I have in the past made my feelings known about change that is the answer to the question no one was asking. I also dislike a system that is so monetarily driven, that forces change and expense. Google Blogger has foisted a new Blogger interface on users that isn’t wanted by many. I do not allow any advertising on the blog anyway so in that sense am not playing the ‘let’s make Google richer by plastering aggressive ads all over each post’.
I wrote to Google asking that the older legacy blogger be retained. Not only did they not answer but have now removed the legacy option completely. My ageing browser has also been shut out of the system, not because it doesn’t work but they have chosen to institute a block. I can’t do that without buying a new computer and they aren’t offering to pay. I don’t throw out things that work perfectly. I may have to anyway, the system at large forcing me.
My philosophy is the world has created a treadmill that we are subtly bullied into running on. I prefer a simple life, being satisfied with enough. I have been sharing this blog at a cost to my time but of no cost to the user. A love of money dehumanises and ultimately destroys whatever has been created. Greed isn’t great.
Enough of that. If you wish to contact Google Blogger regarding blocking my older browser, please do They don’t have to do it. Either way, all the best.Ray.
