A while ago, google bought out blogger. At that point, every time there was an issue, getting said issue resolved became impossible. Don't believe me? Look at some of my older blog posts. You'll see a lack of paragraphing. All of the formatting just disappeared. There are also other ongoing issues, ones I've reported numerous times, with screencaps. And after years of this, not one of the issues has been fixed.
Not. One. Issue. Has. Been. Fixed.
Then, recently, a few of my readers complained because
- they couldn't subscribe
- they couldn't leave a comment
- and I couldn't leave comments to their comments when their comments showed up
Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. Commodity Trading StrategyHint: Those last three words were a link. I could do with some pics to drive the message home? Ummm . . . yeah. I guess the pics I've been posting are stalling my message on the side of the road.
Anyway, the point is, if my readers cannot interact with me and I can't interact with them, it seems it's time for me to pack up and move along. I'll be leaving my book review blog here on blogger for now. Once I am comfortable with the new platform I'll be using for my new blog, I'll see how I feel about migrating my reviews there as well.
So shame on google for not taking care of their customers. Shame on them for making a really great blogging platform a mess. Shame on them for not standing by the people who use and truly want to like their products.
And this will be the first of a gradual migration in my online life away from all things google. It may take me a long time. It took me a long time to reach this decision about blogger but once the decision is made . . .
Tick tick tick . . .
