From Anol at Soulsoup (which is now a 404!):
“mBlog, the free MT based blog hosting service where my SoulSoup was hosted discontinued their service without any notice! I don’t have any backup of my last 8 months of blogposts (more than 450 posts).
There is no way I can contact them – I mailed mBlog support – and that bounced.
SoulSoup along with many other blogs right now in deep soup.”
Ick, horrible, no notice and now the cheeky buggers say:
“A number of requests from our members have prompted us to offer a restoration service at a nominal fee.”
Which basically means that they’re holding your blog to ransom… bloody hell! If they’d given their users a few days notice they could at least have shifted their content.
Terrible stuff, the content should be made freely available to all bloggers who want to export it.
(I wonder to what degree MT are at fault here too, the notice on the mBlog homepage seems to indicate that they might be)
