Goodbye Blogger

Monday, 13 July 2020
Hello Dear Reader,

Now I wouldn't normally throw the baby out with the bathwater BUT, I have lost all faith in the new interface Blogger has decided to adopt, I haven't the patience or the time for this nonsense. As my time is very limited as are my computer skills I can't waste anymore of my precious time mucking around with this very difficult to navigate, new interface that has been forced on me.

It was either adopt the new format or waste so much time and lose followers using the old format which I was adept at using, even uploading long videos was easy. Not now, the new interface won't let me use Vimeo or insert any video over 1 minute, what a crying shame. Even uploading photos is a chore, taking much longer than it normally did. 

I have been researching Wordpress and I think that is the way to go, but I hate leaving nearly 5 years worth of writing almost every day here at Blogger. I will let you know when the new blog is up and running and I want to say a very big thank you to you, Dear Reader, without you I would be talking to myself and where is the fun in that? 

See you on the flip side.

Have a lovely evening,


  1. Ha Ha! As a former blogger I get what you mean by talking to yourself! I look forward to following you on the new wordpress format 😘

  2. Hi Fiona,

    turnip greens or 'cime di rapa' which in Italian translates as turnip tip, are a member of the brassica family. The tips look like small loose heads of broccoli and Italians love this vegie. The tips of the plants comprising young leaves,stems and flowering buds are mainly used in pasta dishes.
    The flavour is quite strong - somewhat bitter and peppery.

    We like this vegie steamed slightly and then sautéed in EV olive oil with garlic, chilli and a little salt. Sometimes I toss cooked pasta and a little of the cooking water through the sautéed vegie for a quick pasta meal.

    Fiona, will we be able to still access the content of your blog as it is now, once you have changed to the Wordpress format?

    I often search your blog for your recipes and love reading your posts from previous years. I hope we can still refer to the wealth of information that you have put so much time and effort into over the past five years.

    Best wishes, Maria xx.

  3. fyi...You can always switch back to the old Blogger interface by clicking the Back to Classic Blogger link on the left menu. Be sure to send your feedback, bug reports and feature requests to the Blogger team. You can do that by clicking Help & Feedback on the left menu, then selecting Send Feedback

  4. Ignore that last comment...from what I am seeing it is reverting back to something 10 years ago...improving things to make them faster makes sense...uploading one image at a time instead of a few seems crazy. I wouldn't even know where to start with a whole new blog so for now I'll put up with adding one photo at a time. Kathy

  5. And so am I. But also realise setting up a new blog site won't be easy!
