that last post, such as it is, will be my last post on this blog. i find all the new "improvements" to the composing system to be counter-intuitive, impossible to use, wildly slow, etc. the tags on the previous post will attest to that. i just finally gave up trying to get them right. fuck it.

7AM Wednesday 25th though i had looked for it under every gear-sign i came across, there was never an option to revert to the old interface. apparently, i had not tried them all. found one where that did indeed reside this morning and am goiong in to re-edit those last two posts. but... what they're saying is that soon that'll be gone too.

Cara, I'm so sorry to hear this. I've always enjoyed visiting your site and being entertained, educated and often astounded by the wonderful wedding of image, word and sound.

Hi Lily... sorry it means my dear in Italian.... still tend to use those terms .. guess I should revert to my own language now that I'm back in Canada.

That's too bad. I really enjoy your site, but perhaps another platform like tumblr would be better suited to what you want to do. I hope you don't stop posting completely.

Hi!
It's very easy to go back to the old Blogger interface. Here is the tuto : http://bloggerfordummies.blogspot.fr/2012/02/how-to-revert-to-old-blogger-ui.html.
Hope to read you again soon!

I sincerely hope you will be posting again one day. Always such a pleasure. It is amzing that google can't get their act together with blogger though. For an epic tech company blogger is serious clunky and limited. All the best. Thanks for all the treasures you have shared with us.

Please send a message to where you go if you stop writing here.
I've enjoyed your word and image collages more than I've let on....sorry about that.
You have a great eye for linking together things that I would not have and I have truly enjoyed benefiting from your deliberate choices and shared images and ideas.

thank you, art&vintage-- well, as you see, i finally found it (after having searched yesterday) and redid the last two posts, but this option, they say, will be short-lived.

Well, I'm not saying 'Goodbye'. I know it's utterly crap what they've done but you're such a perfectionist. I know I don't come onto your blog enough, so it would be hypocritical of me to say, 'Don't!'

But 'Dont't you dare!'

RIGHT!? For what it's worth, your blog is at the top of my list & the first blog I open...you have no idea how much your blog has influenced my art...informative & a tremendous resource...did I say please continue blogging, if under a different address. Post the link. I'll be there.

well, true to nature, blogger ate my original comment when i tried to post it...
needless to say, i understand your decision. i migrated all my blogger post, from all the way back to 2003, to wordpress for the time being, until i figure out what i'm going to do as well.

i hope you choose to continue your work somewhere, i've learned so much and encountered so many new and wonderful things, i will miss it, dearly. if not, then it shall be like the turning of yet another page, and i will have learned to see some things in a different way for it.

be well,
gregor

thank you, gregor. how kind of you to tell me that

Blogger namastenancy said...

Oh please find another option and continue writing. Your voice is so unique, your vision so beautiful and informed that it would be a tragedy for us to lose it. We NEED YOU!!!
But I hear you on the "new" Blogger interface. What a slow, clunky, ugly piece of C**(p. I'm looking into Word Press and may migrate there as I hate the new changes in Blogger. I can't understand why they are doing this. Nobody likes it.
So, let this not be farewell but simply until we meet again.

I too hope that you will be back with your creative pathways. But I am also sure you will do what you must need to do and that whatever you do will have equally gentle ramifications for all those you reach out to and respond to you. Be well Lilly.

I THOUGHT I POSTED TOO! WHO KNOWS how many people who adore your blog are not showing up here.

This is the best blog I have ever seen. No exceptions made for present company although I like you too but if it were not for this site I might not have found the others as quickly.

I only started following you in the past 6 months but have spent so much time here - and then running off to pursue so many of the artists you have exposed me to. Coming here has been my one reliable treat and I'm going to miss you.

Take good care and thanks for all you have given,

Obviously understand your frustration with the New Interface...let's keep examining it and pushing for its retention.
