Blogspot URLs

Just a caution to people to be aware that if you change/delete your blog address, eg from:




then your old URL instantly becomes availabe for new users. This has just happened with Dave Banana's old blog, which fortunately has been adopted by a nice, interesting-looking blog: Life in Dubai - http://dubaithoughts.blogspot.com.

However you may remember Feed Your Head was not so lucky: when he/she deleted, someone created an offensive blog in its place, which could have got FYH into even more trouble if the authorities didn't recognise the ownership change.

So if you want to delete your blog temporarily or permanently, consider leaving it up but with all entries deleted, except one announcing: "This blog is now closed".
