution to my problems were futile. I gave up. Two days later Blogger still will not publish my new travelogue entries.

So I made a blog myself.

It is not yet perfect - I still need to learn how to make a comment form.

But it is coming together.

I probably could have fixed this Blogger problem somehow, but I simply do not wish to take a chance of having Blogger malfunctioning again. I know how annoyed I would be if I were in Africa with a load of travelogue entries ready to go without a way to publish them.

I no longer need a middle man.

I do not need Blogger anymore.

After I successfully figure out how to make a comment form, I will be ready to publish my travelogue on my own.

I do not like to rely on others.
