Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
I've seen a number of you complain about what a pain new blogger is. Now I've experienced the pain myself.
After Penelope wrote her post describing the horror of being taught to sit, Favorite Young Man found a song that he was sure Penelope would like.
I tried to write a post and present to all of you, my dear ones, A SONG FOR PENELOPE. I never finished the post. That's why you haven't seen it.
I couldn't embed the link to the video of the song. I looked up multiple answers to the question How do I embed a video with new blogger?
The answers weren't complicated. If I recall correctly, the method for embedding a video hasn't changed. It was the outcome that was different and left me irritated.
I clicked on Insert video at the top of this post. Then I found the video. No problem so far. Then I copied the link to embed the video and pasted it in my post while in html.
All I got was an image of the video with no ability to play the song.
I struggled for what seemed to be forever to get the video to work in my post. I finally gave up and went to bed in a bad mood.
With old blogger, I added videos to my posts with no problem.
If you know something magical I can do so I can add videos to my posts again, then please tell me. Please, my darlings. I'm frustrated every time I use new blogger.
For a while, I could go back to old blogger. No more. Old blogger is gone, gone, gone. The reason for that, I think, is that so many of us became comfortable with old blogger. When you learn how to do something and it works well, don't you think it gets taken away to make you crazy?
I've had some other problems with new blogger, too.
Are you fine with new blogger or do you have a complaint about it to share?
Infinities of love,
