Google+ and Blogger profiles
Google are asking people who use Blogger to merge their Blogger profile with their Google+ one. I think this is a bad idea, and am resisting it as long as possible.
The Google+ profile is inferior to the Blogger one. In the blogger profile, you can click on “Interests” to find other people interested in the same things. So I clicked on “missiology” as an interest, and found a lot of interesting blogs. That doesn’t work with Google+ profiles.
Also, when I go to blogs that have switched to the Google+ profile, the commenting system is linked to Google+ and I find that I cannot type any comments in the comment box. Perhaps it’s just me, in which case I’ll have to develop a conspiracy theory that Google have developed a bug to target me personally.
Last time they seriously messed up Blogger (by crippling the editor) I moved this blog from Blogspot to WordPress. I still have one remaining Blogger blog, my genealogy one, but if they mess with it any more I’ll probably abandon that one too.
