I've decided to take my blogging to a new site.
The problem is, Google overtook blogspot, and they've mismanaged it.
Before, when you posted something on your blogspot blog, you could set it to send you an email every time someone comments. They changed it so that you had to have some sort of Google identity (I don't remember the details, all I knew was I didn't want one), and to see if there were any comments on your blog, you had to periodically check your identity.
That's unacceptable. I just want to check my email.
I have taken my business to Wordpress, which does contact me through email if anyone responds to my blog. You can see my new blog at http://xyquarx.wordpress.com
