I've simply had it with Blogger. I don't know why all of a sudden it's giving me problems, but if there is candidacy for sainthood for those with no patience, I'm top of THAT list! I don't want to fool around with it, given other shortcomings. Right now I'm investigating WordPress out of laziness because Mary uses it for her blog and she can fill me in on any questions I have.
It appears that I can export all my archives from blogger to WordPress, so that's nice. But it may be a few days before I'm up and running again.
I'm a retired American ex-pat. Living with 3 large dogs, 2 hyper-energetic kittens plus a human being somewhere does not qualify me to describe myself as single. All of us live on a 3+ acre finca outside of the pueblo itself.
As with every new stage in my life, I've found new and different things to do. One of them is filming--erratically--what I see of interest around me (and can get the cam corder in time for) and in what little traveling I do. But old joys--reading and gardening--still have their prominent places in my life.
I enjoy most people but am not social--I can go for long periods of time without seeing another human being and not feel a lack. Ergo, 3 dogs, 2 cats, and only one human. The proportion is about right although a little heavy on the human end.
