Is anyone else as frustrated with blogger as I am?...

Why does the formatting become more difficult with each update?  I absolutely hate it that my text won't sit close to my photos!  I don't dare hit 'publish' without previewing, and after each preview the compose window looks like the spacing is crazy.  The little pencil edit icon that used to be at the bottom of a new post is gone, so I'm having to go to the list of posts to select what I'm working on to make an edit.

Does anyone use Wordpress?  I've heard it's harder to learn, but I'm so frustrated with Blogger that I'm getting desperate.



  1. OH I hear you. To find out a month later that on mac my formatting was so off pic's were covering words!!!! But I had no way to see it on my pc. Why we cannot simply create a post in real time format is beyond me.

  2. Interesting. I'm going to have to ask someone with a Mac how mine looks to them.

    Misery loves company...but even so, I'm sorry you're miserable too. :)

  3. I'm a MAC…you look fine!
    If you think blogger is bad…get a load of the new FB!

  4. Hi Terri. Thanks for letting me know. I hardly ever even go to FB anymore. I went on the other night and couldn't deal with the split family from close friends etc. I understand it for people that have tons of 'friends', but it just makes my head hurt.

  5. I'm constantly frustrated with formatting on Blogger. I can't make things look like I want them to at all. Glad to hear others are having trouble too. Maybe it's not just me. ;-)

  6. Hi Kath - I started out on Blogger, used it for a year or so, and moved my blog over to Wordpress about 2.5 years ago. MUCH prefer Wordpress, although it took me a while to get used to it (like anything would really, I guess). I also imported my whole blog into WP which only took minutes, so I didn't lose any of my old posts, which made me very happy.

  7. Hi LB. It's definitely NOT just you!!!

    Thanks so much for letting me know, Caroline. I'm definitely going to look into it when I get some time.

  8. Hi Kathleen!Thanks for visiting my blog. I quit using the blogger format a long time ago. I downloaded windows live writer, and I haven't looked back. You can get it to do what YOU want, and you can add as many of the SAME picture as you want.

    I'm going to stalk your blog now. =-)

  9. Thanks, Michelle. I'll look into Windows live writer too.
