Like a fish...
Or, as Cara said today, "What the ... #*&(*^%* ... Typepad. That blows!"
A day without Margene, I survived. Many craptastic (bow to Norma) days with (or without, as the case may be) Bloglines, I survived; I even kept on feelin' the love. The learning curve days spent with NewsGator, not too bad.
A whole day without Typepad? For them, too, I've kept on feeling the love. They've grown awfully fast, as have all blog-hosting services, I imagine, and have had some growing pains -- lots.of.growing.pains. It seems that they were pretty up-front about it today, when ProBlogger called and asked about it directly, and then later on their own sites. A whole day, though. It does blow.
I've read more than once, though, that a blogger should have their own domain, own their content with no fuzzy lines. I know, too, that other folks (JenLa more than one, twice, thrice, girls?) with other blog services and/or their own domain have issues with losing things from time to time. That's what I call techno-crap and you've just got to expect it. Computers fry, hard drives fail, domains blow. Is it time? May I soon be Jaywalking in more than one sense of the word!
