Is it only me, or are others out there in the blog-o-sphere getting a bit sick and tired of Blogger and how the various ‘improvements’ made to the software actually make things worse?
After a while of being away from my blogging to concentrate on other things for a while, I was set to return, but have noticed a few recent problems with the software.
Chief amongst these is the inability to subscribe to some blog posts. This means if I leave a comment on someone’s blog, I have to try to remember to revisit that blog post to see there is a response. The old way of being notified by e-mail if a follow-up comment has been subsequently added is no longer available on many blogs. Bizarrely though, this doesn’t happen on all blogs hosted by Blogger. It does happen on my own blog and I have to say this has discouraged me from posting, as my readers will also have this problem.
Does anyone know of a solution to this? If not, I will stay away for a while until it gets fixed. I never thought I would become a Facebook user, but it is so much easier to post stuff on there until Blogger gets its act together and starts solving some of its many problems.
This blog was originally started to record a five month, 21000 mile tour of the US on my Harley-Davidson. I continue to use this blog to record my own motorcycling adventures, wherever they may be, along with my thoughts and opinions about motorcycling generally.
Having devoted most of my adult life to being a ‘company man’, the transition to the next phase of my life away from the construction industry was always going to include some challenges. Planning and then making my dream trip to explore America on my Harley-Davidson proved to be the ideal vehicle for clearing my mind of old ways of thinking and being. I rode 21,475 miles, in 27 US states in four-and-a-half months.
My motorcycling trips have continued, with journeys across much of Europe, New Zealand, North Africa and Cuba.
A few years ago, I set up and now run Tour1, which takes riders on Harley-Davidson Authorised tours across Europe. See www.tour1.co.uk.
I live just north of London in the UK.
