Blogger Schlogger

In the nearly three years that I’ve been blogging I haven’t had any issues with Blogger. Until now. I very much want to change my profile picture but I can’t. Blogger won’t let me. And when you have a problem can you just shoot of an email and ask what to do? No! You get directed and redirected and redirected some more and it’s making me none too happy!!

I’m thinking of changing to WordPress.

Thoughts? Comments? Commiserations?

    I’ve had several issues with Blogger and still do. For instance when you upload new pictures it adds a ton of spaces that you have to fix after each photo! So frustrating and tedious.I signed up ford WordPress but didn’t like the format. I’ve though about switching over though… Another food site that has a really nice design – This one is free but there are several different price options that go from low to high.I think I may stick with blogger for now. I am saving up for a blog design (by a professional who is incredible) and she uses the blogger site. So who knows…

    Hmmm. Jen, I just changed mine to see what happened, and it went right through, no hitch. Are you using a picture from your computer?

    I ditched blogger a little over a year ago. I had lots of issues with photo uploads failing. I love wordpress. Haven’t had any problems since.

    I’ve found myself frustrated many times with blogger, but being a nearly-computer-illiterate person, I’ll tough it out. I’d hate to have to learn a new program. BUT, just make sure I can find you. 🙂

    I’m sure I won’t be going anywhere any time soon. But the problem with my profile picture is that it’s an animated gif. NOW I know Blogger has problems with it, but I don’t know how to fix it!

    Animated gif? I think Blogger hates ’em. I have envied C2’s dancing snoopys for years. Can’t get them to dance on my blog.I put up a wordpress once and thought I would cry. I like easy and it didn’t feel easy – again that was a few years ago so maybe it’s plug and play now. You can always do up a test blog and see what happens.Testing is fun ;)Cindys

    Hmmm…I wonder what’s going on.I’ve had a few small issues here and there with Blogger, but it’s mostly been ok.If you move this blog, you better let ME know about it. LOL

    I started off with wordpress and hated it. It was not visual enough for me. I love typead, can’t say enough about it 🙂
