Frustrated Blogger...

The post mom worked on diligently for today crashed her computer and was lost...I got tired just watching her. She just didn't have it in her to recreate the lost post, so she sent me (Lollie) to find out if she is the only one that wonders...
  • Why didn't auto-save retain any part of the post?
  • Why if you are signed up for blogger draft do some posts come up in the blogger draft post format and some in the standard blogger post format?
  • Why did Blogger remove spell check in the blogger draft version?
  • Why doesn't Blogger let you write/edit text while the pictures are uploading in the blogger draft version?
  • Why is the preview screen so small?
  • What blogging tips/short cuts have you all found useful?
Hopefully mom's fingers and patience will recover by tomorrow.

I am so sorry you lost your post. I'm too new to this to know any of the answers. Had the same thing happen to me on my very second post I ever did way back in Sept. I got frustrated and walked away from the blog until Dec. cause I didn't have anyone to ask how to do any of this. Hope you can find some answers! Your stained glass is beautiful! I have a vent similar to yours... I hung it as "art" in my den. I love the simple and archetectural look of it. Hope your day gets better!

I am so new to blogging that I don't even know what a blogger draft is???? I would visit each and every day to a blog that was dedicated to teaching me how to blog. It has been a long time in this old girls like since I have found something that is as enjoyable to me as this is!
That is one great looking puppie.

I'd love to find a blog tutorial post myself. Yesterday when I checked my blog it had a line across the top that read " You have tagged this blog as having offensive material". What! Its my own blog! Then it went away. Oh , bother. Sorry you lost your post - that would be so frustrating.

I recently discovered Microsoft's Live Writer. IMO it works better then Bloggers editor. Maybe you should take a look at it and try it.
Have a nice weekend!

I think that google has had some problems with blogger lately. I have noticed that my pictures now take forever to load... and I agree the screen for witing the post is way to small... I don't have any fixes, just that I just share some of the same frustrations... sorry!

Well isn't Lollie the sweetest thing ever? Oh my gosh! Wish I could help, Lollie, but I am also a frustrated blogger (computer operator in general) sometimes... I'm lucky I'm able to do as much as I do!... Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage
