And this is an other test

Please be patient with me.  You may see my previous post about the ban on Blogger in Turkey.

So now I'm posting again because I want to be sure that my previous post was published.

If it was...and indeed if this post appears...please someone...anyone...comment on it and put me out of my misery.

Thankyou xxx

  5. Hi Ayak. Sorry to hear your in trouble with this blogger ban business. Up early this morning. Couldn’t sleep, so I'm trying to catch up on some blog postings.

    As I understand it - you can post a blog post and read other peoples comments on that post - but you cannot post a comment back again in response?

    That being the case - here's a couple of thoughts off the cuff:

    a) As this Blogger ban looks to be set in stone for at least the near future, you may have to investigate either

    1) Sharing your blog (like a team blog) with another blogger outside of Turkey. This would involve assigning access to your blog to another blogger, but it may not be practical.

    2) If that's not possible, you may have to consider setting up a mark two version of your existing blog here - in tandem with another blogger outside Turkey, but again, on a team blog basis, so that an assigned team/shared author of the new blog, you will be able to enjoy full authorship access from 'where ever you are - including Turkey' because you are simply accessing the mark two blog via the internet, and not via Google Blogger Turkey. If that makes sense.

    You would probably have to give the new blog a new name based around your existing name, and then post a great big link and 'We've moved' notice - here, for all your readers to clearly see and so on.

    You should also email Google Blogger Turkey and USA, to ask them if you can simply transfer your existing blog with all it's existing templates and data, to another country blogger domain or shared access 'mark two' site.

    Due to the current situation with Turkey, they will have been asked this question already and may have already come up with a simple solution for you. Even if it takes a while for them to get back to you.

    You can also 'Google' the blogger help forums on this very issue and see if there's already alot of help chat being offered to Turkish blogger users.

    If you started up a 'mark two' site with one of your closest long term blogger friends, you wont ever have to worry about the sensitivity of shared access to your blog's inner workings, layout, dashboard and so on.

    I'm pretty sure the mark two blog option would work best for you, and I wouldn’t mind betting that Blogger will have come up with a way for you to transfer your existing blog here to a new site and revised name in another country.

    3) Set up a new blog with word press. Although this is probably not such an attractive option.

    b) You are more than welcome to email me direct about any of these issues, or any other help you could do with about this - you will find my personal blogger email address published on my 'profile' page on my blog, so feel free to use it Ayak. Others do. (I wont publish it here cos the spammers will grab it)

    You have our collective sympathies at the moment, as we all understand how important it is for you engage with your blogger followers on a daily basis all the way out there.

    Hope something helps here. Sorry about the length of this message. Phil.

  6. N/B This is attempt number 2, to send this comment as it all went a bit pear shaped here a moment ago when I posted the 1st version of this comment - I will now try sending this to you as a personal email Ayak. Good luck.
