So Long, Farewell, Auf wiedersehen, Goodbye

WTF????  I can hear both my Faithful Readers (FR) say not so sotto voce!  But you just said that you were going to start boring us to tears with your silly drivel again.  What exactly is going on?

ME: Well as you may, or may not, know I’m going to be going on a cruise very shortly.

FR: Well yes but what has that got to do with it?  You want us to come down to the quay and catch streamers while the band plays “Nearer My God to Thee”.

ME:  Don’t be smart! No but I didn’t want to travel with too much baggage (that tuxedo for formal night takes up a good deal of room) so I was thinking of just taking my iPad with me and posting on the trip using the Blogger App.

FR:  Okay, it would be nice to hear about those far-away places with strange sounding names but from the sounds of that title you weren’t intending to post anything anyway.

ME: No I was!   That’s why I gave it a trial run to see what I could and couldn’t do – I discovered its been been almost a year and a half since they made any changes to the Blogger App.  So it was pretty much as it had been the last time I used it.  I went in and started to edit a post I had started on the Mac.  I spent well over three hours finding the right words and sequence of photographs.  Very proud of myself I saved it and went off to do something else.

FR:  So when does it appear?

ME:  Someone is looking for a sound smack!  It won’t be because when I opened it on the Mac none of the changes had taken.  I went back to the iPad and same damned thing.  Three hours work lost never to be read by you my Faithful Readers.  I checked what they laughingly call a “support” site and found that the biggest complaint seemed to be that no one ever got back to anyone on their questions or problems.

FR:  Oh!

ME: So as a result I am stamping my little foot, saying “so long, farewell, auf wiedersehn, goodbye” to Blogger and switching over to WordPress.  So bear with me on this okay?  I’m old mature and it may take me a bit of time to get use to their little programming quirks and quarks. And I have to decide if I want to import 8 years worth of posts over to their system.  But keep in mind I’m doing it all for you my faithful readers – both of you.

So if you’re planning to read my blog I suggest you change the bookmark to www.willyorwonthe.wordpress.com. Or you can click on the Bobby below and he’ll take you there and then you can bookmark it.

As he so rightly says:  there’s nothing more to see here.

  1. Got this important message! W's very smart, and I nearly wept at the touch of Sound of Music… for the last B title. And I'm too clumsy to leave B anyway.
