Starting my personal blog on FC2

After I checked a number of blog services, I choose FC2 Blog as the platform for my personal blog. The FC2 Blog service has three advantages relevant to my purpose:

  • Pretty authoring interface for mobile phones
  • Interface for readers allowing bilingual contexts
  • High degree of freedom to customize template HTML and style sheets

I use the template and style as simple and lite as possible, for stress-free browsing through narrow-band network or powerless devices. Contents are mixture of Japanese and English, with a template basically English for full browsers and basically Japanese for mobile phones. I usually write articles on mobile phones and post it via so-called "moblog" interface.

On the other hand, FC2 blog has some defects as a free service:

  • No technical support
  • Forced insertion of advertisements in articles

The last defect could be solved by making a claim to FC2 that this blog is on educational purpose, as FC2 provides. But I have not yet tried it.

Unfortunately, the mobile authoring interface is not fully compatible with the English display mode. Readers of this blog will sometimes encounter Japanese messages, such as error alerts upon comment submission.

I asked FC2 for exemption from advertisement insertion. It seems accepted. Advertisements have disappeared.
