Over the past week, music bloggers using Google’s Blogger.com have been complaining that their posts are being removed without their consent. While Blogger allows users to quickly toss up a site, seasoned writers often graduate to a more robust software package such WordPress.
It seems as though this recent censorship is convincing more and more Blogger users to jump ship. This week, veteran music bloggers, Quick Before it Melts and The Music Slut have made the jump, not only to WordPress, but to their own domain names. (congrats to them)
With Blogger removing more and more posts daily, how long will it be before more music (and other) blogs move to WordPress? If you have a story about Google censoring your posts, leave it in the comments.
