They're shutting us down!!

I just got an email that myblogspot is shutting down at the end of this month. We will no longer be able to access our posts so I just finished copying and pasting mine. I don't know if there is anywhere else we can go or what...but this is the end of here.......
Goodbye everyone...goodbye....

What? Seriously? Blogspot will be no more in 2 weeks?

Marc better hurry and transfer my posts over to the new blog.

It's pretty cheap to get your own domain name, Ang. And there are several other "blogger" type places out there. Not that I can think of any right now...

Seriously? I hadn't heard this...

Ange, you might want to double-check that email. We never received anything like that. It could be spam.

Blogspot/Blogger is, if I am not mistaken, the world's largest blog server. It is highly unlikely that they would shut down, especially given that blogging is still on the rise. If they were shutting down, it would be all over the internet, with people complaining on their blogs--it would probably even be in the news.

I'm going to double-check this, but I suspect this is a hoax. Can a person still sign up for a new blog account? Has anyone else mentioned this? These are questions that need to be answered. In fact, could you forward that email to us?

heck, I never even thought of it being a hoax...wow. Can someone say gullible? I just knew there was no way I was signing up for their money one. Maybe we don't have anything to worry about because no one else I talk to HAS gotten this email. Let me know when you find out, k?

However, just to be on the safe side I have saved all my posts in a word document...

Ah, so they were asking for money? Smells shadier by the minute...

I haven't gotten any funky email like that either.

Love Mom said...

That would so be great if it were just a hoax...or plot for money...they will never get my money...nevah....wah ha ha ha

Sounded fishy to me too, but Marc and Dixie beat me to the punch.

Blogger is safe and sound...blog on, Angela. :)

But the goodbye put a tear in my eye anyway! LOL
