New Blogger Format.

What's it all about Blogger?

Was there a good reason for the change?

Why not just iron out the wrinkles in the original.

I am not adverse to change, as long as there is good reason for it. Change for changes sake suggests to me that somebody/somebodies are justifying their position on the workforce.

I have seen it many times in my working life, an office nearly always has too many staff for the workload generated. They have a nice settled relationship so the thinking caps go on and paperwork is issued, new systems are introduced etc. The staus quo remains intact.

Enough of this.

What I dropped in for was to let you know that I am on target. 80 blocks sewn and cut to size, 20 more with the first 3 strips attached.

I have even tidied the desk top before getting stuck in to the next round of sewing. That will be later in the day as I have the Bichons from 11:30, their mum has her first treatment session today. My thoughts will be with her, I know how scared she is and wish that I could travel with her but that is not possible.

I caught a glimpse of Boris scuttling along the pavement sans mask on the news this morning. Apparently Joe public cannot understand the rule of 6 or the wearing of masks in public. I wonder why.

I am happy that the rain has dried up for a spell, I want to get into the garden later, 5 dogs stuck indoors is a recipe for madness and mayhem. They have a plethora of outdoor toys to race around with and "chase me round the apple trees" is a popular game. I sit on the patio and cheer them on over my current sock knitting.

Revi has just thrown all the cushions off the other sofa and has squeezed herself next to me. She may be big but she is still a puppy, with all the need for close contact that all puppies have at times.

The clock is ticking and I have a few chores to attend to before I go to get the Bichons.

Keep safe.

PS You may have gathered that I am not a fan of the new style blogger. I expect that it will grow on me. Which is more than I can say for the new Ravelry.


  1. I get cross with the comments we are confused, listen to what is said and obey, it's not hard, I think too many people twist what is said to suit them or act daft to keep things the way they want them. People with common sense know what needs to be done, it's not perfect but we have all now seen what this virus can do unchecked. I'm again with you on the upgrades, why just why?

    1. I now have another new password to remember. I heard somebody say that the new restriction is not fair. That's because their are so many clowns around that it is now a circus.

  2. Your bichons sound adorable!! Great company I would say:-) I'd say you and a lot of people are not happy with the New Blogger included!! I believe the change was because they needed to adapt and improve "things" for mobile phone use. Keep well Amanda x

  3. Just got lo0cked out of blogger and had to do the New password dance. I do not like it at all.

  4. Haven't been locked out yet, but I still haven't figured out how to size the photos so they don't fill the page.

    God bless.

    1. click on the photo and there is a + or - to click on.

    2. I've given the new blogger a go now after going back to the old version several times and I'm much happier with it after they've made some changes to the first version.

    3. I expect that we will all have to get used to it. On my part it is just laziness, I can think of far better things to do than find out how it works.


I love to read comments so take the plunge and join the conversation.
