Suddenly I can use blogger again

It's been impossible to get into this blog for months.

I was signed in but when I hit Dashboard the next screen told me that I was not the author of any blogs. When I tried to re-sign in it told me my user name was invalid.

I got on the forum, was given new links but they gave me the same results.

Then, without doing anything, I tried to open the blog again today and, hey presto, the header had changed itself and gave me the options of Design and New Post.

It's the same old problem of successful companies being swallowed up by a handful of massive conglomerates, who then stuff it all around by linking all the companies they've bought and changing the way each one had worked.

Scanning through the blogger forums I see endless complaints about the changes - basically they've changed the very reason the site they bought was a success.

We get endless changes so that the company can link all its acquisitions to maximise usage, and change for change sake. If webmasters didn't keep "improving" things, they'd be out of a job.

So glad to see you back Seabee! I'm a longtime reader (ex-DXB expat) and was perturbed by your lengthy silence.

BTW, on numerous occasions since your return to Oz I have tried without success to comment on your posts. That seems to be sorted now.

I'm with Young Finance Guy - please keep up the good work!
