Technical Difficulties

Dear readers:

For the last four years, I've been posting photos and commentary here on Blogspot. For those of you who don't know, Blogspot is a Google product. However, in its infinite wisdom, Google has just changed the interface for bloggers. While the blog appears the same to you, the familiar screens I use to write, assemble, and edit it have all gone away. There was already a lack of momentum in my writing, and this isn't helping. I'm not quite ready to throw in the towel, but updates may be few and far between while I get myself up to speed with the new format (or decide not to).

Thanks for reading -

  1. Change is good for you or so they say. I am using the new interface but I think they still give you the option of using the old one.
    I so enjoy your posts and your pictures.

    I waved at you Sunday afternoon while we were sitting in a WN taxi waiting for a gate at 1. Got 14 and had a long hike down to baggage after spending a few days in LAS.

    1. The option to use the old interface remains . . . for the moment. I have seen it mentioned somewhere that it's not going to be around for much longer though. My limited time with the new one so far has revealed at least one nifty thing, so all hope is not lost.

  7. Noooo! Please don't give up. I check your blog daily and the updates are always a highlight for me. As a commercial pilot I always appreciate the view from the other side of the mic and your blog is by far the easiest way to do that.

  10. Over the past year or so I have been following your blog and have gained a load of insightful information on one of my favorite topics which is aviation! Your photographs are always amazing and are from the perspective that is rarely seen (the air traffic controller). Thanks for all your work over the years, and I would love to see your blog continue!

  11. If you do decide to quit writing, ( I understand that you may have changed your mind since you wrote this), please at least leave this blogspot up. I love to go back and read past posts periodically.

    Thanks.

    -JR, Runway25Right Aviation, avid reader of your blog.
