Grrr Google

I'm starting to get a little annoyed with Google. I had my little e-book on genealogy blogging ready to go. All I had to do was hit "publish" and make it available to the masses. A few weeks before the launch date, Google said they were changing the names of Blogger and Picasa to something else and would be doing so in about six weeks. Since I mention Blogger quite a lot in a book about blogs, I decided to wait, see what the new name would be, then update my own book so it would be current.

Six weeks have come and gone.

Still no new name for Blogger.

Still holding a book draft in my computer.

But you know how the world turns, right? If I hit publish today, Google will announce the new name of Blogger tomorrow.

So I wait.

And do more genealogy research to pass the time.


  1. And wehave to wait as well :'(

  2. Just put a note in the front matter stating that Google has proposed these changes, and go ahead and publish. Otherwise you will be waiting until the bovines return to their domicile!
