Why I Dislike Blogger

One of these days, I will take the time to move this blog to another site because I loathe Blogger. I can spend interminable hours trying to get the page to look the way I want, but Blogger will not submit to my wishes. Look to the right sidebar. You'll notice under the "About Me" section that some of the type is a nice, readable aqua while around it is navy type that doesn't show up against the charcoal background. I have just spent a half hour trying to get it all the same. (Later note: I just tried again, succeeding in part, but the Scripture remains navy. One can always hope that it will work on another day . . .)

Further, it leaves large, gaping spaces between paragraphs, spaces that cannot be deleted. What I'm left with is an amateurish blog. For that, I apologize to you, dear reader.

Are you considering starting a blog? I've heard good reports from some Wordpress people.


  1. Hey Sharon, I used to have big spaces between my paragraphs, too until I realized I should be writing my post in the EDIT mode. Anything you do in EDIT will show up exactly as you have it.

    On the other hand, if you're drafting your post in COMPOSE, it will be potluck.

    To further confuse you, whenever you go into COMPOSE to add photos, etc, the EDIT MODE will add all kinds of html coding. Just ignore it.

    Whatever you see in the REVIEW will be true as well.

    Of course if you know all this, I wish you well.

    Anita Mae.

  2. Thank you, Anita!

    I'm so thrilled that you posted that as a comment here. Now I have it for easy reference the next time I'm about to pull out my hair. I'm sure it will help others maintain their sanity, too.

    Write on!

    Because of Christ,

  3. Anita Mae, I'll bet you use both names. Please forgive me for omitting the "Mae" in my first response.
