Over the weekend on Twitter, I asked for bloggers to share reasons why they used FTP instead of Custom Domains. Most people, once I'd explained the advantages of Custom Domains, tended to agree that was the better path... and the time seemed ripe for diving in, as we'd had a number of FTP-related issues over the last several weeks.
A number of users responded, and I just did a pretty comprehensive post over on Buzz (do I get the award for longest Buzz post ever? I think I do!) If you're using Blogger FTP and would like to better understand whether Custom Domains might be a better option, I suggest you check it out.
We've also created a Help Group specifically around this topic, so we can answer additional questions that you might have. Please read the article, then head over to the help group if you need additional help. Thanks to everyone who provided input, and to all of you who rely on Blogger as your blogging service.
