Chances are everyone in the blog world has heard already about Google’s change in policy to eliminate explicit pics and video from their Blogger blogs.
There are a ton of posts about it today so you can go here to read about it or look at pretty much everyone’s sites.
I’m just worried that a lot of very good blogs are going to die off. It’s not that they have to actually leave Blogger and they will not lose any content but until they can remove all images and videos that may be explicit in nature their blog well be forced to go private. Some of those blogs have been around for many years and have hundreds, if not more, of posts. That’s a hell of a lot to go through.
I could be wrong but it does seem these blog authors could link to pictures and video that are sexual in nature but cannot have the images displayed on their actual blog. So that could be one way to get around it but, to be honest, I don’t know if I’d want to take the chance. There are other options but I don’t know if any sex related blog is safe on a “free” platform.
Ok just my opinion… I’d really hate to lose so much amazing content. This really is “Blogocalypse 2015” and personally I think Google is stupid for not finding another way.
