New Blog

Dear Blogger,

I give up. I've tried unsuccessfully for over a month to publish to and it's not working. I tried all the fixes suggested from using my IP address in Settngs to changing the domain name. Apparently this is a fairly common problem for people using FTP to import to their own domain. (I can't believe I know what any of this means.)

I feel like we got married and now you're forcing me to change my name. This isn't what I wanted but not blogging is causing my writing skills to rust. Just twittering all the time is leaving me incapable of stringing together more than 140 characters at a time. I'll change my name Blogger, unwillingly, so I can keep writing. I suppose it's better than living in a garret somewhere. Although those garrets are almost always in a place like Paris.

I've got to get back in a groove, Blogger. I was getting pretty good at the snappy 600-800 word post. Now I'm out of shape. I'm wearing a velour track suit, smoking, watching those whipper-snappers lap me around the track. But I'll catch up Blogger. As far as I'm concerned, we're still married but you're sleeping in the guest room.
