Default Locked Out Of My Blog

I use blogger for my blog - has been over a year now. So far it has met my needs.

The other day, I received an email stating that my blog has been tagged as spam and that I had to verify it (no problem) then it would take a couple of days for them to reveiw it. All they had to do was review it in the first place to see that it is not spam.

While they wait to reveiw it, they stated that it wouyld be locked from view and that I could not post.

Has anyone ever heard of this before and how does one's blog get tagged spam - when it is clearly not?

This is the risk of not having your own domain and hosting, they can shut you down whenever they feel like it and without any warning.I have heard this happen to lots of marketers.The only thing you can do now is to invest in a domain name and hosting, it is a really good investment.

Hostgator.com offers hosting for $9.95 per month and at GoDaddy.com you can purchase a domain name for $10 per year.

That happened to me once before with blogger and yes it did get unlocked but like the others have said it is better to have at least one main blog that is hosted on a paid server with wordpress so as to avoid this problem.
