I am just about sick of Blogspot. I am fed up with having to go back into edit mode to put back the spaces in paragraphs, change font sizes, align pictures and a whole host of other problems that Blogspot seem to have avoided fixing. It used to work fine but the last range of changes have totally f***ed it up.

I am now looking for a replacement. Any ideas would be gratefully received.

It still works for me, but I like to keep things simple. Perhaps I'm not adventurous enough.

Hi Maffi

I too struggle with blogger and usually have to re-publish everything 4 or 5 times before I get the spacing, etc, right. Try Windows Live Writer, comes free as part of the Windows Live Essentials Group - I tried posting a link but not sure if it will work, just search and it will come up. I find it much easier, you easily resize/align pictures, and I find the paragraph spacing is usually spot on. It will talk to your blogspot blog also, so no need to change the address or re-do anything. You can also use it to edit more than one blog (should you wish), and can compose all your posts off-line. Hope this helps.

Ah but it doesnt work for me H.

Yes I do use Livewriter but it doesn't always work the way it should.

I have just written this comment and get the 'Your request could not be processed. Please try again'.

What will now happen is I will click on Post Comment and the preview box will come up then and only then will it allow me to post the comment.

Yes it is an obvious glitch in the system and only takes up a few seconds of my time but over a year and adding all the other glitches of different programs It is costing me a lot of time.
