Uploading Yes ! but far too slow ! why can't it be like before

Just thought I'd try uploading today, it's not the same is it? it's taking ages to upload just one photo.  Blogger isn't very good anymore. just going to try and upload to my Craft blog now as that wasn't working at all the last time I tried. Soo frustrating.

I agree. I find that it is not only slow, but unreliable. It sometimes takes 3 or 4 attempts. I initially thought this was some sort of compatibility issue between my (new) laptop PC, the Windows7 OS loaded on it, Internet Explorer and Google's Blogger, but it seems to affect most users, so it is probably nothing to do with my own setup. Do you use Internet Explorer, Maureen? I wouldn't be surprised to find that Google was deliberately trying to make their Blogger product incompatible with IE, one of their rivals' products!

Hi Mark, good to hear from you and I hope you are well.
I totally agree with you I also think blogger is trying to force people over to google chrome ! And yes I do use IE although my nephew is always telling me to change to chrome. He personally hates IE and I'm talking about a grown man not a teenager.
Having said that teenagers know better than us most of the time when it comes to the Internet ! So do some 5 year olds Ha Ha !
Anyway my craft blog has been amazing today ! It shouldn't be any difference between that blog and this as both are blogger. Just recently though it wouldn't even let me do a post leave alone upload photos ! So today I was very impressed.

Lets hope it all gets sorted soon, or I'm off to Wordpress like a lot of others.

Sorry to hear you're having problems. I've been on Wordpress from the start so can't comment on the Blogger performance. But I've been happy with WP in the 3 years I've been using it.

Hi Damo, good to hear you recommend Wordpress as I may be deflecting from blogger . It's been a real pain recently not being able to upload photos as that's half the fun . I will wait and see if the problems are properly resolved.

Hello Maureen, So sorry you are having trouble with Blogger. I haven't had a problem, but I must say I like Wordpress blogs, and if I knew what I was doing I might switch.
Think spring!! P. x

The trouble is - when blogger works really well, I love it, but it's becoming unreliable. When I want to write a blogpost I don't want to have to wait up to a week for it to happen! But it's good to get back into blogging isn't it Maureen?
Lovely pictures as ever!
