The palm trees outside our third-storey room window are swaying violently, the river in the distance has miniature white water caps. Though there is no downpour, it's all very monsoony and tropical. Yet I am here to tell you all about my blogspot situation.
Look, it's nearly noon, too hot and windy and potentially rainy to be outside.
I cannot access blogspot blogs. Funnily enough, I can sign into Blogger
to post, fix up my template, and do other nifty things, but I cannot view my own blog. Nor anyone else's.
To counter that frustrating little problem, I signed up for bloglines
which allows me to subscribe to blogs, news sources, etc and when each is updated, this shows up in the bloglines folder.
Normally, I can read an entire post of a blog, but sometimes the posts are cut off midway. There doesn't seem to be a specific reason such as word length. For example, today, or at least in the last 24 hours, L
posted. I could only read the first paragraph. Sniff.
Anyway, I have written to bloglines to find out why this happens.
In the meantime, I am considering switching blog hosts. Some blogs I read are hosted by TypePad
, but you have to pay a small fee. Not interested. For now.
I am now researching WordPress
. In the testimonials section, all the eager WordPress users sounded very very HTML and Java Script savvy. Frighteningly so. A lot were guys speaking in Tongues. I couldn't relate. I just want to be able to upload the odd picture from time to time.
So for the moment, dear readers, I will stick with Blogger. Let it be known that I am reading those of you who have blogspot blogs (when bloglines shows the entire post), but I cannot comment.
Oh gosh, a palm frond just crashed to the ground, three storeys down, along the very path I took this morning to swim in the hotel pool. Like I said, monsoony and tropical. And I'm safely tucked inside my air conditioned hotel room.
Me and the cheeky cockroach and the two skittish gekkos.
