The Emergency Blogger Hasn't a Clue system will now test the new Blogger posting screen for Paperback Writer. Please standby as PBW begins the test.
I hate this. What are all these stupid icons for? What happened to using words? Did everyone finally forget language and can only understand pictographs? Must we all now blog like ancient Egyptians?
Okay. I'm calm. I can do this. If I can make a new paragraph. Can I make a new paragraph? Maybe I should type in that idiot pointy-bracketed P that was the only thing that worked last night. Only I think I have to be in another screen. Where is the hieroglyph for the other screen? Let me try some of these. No, that's insert image from Google's dumb image service that I don't use. No, that's video upload. I think. Is that PacMan? Why do I have a PacMan icon?
I can't do this. Why should it be, you know, simple to use? Why is there a five-second lag now everytime I type something? The bastards are determined to make me relearn everything. This is so stupid. I can't find tags. At all. The big T with the little red x is not tags, btw; that much I figured out. Because using the image of a T for Tags would be too confusing, right? It's probably the PacMan thing. Or not. Everything is wrong, in the wrong place or has completely vanished. Maybe. The all-white screen is making me snowblind.
Does everyone see the birdie? 'Cause I sure don't. I can't view the blog when I hit view the blog.
This is my photoblog, or should be, unless Google screwed that up as well.
Google, you suck.
Thank you, this concludes the test of the Emergency Blogger Hasn't a Clue system. Had this been an actual emergency, your local writing community service would likely have sent you somewhere else until PBW stopped screaming in outrage or her head exploded, whichever came first.
