It's not just the Python Insider blog that is affected (and *any*
effort directed towards platform changes is effort that isn't going
towards writing new articles. Of course, if Blogger don't fix the
currrent problems, then that will be a moot point - moving will be
necessary to get *anything* done).

In general, though, infrastructure changes start from a position of
"not worth the hassle", just like code changes. It takes a pretty
compelling set of features to justify switching, and, while Blogger
isn't the best engine out there, it isn't terrible either (especially
once you replace their lousy comment system with something that is at
least half usable like DISQUS).
