Add me to the list of unhappy bloggers who hate trying to write a blog through Blogger. If you've never used Live Writer, you have no idea how much better it is.
Blogger really is cumbersome and if Live Writer doesn't come back up, I'm not sure I'll be blogging as often either. Of course, since we're stuck in Tampa caring for my Mother, we're not doing anything blog worthy anyway.
When we first started camping years ago, I started writing a journal and included photos in the journal. I enjoyed looking back on our camping trips, and it was easy and fast.
I still like to journal our trips so that I can go back and refresh my memory, check what kind of weather we were having, campsites, or places we went. This might be a good option for those of you who mainly want to document your travels. I do not think I will use Word Press. I don't like that platform either, but never say never.
My main issue with Blogger is that it takes so darn long to upload a photo. I never quite know which photos I want to include, or what order, so I choose my photos as the blog progresses. With LW, you select a photo and BAM, it's there. You can write the entire post offline and post it later. You do not need an internet connection.
OK. Now I'm going to add a few pictures to see if anything has changed for the better.
First picture....didn't take too long to load, but I have fast internet here.
Okay, lets try to add more than one at a time.
Tried it. It took way too long to upload 3 pictures so I quit.
NOPE. Not going to do it. If Live Writer doesn't come back, I won't be using Blogger either.
