Werdy Wensday

We should mention that we have been having some real problems with Feedly the past 2 weeks.   On Firefox, it just shows us a blank page and we can't make it open our list.  On Safari, it shows us our list but makes us jump through hoops to visit our friends and get it to realize we have.  We can edit it individually each time, but it is driving us up a tree... 

TBT is trying to figure out what the problem is but hes pretty stoopid sometimes and it takes him a while ta solve stuff.  

New Blogger is also driving us nutsie.  It is so much less great than before.  Part is so counter-intuitive (like only one return key hit for a paragraph) which will eventually ruin his (already poor typing) in The Rest Of The Universe.  And New Blogger always makes our first pic left-indended and forces the text in "wrong places", makes it harder to adjust size, and makes it harder to move pics around if they get out of order, and wants to make text "links" and stuff like that.

Don't even ASK about "labels".  Apparently, you don't click where you think you should. 

He is looking at other blog sites, but doesn't want to leave Blogger. 

If anyone has solved these problems, let us know.  Meanwhile, TBT will thrash around wildly...

And if that 2-run paragraph spacing doesn't stop, he will utterly lose his mind.  Well, so he says.  We think it is gone anyway.


SOLVED FIREFOX!  We left it.  Being stuck in unending beta versions (which we couldn't get out of) was like butt-scootching on harsh sandpaper, ya know?  TBT finally got bookmarks into Safari and it is working great.  And we (somehow) even got some old lost bookmarks back.  Firefox will be deleted.  (bye-bye)...  New Blogger is STILL driving us nutsie though.


On the other paw, what is a post without pictures of US?  

We are relaxing.

Laz is probably down in the basement hunting for skinks.


  1. Yes, new blogger makes *her* get all stressed out too...and the new WordPress is not much improved with its changes either. Why on earth they have to go and change what is good is beyond me...I don't seem to have troubles with FF, except for 15&Meowing's blog...not sure why...

    You kitties are a lot more chill and relaxed that us peeps, MOL!!

  2. Have you tried or to keep track of the blogs you follow? Feedly is still working for us, but we wouldn't hesitate to jump ship in a heartbeat if it caused us troubles.

  3. It has taken us a while to get things done in Blogger, but it is getting easier, but old Blogger was way easier!

  4. Hey you guys - how can you relax when TBT is sitting in front of the computer losing his mind? At the very least you could be awake and helping him to look for it.

  5. I am glad you have got Feedly sorted. I gave up on Firefox long ago and use Chrome instead. I also use Edge occasionally, but don't really like it.
    I am getting used to new Blogger now apart from searching through old posts for my flashbacks.
    Old blogger had 26 to a page and I knew which page I wanted, easy. Now I have to wait for endless posts to load to find the one I want.
    I am taking posts from the original blog so only have about 650 to scroll through. When I get to the current blog there are over 2000 and I know it will drive me nuts!
    If you right click your photo you will get the little settings wheel. Click what size you want your photo then adjust. I change mine from medium to large which is about the normal size I use.
    I haven't had a problem with photo or text placement but that could be down to the browser used.

  6. Yikes, those problems like that drive us crazy too, good luck!

  7. Yeah, New Blogger stinks on ice.

  8. The new blogger is driving us nuts, too! We hate it!

  9. Glad TBT figured it out. Blog and computer problems are so frustrating.

  10. I love your description 'butt-scootching on harsh sandpaper'! That can describe most technical problems - MOL! Happy National Cat Daddy Day and Happy National Cat Day!


We're always glad to hear from our friends...
