Alright. Have slept, am calmer, and am less concerned with the prospect of this site tanking in the rankings or being harder to find because it is on blogspot. In common with Improbulus, I believe that Freshblog is dug in too deep now to make moving worthwhile, esp. if some efforts are made to clean house at Blogspot. As Jim said in a comment on last night's rant, you shouldn't have to pay to play. The whole point of the blogosphere is that it democratises access and allows alternative perspectives to be articulated without regard to finances. If you can click through the set-up form & write something half-decent, you can be read. I can't afford a server & a fast connection, so for now, this is it!!
House needs to be cleaned, for sure, & trust won back, but I'm going to sit tight for a while & see how Google play this out.
