I Call It As I See It

Ok, Blogger is great and everything, but sometimes it just really gets on my nerves. So I'll just get it out of my system and then I'll move on, I swear!
  1. The help files on Blogger are pretty sucky. They tell you that you can do pretty much everything you want in Blogger, which is wonderful. But they never tell you how! It's always something along the lines of "google it". More often than not, it's not that easy. Everything that I've done to my blog (which isn't much yet, I know), I did by finding another blog that had what I liked and looking up that page's code. Stealing codes is fun and everything, but sometimes it get annoying. And finding a site that has what you are looking can take a long time. This is why I'd appreciate somewhat more friendly help files! I know that there must be something out there that has all of the codes I could ever need, but I can't find it. If you know about such a place, please let me know! Right now I'd like to widden my colums and change my title to an image. If someone out there knows the easy way to do that, please help me out! I'd love to avoid hours of trial an error.
  2. Blogger also sucks on an entire other level that has nothing to do with Blogger itself, but with the people who use it. I don't mean to offend anyone, but I will say this: put an end to all of the freaking link farms! Jumping site to site can get very irritating when nearly 1/3 of all sites are about mortgages, car repair, Mexico vacations etc and are cleary not posts but the same post with link pointing to their main site over an over again. Has nobody ever told these people that link farms never work, asside from getting you banned in search engines? I also strongly dislike pop-ups, forced downloads and anything else that just doesn't belong in a blog.

I know that I'm not the only one that feels this way out there!

That's all that I had to say.
