Google has decided to drop FTP support from Blogger. The one saving grace is that if you’re currently hosting a site that’s updated by Blogger with FTP, you're not going to lose anything except the ability to continue to update the site - if it's an old site, it’ll keep on keepin' on. That's the beauty of HTML files. If you’e still actively blogging, however, you'll want to check out the new Blogger FTP blog they've set up to try to help migrate users to their custom domains solution. There has been some confusion in the comments about who’s impacted by the announcement that we're deprecating FTP on Blogger. The easiest way to determine if you're affected is to go to Blogger, select "settings" for your blog and click on "publishing". If you're on FTP, you'll see something like (see screenshot). A bit more information: If your blog URL ends in "blogspot.com", you’re not affected; If you don't see "You're publishing via FTP" (or "You're publishing via S/FTP") when you go to "Settings | Publishing", you’re not affected.
