Blogging problems

I haven't had a lot of time recently to do any blogging, but have just started again over on my fantasy Blog  . However blogger have been up to their tricks again, a deliberate conspiracy to drive me hopping mad.

Firstly  my dashboard changed from a handy one page with everything visible, to a veritable labyrinth. I have only just found how to access this blog again, the only one being visible was my fantasy blog.

Secondly, my avatar, the chap in the wig (Sanderson Miller the garden architect), has vanished off a number (but not all) of the blogs I follow. I am still officially following them, but the blog owner can't see that.

Thirdly, now when I try and follow (or re-follow) a blog, I have to use my real name rather than Springinsfeld (I would rather remain incognito on the net), and no avatar appears (unless I reload the image). There is no option given to follow privately.

What does it all mean, and why is it happening?

  3. Yeah, me too. It's gmail I think. You should be able to log in with your old email and password, but the avatar you selected might not work all the time. The trouble started when they locked me out for not providing a phone number. Time to start looking elsewhere?

    1. Ah...the phone number could be the key. I can't be bothered to try another host, but it is rather annoying.

  4. I've got used to the blogger changes . . . don't like them, just got used to them! But the new Hotmail/Outlook is proving a real headache, especially when people send me images, and G-Mail seem to be one of the problematical-sender ones!

    1. I think a lot of the problem is I'm an old git who doesn't like change..... but most of these seem completely pointless.

  6. I dread the thought of being locked -out of my Blog...or dread it being changed in some way...the old addage: "If it is NOT broken - don't bother fixing it" comes to mind. Best of fortune with it. Regards. KEV.
