Naturally, AFTER finally ordering my new business cards, with my new blog addresses and having to pay extra to get them on time, or risk having to pay almost 4 times as much in shipping charges if I waited longer - I think I understand what happened with TypePad. Course, it took them taking me back to the "old" version, where I discovered I could do all I wanted to do after all. And it's mostly me finally putting all the pieces of the puzzle together and not their stellar communication skills, but hey, nothing is perfect.
The new changes coincided with me being added as a beta tester for new changes. My understanding in doing so was to test new changes and give them feedback. I responded to the new changes positively in regards to things the average user were not seeing yet. But it got complicated in that I responded negatively to the changes that were rolled out to everyone. I did not know that by being a beta user, I would LOSE features while they ironed things out. And they weren't clear about explaining the things I was complaining about were a result of me being a beta user. Those reasons, as well as my browser taking another generation step back into being obsolete have conspired to add a balding head to my spastic existence. Not pretty.
So. There's that.
I do have to say, tho, that using Blogger is sooooo much easier than TypePad. So much more intuitive, it just makes sense, and soo much less clicking of the damn mouse! You KNOW how exhausting that is, that mouse clicking. I am super pleased and WILL be leaving TypePad for reals. I no dummy - the price of free can't be beat. The ONLY thing they don't have
For the next couple of weeks, I'll be over-lapping posts to both blogs, until I complete the transfer. I'll let you know when I make the final goodbye here. I need to clean this site up a bit cause it'll float in Cyberspace forever and ever, and I can't stand to have my categories in such a mess!
I am feeling somewhat better, but I tire really easy, and am taking it slow so I'll be able to go to Blogher next week. The thing that is helping me be better? The oddest thing ever, but that's another post.
