I'd hoped to have this blog all set by now. But, no. For some unfathomable reason Blogger makes changing the primary email on a blog a nightmare. I thought I'd figured it out, read the Help forum posts, set up my secondary blog authors for backup, etc. Then my daughter, who's pretty computer savvy, and I tackled the project.
Since we read that you will lose all your photos from Picasa if you transfer the blog administrator email, we set up a Gmail account and transferred all the photos first. Then we meticulously followed the many steps indicated, using different computers and browsers as instructed.
In the end, I have this blog, which confusedly has two contributors--me here and me on the old version. This new one didn't bring my profile or reader list of 317 blogs I follow, but it's on the old one. I had to write a new profile for this one.
I have no idea what's going on and am frustrated beyond anything I can really explain. I don't think I've ever run across anything this convoluted in my life.
Anyway, just trying to change an email because I moved has ended up costing days of my time, and I still don't know if this blog will go poof when I turn my back.
As I promised before I will find you all if I have to start over. Right now, I think I'll go watch a movie and chill.
