I have only just settled in with Typepad and was beginning to feel right at home. I do feel that Mr Young’s statement was a bit ambiguous though. It is also a shame that a statement such as that has been made and nothing has been done from the top to calm the fears of the members here that have been long time supporters and users of Typepad and have a lot at stake in regards to their content etc. Instead, it seems to have been left to the support team to fight fires the best that they can with the knowledge that they have. My own interpretation is that, the direction SAY Media are wanting to take Typepad and the way they wish to develop it in terms of the functionality and tools will be directed more towards the ‘Media Moguls’ and professional bloggers than the ‘every day’ blogger. I also have a feeling that this will include a review of the pricing structure somewhere along the line leaving it perhaps less affordable to the every day blogger hence why they predict they will lose some customers. To me this just highlights the risk that we take by using a hosted blogging or CMS platform as essentially we are leaving our content in someone else’s hands. I am sorry to say that I will probably move to a self hosted installation of WordPress. Nothing against Typepad, it is a great service and very easy to use but at least that way, I am in control of what happens to my content and am not at risk of taking the time to develop my site only to find that the service becomes unaffordable for me or ceases to meet my needs several months down the line. I wish Typepad every success though and who knows, maybe I’ll be proved wrong and end up moving back at some stage!
