So, earlier today I logged into Blogger, as I have nearly every day for the past eight years, to be confronted with the new 'improved' Blogger interface, that I was advised will become the Blogger Graphical User Interface within the coming days. The bloody thing is unusable! Apart from being ridiculously time-consuming.
This isn't just fixing something that wasn't broken, it's changing something that works perfectly well, into an inefficient, complicated thing that supposedly posts What You See Is What You Get, but doesn't.
If you try to insert a photo or video between blocks of text it leaves massive gaps underneath. The only way to remove all the gaps is to go back to the original interface - but soon that won't be possible. After having to manually resize and position each photo, come the next post, you have to do it all over again! And as for just inserting a simple link within text, it's a nightmare.
Excuse my language, but fuck it! It takes long enough doing this as it is, without having to jump through hoops, making it a thoroughly unpleasant experience. So kind people at Google, I ask for you to reconsider your decision to completely remove the original interface, and let people still have to option of using it. Otherwise, I'm out of here.
This post will be bumped onto the front the page here for the next few days. Any help from anyone with a direct line to a real person at Google would be most appreciated.
