Multiple blogs

June 30, 2010

It is now possible to run multiple blogs from a single account on Blot. If you only want to run a single blog, nothing should change except for a new link on your dashboard. This was a stressful feature to add since it involved significantly restructuring the site’s data.

Working out how to fairly charge the user when they add another blog in them middle of a billing period was a little annoying. Stripe offers a proration option but it waits until the next bill before it charges the user. This is bad for cashflow since Blot wouldn’t receive any income from the extra blog for up to a year.

I decided to charge the user immediately for the fraction of a subscription remaining until their next bill. This means that they pay for their new blog, and their billing interval remains the same.
