Google Bought Blogger, and Now It Sucks
Far be it from my to claim that the old Blogger was bug-free, but here's how it's working, ever since I got a gmail invite. The Blogger log-in page instantly de-recognized my Yahoo!mail address, even before I set up my new gmail account. After I set up my gmail account--in my real name, which was the whole point of getting the new email address--the Blogger account automatically set the login name to this real name. Annoying enough, but since the displayed username and email were still pseudonymous, I figured that "only" Google would have total control over my internet activities.
Here's the extra-annoying part: since I have this new sort of Google-tagged Blogger account, every single time I try to get into Blogger, I get shunted over to the Blogger Beta login page, am forced to try to "switch over" into a Google-supported Blogger account, have to sign their bloody "Terms and Conditions," am told that "they are unable to fulfill my request to switch over at this time," and THEN I can get into my old Blogger account.
I think I've agreed to their terms and conditions about four times by now; the more I have to agree to them, the less willing I'm getting to abide by them. Way to chase customers away, Google-owned Blogger Beta.
