Today I decided I wanted to move a blog from Blogger to WordPress. It is a successful blog, where I showcase books for authors. It is called, New Book Blogger. Anyway, I decided I liked how WP kept to its schedules, and the layout is more suitable, so decided to rename the blog, The Virtual Bookcase, (thanks Jessica Bell), and spent hours creating the header.

Halfway through creating the blog, and uploading the posts, I got a message from WordPress. They think I have broken the policy of advertising, and deactivated the blog. I suppose in a way, it is advertising. I showcase books for authors, free. Their links go to their sales sites. It is a shame, as I am not gaining from the blog, I am trying to help fellow writers get their books seen.
I have contacted them in the hope they will review the old blog, and see what I am trying to do is for others, and not for my monetary gain. I wait for a response, with fingers crossed. Just a shame I wasted so many hours on a “light-bulb moment”
Have you had one, and ended up with a fail at the last minute?
