Rant On

I hate Google blogger.
Hate it. Hate it. Hate it.

This isn't what I blogged about earlier this morning, when I got up at 4:30 am to get my post up before I left for work. In that blog I waxed enthusiastically about my new office. And how I loved being surrounded by all my keeper books, and how I already felt so at home in there, even though I've only been settled in less than a week.

And then Google ate my post. I'd saved it in the drafts folder too, just in case Google did something nasty to me again. (which its been doing repeatedly) Only apparently, once you hit the publish tab it steals the one from the drafts folder too. So once I got out of the big computer freeze and went to look for the blog in my drafts file it was gone. Gone!! A good forty minutes of freaking work, completely gone.

I never had any problems with the old Blogger setup. But this new Google Blogger--it's been nothing but a pain in the butt since I started using it. Half the time it won't recognize my user name or password and won't allow me access to the site. The rest of the time it won't let me open the comments window. Case in point-- Monday and Tuesday I managed to get into the comments section with no problems. The window popped right up. Then Wednesday rolls around and every time I'd try my computer would freeze up on me. Wednesday night I try to access the dashboard to start my blog for the following morning, and the site won't recognise my username or password. Thursday morning I'm suddenly good to go on my username and password, but when I hit publish Google freezes my computer and sneaks off with my post.

Obviously Google Blogger hates me as much as I hate it.

Anyone have any suggestions on how we can get along better? Because I've seriously had it with this new version of blogger.

Theresa, I sympathize with you. Anything that goes wrong with the computer or the Internet is frustrating for me. I hope Word Press at MM works better.

Edie,

I've never had any problems with wordpress. In fact, blogger is trying to force me to update TTime to Google. Which I've been refusing to do. But now they won't even let me post to the old TTime blogger dashboard. If I want to keep Ttime I'll have to change over.

I'm seriously going to looking into moving it to a wordpress site instead.
