A Major Gripe with Blogspot


Am I the only one who has major problems with the editing functions of Blogspot? It seems that no matter how hard I try, creating a post with images is an exercise in frustration. Even basic text posting is a challenge. I type a paragraph, double space to create a new paragraph, add some photos then check my work with the Preview function only to find that my images are all over the place and my text is scrolling into the spaces between the photos. To add insult to injury, when I tweak everything so it appears somewhat normal in the preview mode and publish the post, the final output doesn't look anything like it did in the preview mode. So what good is a preview if it doesn't give you an accurate image of the final product.

I'm so through with the frustrations of Blogspot that I may look around for an alternate blog host. Then I've got to change all my links and business cards to reflect the new address. Ugh, just the thought of it makes me tired.

Does anyone else use Blogspot? If so, what has your experience been like? Please leave me a comment and let me know. Thanks.
