Mammooty starts blogging – But on blogspot ?

M

I was happy to hear the news today, that Malayalam cine super star Mammootty started blogging on Jan 1, 2009. But was surprised to see that he’s on blogspot, and that too with an awkward domain name. The URL is at http://i-am-mammootty.blogspot.com

I think Mr.Mammooty had to go with the popular misconception that a “blog” has to be on blogspot.com and has to carry a blogspot extension. Sad !

Aamir Khan and Amitabh has both popular blogs in Bollywood and Aamir is on his own domain, while Big B is on Bigadda (but that’s a deal with the Ambanis.)

I would’ve easily guessed Mr.Mammooty to start the blog on his own domain, it’s not difficult to find one these days right ? May be he does not know the problems of starting the blog on blogspot.com.

  • Anyone could flag the blog and get it deleted from blogspot.
  • You could have a tough time moderating comments
  • Zero scalability
  • Possible threat of getting deleted from blogger

After all it takes only 250 Rs to register a .com domain.

Anyways, Mr.Mammooty if you are listening, I own Mamoottyblog.com, and there are lot of searches on Google on “Mammootty blog”. If you’d like to have the domain name, I’d be happy to.

  • I agree – he should buy a domain and host the site. Its not like he don’t have the money 😉

    But I am not sure what you meant by ‘Zero scalability’ as a disadvantage of blogger – can you explain?

  • Scalability in every form Binny. What could be done if they wanted to introduce a better comment system, or a discussion forum, or any such functions? Had it been on WP they’dve had the best platform to do all that. Silly.

  • @NIkhil yes it does. The same with Mohanlal’s supposedly “official” website. THey uses keyloggers as the diagnosis says. Sad.

  • Very Recently, there has been a good deal of investigation by the
    FTC against blogs and website promoters
    for not stating advertising income, or existing
    relationships with advertising networks.

    What are your personal thoughts concerning how this could potentially effect
    the blog world?

  • Hi, I recently started a bloghosting platform (based on wordpress MU) and when I stumbled your blog I paid attention to your theme (looking good) so I was wondering can you tell me is it custom made theme or one of those free ones? thanks in advance! regards, blogiskewl
