Bloggers' Night Before Christmas

Okay, it's not exactly the night before Christmas, but it's close enough. I put this post up awhile back but didn't give it the proper attribution. Since it is now Christmas time, it's certainly appropriate to reprint it and give credit where credit is due. Bloggers' Night Before Christmas by OMNI 'Twas the night before Christmas, and inside each house Was a blogger quite busy with keyboard and mouse. A post each one published on Blogger with care; Then viewed the results with a horrified stare. They wistfully thought of their comfortable beds While dealing with problems that each blogger dreads: The bloggers on Beta are caught in a trap They cannot revert though their blogs turned to cr*p. Blogger has always got something the matter Both versions have problems, not just the latter: Our lengthiest posts disappear in a flash To see our file uploads we must delete cache The style sheet's gone crazy, but why we don't know The sidebar's no longer beside, it's below Your blog skin and link list may soon disappear Along with your archives for most of the year Unless you go back up your template, and QUICK You might lose it all with just one ill-timed click. And if all of that is too much of a pain You'd better ask Santa for your own domain. Merry Christmas everyone.

Merry-late-Xmas!! Hope a good time was had by all!

I actually finished Elantris as it just turned Xmas Day. Awesome read. Thankyou, and a very happy review of it will be up soon :D

And most of those blogger things have happened to me at some stage. I still prefer blogger, though. Most of the time, it's just so simple to use!
