Why?

Who is the person who thinks they have to keep improving good things?  I tried to read some of my friend's blogs on my reading list tonight and all I could see was a notice that Google wants you to put a + in front of some one's name for some insane reason.  I also noticed that when I try to print a page from my blog it doesn't print... anywhere else I can print just fine. I guess when you use Blogger  anything you post belongs to them now.



I have noticed that you can get your blog pages printed professionally now.  When I first started blogging, I printed the first two years of  my posts, my self, and put them in a notebook.  A nice way of journeying I thought. I guess I will have to try to out think them and maybe write my post in office and print from there before I put it on Blogger... Hey maybe I won't post on Blogger... I always had to remember that others were reading and so I held back on some of the things I wanted to say.  Just use office and print only for my own journal.  I think I like that idea...

When I first got my computer, I was in a new world.  Anything I could think of, I could find.  Now some of the same sites want to charge for obits after a certain length of time.  I even joined up with something that Ancestry.com offered and placed my pictures and information freely and enjoyed sharing with my family.  After a time they wanted me to pay for that site.  I refused and went to take some of my pictures down. They quickly told me that they knew I had "hot linked" a couple of pics.  I laughed at them and still got my pics back.  I hate that they took my information and now it is theirs to pass on to anyone else who pays to use the site.

I will be back to catch up with my blogging friends from time to time.  For now I think I'll be working on making notebooks for my family to enjoy (or not).  I hate change !!

You can always send them to yourself by email. That's what I do. Or, you can type them up in email and highlight/copy/paste them to blogger. That way you always have a copy and can even print from there.

I hate change too.... And I get nervous thinking about others reading my blog sometimes, too. That's why I'm private again. I like the idea of printing them out...strange that they don't allow you to print your own blog posts!!

I'm very frustrated with Google right now - the fact that they are stopping Google reader is so frustrating. I hate change too.

Seems to be everywhere - change is all around us at the moment.

I'll join in the I hate change chorus..especially when it isn't a good change. I blog very little now, mostly because I can't think of any thing to say, but I still love to read my friends blogs.
Leave well enough alone blogger!

Well most of the time I do my posts in Word first and can save them as a doc... that way Word catches most spelling errors - note the word MOST.
But the old original blogger was really so much easier to use. Now, I mostly use live writer which then posts to blogger for me. It allows me to do things the old original blogger used to do.

Funny how so often "progress' ain't!

I just managed to print a page from your blog and one from mine. But copying to Word works better then I don't get 7 pages of all the stuff in the sidebars.
