It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Blogger Problems

So all the time I have had these blogs, it has been ridiculously easy to manage them .. write and publish, post photos, read comments, easy peasy.

Suddenly, thanks to whatever ... I lost the blog . I found the blog. It had no content. I managed to find bits and pieces and sat here way too long and obsessed over how to make it all The Way It Was.

After hours of obsessing over it and hoping I did not ruin everything else on my computer, I got my Blogger back.
Then there were the hours of getting some things back where they belonged and or removing things that were lost but left a big blank spot ..don't ask.

By the end of the day, yesterday, I had my blogs although my favorites list is a whole other ordeal.

This morning I read the Times then clicked on my Blog and it was gone again.

So I am here right now. With limitations ... I still can't do the easy things I was able to do , just days ago !

So let's hope Blogger gets its act together and I can have my Blog back the way it was.
I need stability in my life lol ....same ole blog, same ole blogger, happy cats ... you know what I mean?

I have to tell you that we both follow Going Gently and I noticed your comment about never stopping blogging. I am sooo glad to read that. :-) I have been following you here and on Fodor's since 2000. A friend asked me the other day "how is that friend from Fodor's?" I know we aren't friends IRL or even in cyberlife (I am too much a lurker) but I do keep track of my favorite bloggers. Take care.

I will move ... find a new place to complain about lol

Miraculously whilst I was reading this post all of the blogs you follow suddenly reappeared on your side bar. Hope that it stays this way for you, and you are now able to blog to your hearts content.

I notice that, when I hit "publish my comment" in the last few days, the computer just sits there and "thinks" for a while before finally doing it. I've learned to be patient :)

I want to yell at the cont”Stop thinking about it and Just Do It!!
Can you tell I am not a very patient person? LOL

I've noticed the same thing when I try to comment on Going Gently. It's like Blogger is being judgmental about what I'm saying. This is why I'm glad I started blogging with Wordpress ten years ago. Can't remember any problems with them. Watch, tomorrow my blog will be gone. :)
