I have been trying to put up a new blog today but I couldn't get this relatively new and suppose to be better blogger through Google to post my picture's. So after wasting the better part of my day I finally gave it up.
I don't see that much difference in this blogger host and the original one. So why was I forced to move my blog here. I didn't want to move. I was happy where I was, even though Google kept saying this one would be better, I still didn't want to move my blog. I fought it, I resisted it for as long as I could.
They were nice at first. Like the pervert handing out candy to kids.
Transfer to the New Google blog. It's easy. It's better. It has more options. It's more dependable.
But I firmly resisted, until one day I found out it wasn't an option, it was a demand.
I got around it for a long time by having my 'manage posts' bookmarked, one click and it would pop me right where I needed to be to write my post.
I enjoyed by-passing their little demands until one day I was refused access to my own blog.
I felt like I was backed into a corner. I felt violated. Got ya, the pervert said, if you ever want to blog again you have to submit. So of course I did.
They have their occasional glitches just like the first blogger host did. So what is so great, so different?
When I first started using the computer, the Internet provider was 'Sbc' Then they were bought out by 'At&t', who promised that nothing would change. I don't know how your provider works but with Sbc each person that uses the computer has their own (what they called) home page, that you are able to fix , organize or design any way you want it.
I like the way I have mine organized. I don't want to change a thing about it. For me it's perfect.
However for over a week now there has been a message at the top of my home page flashing brightly,We'll be moving you to the all-new AT&T Yahoo! home page soon. Get started and see what's changed now. Oh, no. Here we go again. What kind of tyrants are these. I don't want a new home page and I don't want to see what's new.
What happened to we're not going to change anything.
I like what I have and I don't want to change. I picked it out, not someone else. So I'm mad and I'm dreading it.
My point is this. We buy the computer. We pay for the Internet service, so shouldn't we have a say so in whether we want something or not. Shouldn't it be an option rather than a demand. It's our money so why don't we have a choice.
I'm stubborn when I like something and it's suppose to be mine and I want to keep it I should be able to have that option. What happened to, 'Would you like to change it?'
I don't want someone coming along saying, 'You have to change it'.
I thought I payed for that right. Boy was I wrong.
I guess I shouldn't complain. I never touched a computer until a few years ago. I shed many a tear feeling stupid.
If it wasn't for my daughter and my favorite tech guru, 'DIAMONDKT'
, who I'm sure had many a headache banging his head up against a wall trying to teach me about computers and fixing all of my mess ups , I wouldn't be hear today. Love ya Mr. D.
