Changes coming soon

Well, I’ve gotten a bit fed up with my blogging lately. No, I’m not running out of things to comment upon. My experiences here at Blogger are, frankly, leaving me a little flat. I know you get what you pay for, and all, and it is a free service. But they’ve never been really good at actually answering questions. The interface, while servicable, doesn’t offer many of the features other blogging platforms do. I don’t see that changing any time soon.

Then there’s the matter of the blog authoring software I’m using. I switched over to Anconia’s RocketPost almost 2 months ago. At first, it was stellar. The company then put out an update to the program and it’s been all downhill since. The program crashes repeatedly. It does so between each and every post I try to publish and, after this morning’s “update” from Anconia, it actually crashes whenever I try to put a hyperlink in the post text on the 1st try. I’ve tried to contact their tech support - reachable only via a web form on their site - and have received no reply after 4 messages. Not the way to keep paying customers, Anconia. In fact, this one’s about ready to take a walk somewhere else.

Bottom line: expect changes here at HoodaThunk? soon. I’ll keep you advised. Assuming I can actually post the notice.
