If it ain't busted why fix it?

Dearest Blogger,

I love you for introducing me to the wonderful world of blogging and for giving me a free template with nobs on to personalise my blog.

But what’s all this “new editor" about then?

I tried scheduling a post in advance but instead blogger just published it and to add insult to injury, published with the scheduled date and time on it.

It also refuses to preview my post.

I have since reverted to the old editor option but I understand you are about to remove this in place of this horrid new editor.

But If it ain’t busted why fix it?

Charlie says: I hope your next letter will be to Father Christmas. I want more treats. I've been a good kitty alllllll year.

Me and Charlie are sending purrs and hugs to lovely Perry of Noir's Nook. Perry is Tommy's special gift from her dad. Perry also gave Tommy ringworm!That's love for ya! :-)

Have a terrific weekend everyone!

Full empathy!
Just as I get used to something technical it goes and gets fancy on me!
Hang in there!

Emma said...

I tried that new editor.
It's a load of rubbish, I went back to the old one...Em x

ABBY said...

Oh dear is Blogger changing sometime again! Mom hates changes....

Hi Charlie we hope you have a great weekend.

Hello...I am happy you found Daisy's mobile vet visit to be very interesting and fun! I thought it was really wonderful to have the vet come to our house instead of the other way around.
I know what you mean when you say that Blogger has caused problems for you and I wonder sometimes if I should switch to Wordpress but I heard it was very difficult to navigate!

Deborah said...

OMC Charlie, you are a riot! You make laugh out loud at my computer!!
Have a fantastic weekend!

Clarissa Draper said...

Yeah, I can't seem to add photos and I don't know why. It's driving me batty to have to enter the html code everytime I post a pic.


Ann said...

Oh NO! Charlie, it is too soon for Santa letters.

Blogger's updates have me in a tizzy. I agree if it's not broke why why why confuse me!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Note to self - don't try the new editor.
Thanks for the heads up, Charlie!

Brian said...

We've been purring for sweet Perry too. I saw a comment way down on the comment list that said Mom was bring him home, hope that's good. I don't use blogger to do my posts so I didn't know there was a new editor. I use Windows Live Writer, much better.

Hey Charlie, you've been extra good so you should get lots of treats!

Reenie said...

Grr... I have not tried the new editor yet. I have a feeling I won't like that AT ALL!

Seriously, why fix it if it's not broken? Hey Blogger, please answer that!


Katnip Lounge said...

GAH! Blogger has been giving me fits, too. It must be designed by men. What's the female version of misogynous? Misandronous?
I think the new editor sux.
And the Cats are calling it "dogger", the ultimate insult.

Jackee said...

It IS annoying how much they mess with it. I was having trouble with preview last night too. The colors, margins, and text font went haywire.

Hopefully they'll "fix" this version soon too, eh?! :o)

Have a great day, Charlie and Jenn!!

lupie said...

New editor?
Is there a new editor?
Hmmmmm ...
I missed it somehow?
Gotta check it out.
Till then - We love you Jenn and Charlie!

The Chair Speaks said...

Hey Charlie, in this picture you look like you have an extra pair of eyes between your ears and your real eyes! :)

Kea said...

Hmm, I've not had a problem scheduling posts, or in using the new editor, though sometimes there *are* glitches.

Beats me why the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" is so often ignored, though!

BTW, your spider story was funny--in an "I'm freaking out" way. LOL. That recently happened to a co-worker--she woke up in the middle of the night with a spider on her FACE. She's not a spider person either.

I hate it when Blogger doesn't work properly. Sometimes the new Blogger works really well for me but it had a sudden hiccup and wouldn't load images for a while. I hope they get it all sorted before it becomes the only one.

Donna Hosie said...

I really don't want to tempt fate by saying this, but I'm not having any problems with Blogger. I know a lot of people are though, especially with uploading images.

*pats Blogger on the head*

Play nice now.

Simon Kewin said...

There's a new editor? I can't see a new editor! Why didn't they tell me there was a new editor? I love new things!

Blogger glitches are a pain though. At least it's stopped timing out as it did a lot a few weeks ago.

Claudia said...

Dear Old Kitty & Charlie,
That darn posting feature. That's why I don't schedule my posts, not even when I'm traveling. Some bloggers find it helpful, and it could be, but I rather do it on the day I want to publish it. Ah Charlie, you're so laid back I doubt this bothers at all.
Have a lovely weekend!

Marg said...

Well for once I am glad I don't do blogger. I hate changes too. I am at the moment trying to get used to a different browser.
Charlie, we sure hope that Mom writes Father Christmas for you. You certainly deserve extra treats.
Have a great Saturday.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Have just done a comment and when I did the word verification and pressed publish your comment - a message 503 came up said there was an error and it vanished and don't know if it will appear or not. So here goes again - I used to put a few blogs on and post date them when I first started to blog and it worked ok for a while and then it just posted them at will. So now I jot down ideas and mark where pictures are to come from and have to post them each day which is a pain. I haven't see anything about a new editor and from some of your comments I hope I don't!!
Charlie you are looking very handsome today - hope you have a lovely day in the sunshine.

joanne fox said...

Oh dear - now you have me worried about the new editor! I have enough trouble with previewing, and either I lose all the spacing or end up with massive gaps between paragraphs. I'm sure there is something I'm doing wrong, but I can't yet figure out what!

Manzanita said...

Even when I get up really really early, your post is written and i think Kitty gets up early but then I remember I'm on the other side of Greenwich or whatever and Mountain Time, too.
Good weekend to you and the C.

KarenG said...

Haven't noticed a new editor as I'm having so much fun with the new stats feature.

Bibliophile By the Sea said...

Such a pretty cat. I just found your blog through the Pet Hop!

HubbleSpacePaws said...

Here, here!! I dislike the new editor, too, and quickly reverted to the old. I'm usually pretty patient, but had sooooo many problems. Perhaps if we all protested in writing they'd leave the old editor or fix the new one?!

Theresa Milstein said...

I'm always reluctant to try any new features that Blogger offers and this is exactly why. It should be easier - not harder.

I still can't figure out how to put a different picture at the top of my blog that doesn't come out 1" by 1".

At least Charlie looks relaxed and as regal as ever. It's not bothering him a bit!

Patsy said...

I hate the constant changes too. It's nearly as annoying as when the supermarkets move everything around and I end up buying bath sponges instead of bread.

Anonymous said...

We don't like new editor either and have reverted to old editor for however long he lasts.

Rahma Krambo said...

New editor? Why didn't they tell me? Mine looks the same, so maybe they missed me!

Jenny Woolf said...

I can't stand it when they change things. If it was up to me, mind you, I think we'd still be scratching things on wall with sticks...

Good luck, and if enough people don'tchange maybe they won't remove the old editor.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I do not like the new Blogger editor either! I had the hardest time putting my photos in my post last night. It took so long and I had to do about 5 steps for each photo. :(

I hope they get lots of complaints and revise the editor back to the old way!
