I have about had it with Blogger now. For almost the last two weeks whenever I make a new post it sits there for hours and hours before it updates to other blog feeds.
Yesterday I finished cleaning the chicken coop and noticed I had an hour or so until time to feed so I got my daily post out of the way. It did not register on other blogs or even in my own blog list until after midnight. By the time it did register it was already halfway down the list in most blogrolls and looked like an out dated old post.
This is not a new problem but it appears to be getting worse as time goes by. It is also not some weird problem only associated with my blog either as I have seen others also complaining about this issue and even contacted one or two. We have attempted to contact the Blogger staff about it with no results other than condescending statements like "well not everyone can be on top" kinda stuff.
I find it annoying to the point of frustration to be honest and when I get this frustrated with something I begin to lose interest if I cannot solve the problem.
At this point I am not sure what I am going to do about it. It has been suggested that I need to open up the blog account to the google id thing but honestly I don't like that idea. They ask for a little too much information I am reluctant to give. I am also thinking about moving to Wordpress as well.
I recently started a Twitter feed where I am linking my posts and putting up a daily tractor picture tweet as well as links to articles and things I find useful to preppers. Click on the link and follow if you want.
So at this point things are up in the air. Not sure what I am going to do about it but taking 8 hours or more (sometimes days) for the feed to update a new post is just not something I can live with. I am sure the blog data has somehow gotten corrupted and is causing this issue. I have went through and removed blogs from my personal feed that have not posted in years but that didn't seem to help.
Stay tuned and we will see where this leads. That is tomorrow when you finally see this post is up anyway.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!!
