Done With Google Blogger

OK..I'll get it off my chest right up front. Last year, my blog was shut down for over a week during their purging process against spam blogs. I was one of many innocent bloggers caught up in this mess.

The only tech support is a blog where you mainly depend on each other for assistance. There is no contact info what so ever where you can ask why or find a solution.

The past three weeks it has been one issue after another. First I was unable to upload images for 3 days, then I could not 'save' my blog post in draft.

Last week...when viewing my blog only about half the images show up on the computer screen and it is still this way. Apparently for viewers the images are there sometimes and others they are not.

Currently... when I go to 'edit' a previously posted article or a blog draft...the screen has only the HTML text and no way to get to the regular text screen.

If I want to create a new post, like now...there is no way to add links, edit text, or add photos...NO WAY TO EDIT at all.  (this miraculously corrected it's self this evening)

Am I angry? Actually I'm just over it. I'm fed up and I'm done. I guess you just can't expect to get help or resolution of issues from a 'free' service.

I have had two blogs for the last few years. My Google Blog and My FASO Studio Blog...that is integrated into my website.

My FASO Studio Blog has always been the most important as it is a category on the Navigation Bar of my website. It isn't just added to the Navigation is integrated into the website itself. (the two are a unit) Every time I make a new blog post I am updating my website with pages of searchable text....this is pure SEO juice.

I'm not going to remove my Google Blog but will gradually be transferring information to the Studio Blog on my website and I will no longer be updating my Google Blog.


Keeping up two blogs has been a in some ways this is a blessing.

I know many of you follow this blog...and faithfully leave your comments. I hope you will make note of My Studio Blog address and continue with me there.

For future reference...My Studio Blog address is

Thank you for understanding...hope to see you at my new address. I'll keep my eye out for you.

God Bless

Did you tried the WordPress platform? It works very great. I use it too and I'm very satisfy by it.
Btw, you are making very nice drawings ;)
