It must be bad

    Well, I’ve been on Blogger for nine years now, and yes, the new interface is NOT an “improvement” over the old one IMHO, but it’s not that bad, either. I just had to figure out how to make the WYSIWYG interface behave.

  2. Frank W. James Says:

    Since I was blogging for ‘free’ I take exception to software that eliminates my index for labels (even I can’t find some of my older posts) as well as eliminating the paragraph breaks for my older posts. (Style and content are directly affected by the latter.)

    So, Yeah, the new ‘Blogger’ can go do something potentially painful, but physically impossible to itself as far as I’m concerned.

    Additionally, I have yet to find a ‘free’ alternative that doesn’t claim ownership on the stuff I post on their service, so excuse me for feeling that I have a right to retain ownership and copyright protection of the stuff I ‘manufacture’.

    Welcome to the new world of the internet, the free ice cream is coming to an end…

    All The Best,

    Frank,

    If you buy a domain name (it’s like $9 a year), I’ll host you for free. I’d buy the domain for you, but you really would want to retain the ability to point your domain somewhere else if something happened to me (or if you got so big you outgrew my server)

    wizardpc; I’ll have to think about that. My objection to even paying $9/a year is that essentially a writer has now gone over to ‘vanity publishing’, which pretty much indicates his stuff ain’t worth shit. It’s so bad he has to ‘pay’ to give it away…

    All The Best,
    Frank W. James
