Don't Merge with Google Blog (or whatever they call it)

I made a big mistake, I think. I merged my blog with the beta version of google blog or whatever it's called. Now, I have to use my google password to leave comments on other blogs. I have to use my blogspot password to login to blogger. Then it tells me I have to login to google blogs to post an entry.

It's also been very flaky. Sometimes when I submit an entry, it hangs my browser. I haven't been able to upload photos very reliably either.

Don't merge. If you disagree, please let me know what I'm missing. I'm open minded about the change, but it has only made blogging more difficult for me so far.

The photo is a plane flying over my neighborhood. I took the photo with the creepcam. Yeah.

All I know is that I still have my original blogspot account (though I actually use wordpress) and every time I leave a comment on blogspot, I have to sign in all over again. That was not the way it used to be. Must be this merge thing? Tres annoying!

I still haven't taken the "plunge."

Now I'm even more leery.

Thanks for the warning, I was about to do it.

I did a bit of reading on a betablogger for dummies website and on the Google Groups betablogger list and didn't find anything to help.

However, I found a few messages that imply we will all have to convert eventually. I could not confirm this though.
