It’s Too Late Blogger … Never Look Back
As a result of our insurrection it seems that Google Blogger has (finally) realized their mistake causing some bloggers to lament making the switch over to Wordpress. Oh well, it was all for the best anyway. The simple fact is Wordpress is better.
Background: Blogger removed our ability to leave a URL address with comments. Instead we were forced to implement OpenID which is inconsistent at best, already adding to the nuisance factor trying to leave comments. But now Google has (re)enabled a URL field below our Nickname.
When Google states “We Blog, You Listen,” they should add “And We Fail to Think Ahead and Don’t Know How to Communicate.” The way they went about the change, with no concern for its implications in the blogging community and no warning, is deplorable for such a large corporation.
This episode is a good example of the way Google operates. It acts autonomously as if it has no beholding to us (except its shareholders) and can do what it will. A big, faceless corporation where we can’t even get a hold of a real person for support, as opposed to Wordpress which is made by users for users.
So all I can say is sorry Blogger but it’s too late now and there’s no turning back, with no regrets. You blew it big time, and thanks for the boost to make the move over to Wordpress. I should have done it a long time ago.
