Blogger and I are not friends anymore :(


Yes, Julz has been busy, but she has also been working on two super long posts with loads of exciting pictures and stories!!!  And this morning when I go to finalize said posts... Well, here is what I find in those spots:

BLOGGER BABY?!  What happened?  What happened between us?  Has anyone ever had any problems with blogger?  I know that Ems always talks about her problems with Wordpress, but blogger seems to always be fine for me!  I mean sure, it takes me waay too long to organize my pictures once I've written my post, and often it won't save (or says it cannot autosave), but it usually pulls thru!!! That is... until now.  Shapoops!

So I wanted to let y'all know, I am SERIOUS about this, I need something fast and efficient to get my stories and pictures up for all of you to see!  I want to move on with my blog and have SO much to tell you all! Ew, I really don't like feeling so behind (on ANYTHING) and I know blogging should be relaxing, fun, and light-hearted/easy going, but I'm totally upset about this and frustrated (as I'm sure YOU ALL ARE WITH ME ALL THE DAMN TIME!)

(PS) What is this Window's Live Writer business I'm hearing so much about these days?  Can us Mac-users (UNITE! rawr!) participate too???  

Y'all know I love you.  Goodness, I can't believe you still read "this"... But I'm so thankful that you do, because honestly and truly, I adore having it and sharing it with you and I adore reading your blogs (like wohh) Free Smiley Face

I WISH that Windows Live Writer worked with Macs, but I haven't found anything so far that says it does! Boo :o(

Just wanted to leave a little comment to say :

"I love you!"

(maybe a bit weird) but that was an absolutely perfect comment you put on my blog. I couldn't agree more. Thanks for reminding me! Now I hope the blogging situation is fixed because I like your insight and mindset!!

There's no Live Writer for Macs... which stinks... but 'we' have Ecto (you can google search it + mac)... it's super cool (and what I use!)

loveofoats said...

awwwwwww - sorry to hear about your blogging issues - i hate when it happens to me!

thx for the sweet comment on my blog :)

Sarah said...

I was getting so excited about this Windows Live Writer when I heard about it too, but it's not for Macs, SAD. hopefully some computer genius will invent something for us too, and soon!

chandra said...

Julz, love, we don't get frustrated with you!! Sometimes technology just sucks... I hate it, and I'm a software developer! LOL

glidingcalm said...

Maybe switch to Wordpress? It's free and you can import all your Blogger entries over!

Julz,
I cannot even find the words to tell you how much your really-well-worded comment meant to me. And oh my goodness, when I said "well-worded" I really mean well-worded! You seriously have a gift with writing! Anyway, thanks so much for defending me.

Ugh, and I'm sorry about your issues with blogger-- blogger can be quite a stubborn guy sometimes!

ashley said...

I'm glad you're back! I'm back, too!

I love your real photos so much better than the word! i don't have any recommendations, but I hope something works out for you soon!

linds said...

Bad blogger! (*smack*) He had better behave now!!! I want to see all your awesome pictures and hear all of your stories! I hope you get something that starts working for you soon. xox

I hope you're having better luck with blogger soon.

You are just adorable and I want to thank you for all the wonderful comments you left on my blog. I feel the same way when I discover a new blog.

A couple of things: Kohlrabi is not like jicama. It's like a turnip, and best prepared boiled like a potato.

Thanks for the tip on the GF burger buns!

OMG I think you actually may be the one person who loves broccoli as much as me!

Danielle said...

You're my ultimate favorite :) so cute. I hope blogger starts cooperating with you, you don't deserve to have a difficult time with such thing. Good luck!

oatmeal said...

Oooh don't you love it when technology screws you over like that? :D Really spits a bit of sunshine on on your day! Hope blogger starts cooperating with you soon! If not...I've been using livejournal and wordpress for a while now, and never had any problems :D

Lauren: You're lucky!! Blogger has always been a stinker for me. But luckily r.shack turned me onto ECTO!! A.MAZING :)

Sweetsandsweats: :) :) :) So glad I could help! As written above, I just found ECTO thanks to r.shack and blogging has become SUCH a pleasure now!

Fitnessista: Yess, I added you! Doi :)

Allison: YES YES YES, I'd love to be added to your blogroll! Wait -- Seriously? Because I never used to like chocolate and now, randomly, I find myself enthralled by its magical powers!

r.shack: You made my life.

Linds: Thanks!

Sarah: ECTO girl! Go gettem!

CHandra: Can you get me free MAC software???? That'd be SO rad :)

Ems: I've def thought about it, but now that I found ECTO, there's no need :)

Twin: Nothing to say but, "thank you." Coming from YOU, that is the best compliment. AND GIRL GET ECTO!

Ash: I'm so glad you're back too sugarbuns :)

Linds: You are so adorable :) (hehe *smack*) Your comment totally made me smile... Man, I feel like I'm being endorsed here, but FO RE-UL, get ecto!

atxvegan: Umm, you are incredible??? I had never even heard of kohlrabi! Fascinating :) Where do you get all of your inspiration!? You are honestly a marvel in that kitchen! And most definitely, I h.e.a.r.t. broccoli and crave it's divine, green, sweetness every day :) (Nothin's better than par-steamed broccoli!) -PS- It's such a shame that people don't steam and eat the spears! I clean them up and DEVOUR them! yum yum yum :)

Danielle: Girl, you know how I feel about you! Adore you and your blog :) So excited for your next two weeks and your next adventure, but so sad at the same time! I'm going to miss that host family of yours! -PS- You should show them your blog... They'd be so touched!

Oatmeal: (No I'm not being paid by) ECTO is amaaaazing. Enough said :)
