That’s it. I’ve officially had it with blogger. I’ll still use it when I get the urge, but really! Is it too much to ask to just post a thing? Apparently.
Blogger is perpetually down and there are perpetually engineers working on stuff. Too bad I’m not an engineer, because Google needs to hire more of them.
Next is this business with the beta version. I can’t post without Blogger trying to get me to switch. But once I switch, I can’t switch back. I’ve been okay with the way the old version has worked up until this point, maybe I don’t want to switch. And finally, apparently beta members can not leave comments on blogs that have not switched over unless anonymous comments are allowed.
Been to the anonymous side and had enough of that nonsense, even though I feel bad that WordPress bloggers can’t comment without a Blogger ID. Which is why having a mirror site works and makes sense for me. Plus it gives me extra space for when I have a lot to say, which happens sometimes. I have, in the past, strung 3 different blogs together to tell one story.
And there are times when 3 is barely enough. So guess what? I’ll give you two guesses as to what I’ve just rolled out.
Yep. Just what you and I need; another blog. The thing is, I need a more reliable place for my Unsolicited Advice because Blogger insists on crapping out regularly. And then there is that archiving thing, when one decides to go down.
I know, I complain about Blogger an awful lot and it is free, after all. But so far WordPress has been a better and more reliable partner. Anyone who has ever put valuable time into a post to have it disappear at the whims of Blogger knows what I’m talking about.
So give a nice, warm welcome to Unsolicited Advice: The WordPress Version.
