The Bomarr Blog Is Moving (F*** Blogger)

The one-year anniversary of the Bomarr Blog being back is next Wednesday, April 14. To celebrate this milestone, I was going to wait until next week to announce that I'm no longer going to put up with Blogger's bullshit, and I'm jumping the gun (my inevitable shutdown) by moving to self-hosting. Unfortunately, I just got yet ANOTHER unnecessary takedown notice from Blogger today, so I'm going to go ahead and let you all know now that The Bomarr Blog will now be located at blog.bomarr.net .

Blogger has been on a rampage as of late, shutting down many great mp3 blogs that are just trying to help promote up-and-coming artists and/or get the word out about music they like. Often times, like myself, offering up links to where the full albums can be purchased. A good portion of the time, they remove content that the blogger actually had PERMISSION to post. I'd understand if I was posting Beatles discographies and things of that nature, but I'm not. I've also done nothing but cooperate with them when things have been taken down, but they still send repeat notices even after I've removed the offending content. When they issue a takedown, they set your post back to "draft" status, which allows you to edit it and re-publish. They clearly say "You may re-publish the posts with the offending content and/or link(s) removed." A while back, they did this for a Yeasayer track I posted, and I removed it immediately. Two weeks later, I got a notice for the same post, even though the link to the "infringing" mp3 was already long gone. This counted as 2 strikes against me. They just did the same thing today for a Tobacco remix of a Health song that I posted last week. On top of that, they even removed a post of a Bassnectar mp3 that I got FROM THE ARTIST. After speaking with Bassnectar, he confirmed that neither he, nor his label or management had anything to do with it.

So, to sum up my rant....Blogger wins. I'm moving. I can't put up with your bullshit anymore and you make it too difficult to contest things, even when you're wrong, so I bid you farewell.

Posting will not be interrupted at all. Everything stays the same aside from the web address. So please, update your bookmarks, find me on Twitter , and come visit me at my new home

Ah fuck. Speaking of moving blogs, how easy was it to do this? Did you have to move every post? I figure we may have problems at some point as well.

it was pretty simple actually. wordpress allows you to import an entire blog from blogger into wordpress. keeps the comments and everything. the only difference is that wordpress doesn't support the embeddable divshare players, but they make it easy to embed self-hosted audio anyway by just putting [audio thenthelink.mp3]

easy stuff.
