Blogger Problems

So last night I was trying to work on my Friday post on my ipad and I couldn't see it. This has happened before since the new blogger took over. It seems like I have to buy an app in order to blog from an ipad. I refuse to spend money on something that should be free. This sounds like a conspiracy to me. Plus now I've lost the entire blog entry. Super bad.

I'm also trying to figure out how to create a page to put all my recipes on with links. I'd like to gather enough of them and make it easy to find so I can join Secret Recipe Club. I've got a lot of recipes to go but I figure if I start now organizing it will be easier. I also could just put a keyword search button on the blog but I've tried to add the gadget and it won't work.

I use Google Chrome for my browser at work and Mobile Safari for the ipad.

If anyone has guidance, please let me know.


  1. Good luck. I understand a lot of people are having problems with the new blogger. It still works the same for me but I am not using an app, iPad or iPhone, just doing the same 'ol from my laptop.

    I agree Blogger should remain free for what it's original intents and purposes were, but since the app is a new type of offering since Blogger came into existence several years ago I don't see a problem with paying for the app to blog from other mediums. It seems a lot of apps cost for the convenience to use them on iPads/Phones.

    i don't like that Blogger has started to charge for additional storage for pictures to enable you to post them. i have been blogging since 2005 and this is the first I have heard of the Picassa file, limits and that my pics are stored there. I can't even find the file to delete some of them to go back under a limit I never even knew I had or that I signed up for. I didn't but it doesn't seem to matter to Blogger and they are of absolutely no help. Everyone says it is a small price to pay, but to me it is the principle. I have been posting pics since 2005 and now, suddenly they want money? I think they will end up losing a lot of members over their new changes.

    Good luck with your apps and iPad. I hope they change the rules.

  2. I love my ipad but hate it for blogging including reading blogs! The new blogger form is driving me nuts I hate it! Good luck!

  3. I don't mind the new that I've got it figured out, but like SkippyMom I'm not using an i-anything. I don't know what to tell you about the app. :(

    SkippyMom, I've been blogging since 2001 and most of the time it's been on Blogger. They started the Picassa picture files a few years ago. I've never been warned about paying or anything. I think you have to post a LOT of pictures to have to worry about it.
