Dear John Blogger

Dear Blogger,
I'm not sure I know what what happened, I don't understand why you no longer love me? Was it something I said? Why won't you allow me to upload my pictures any longer. When did it all go so wrong?
Many are the long nights that we have been up late, way into wee hours of the night, trying to resolve the issues that are standing between us. Still, I'm afraid no progress has been made. I'm not sure that this relationship can be saved.
It has been working so well between us before, so why isn't it working now? Exactly what does it mean when you say that: permission is denied? My permission? or Your permission? Why? What changed? and What can I do to make it work?
I've tried to change. I've reset the settings for security and privacy for you. I even switched to Beta for you and still nothing. Nothing I do is enough for you.
Fine, I'm not very good at letting go of things like this, but I'm not going to allow this thing between us to hold me back any longer. ( I have been threatened bodily harm by Lisa)
I don't need you. I never needed you. If the truth be told, ours was really only a relationship of convenience anyway. I have Flicker. Flicker still loves me. Flicker puts out for me. Flicker has never failed to perform. It didn't have to be this way, but unless you're at least willing to meet me half way I'm afraid that this is how it has to be.
Love Cordially, Kelle

Hi, Kelle - I'm Shelly from the knitting group. I had no idea you were working on a Forest Path! I so want to see it in person - maybe the Wednesday after next? I've been thinking about making one myself. Yours is beautiful.

Brilliant letter! Free yourself...

Chris pointed me to you - I'm having the same problem w/Blogger. I'm getting ready to dump him for typepad. What a great letter!

Your Forest Path Stoel is amazing.

I think you probably ran out of space. You could try not uploading the photos. Use a link to the flickr photos. I forget how blogger works, since I ditched it, but I think you might be able to click on an image button and put a link in a link slot instead of uploading the photo.

If you decide to come join me at wordpress, I'll help you out. But a warning - use of the limited CSS stylesheet is $15/year.

great letter! I've been with blogger a year now and I swear they're getting worse, not better, and the last few days have been the worst. comments have even quit working on many blogger sites.
