A Reason Why Blogger IS Better!

Posted by foreualways on January 15, 2011



If you will indulge in my playing around here…

The screen captures above are from both here and my Blogger account, both have the same content and both where done using Windows Live Writer 2011.

The one on your left (white one) is from my post here on WordPress and the one on your right (black one) is from my Google Blogger account. None of the codes are adjusted, meaning they are just as the was uploaded and posted by W. Live Writer!

As you can see the video and picture are not aligned!

The Blogger one posted faster and easier then did the WordPress one!!! Also after posting was the video took a while to show up on WordPress. It was instant with Blogger!

Now maybe it had something to do with Writer. I know that you can embed Youtube videos in both blogging formats / sites.

Here a look at the capabilities of both WordPress and Blogger as listed in Writer



Now maybe that has something to do with it maybe it doesn’t, WordPress capabilities for embedding show an answer of no, where as Blogger show an answer of yes!

Do I have any idea of what I am talking about? No, but I do enjoy doing this

The centering of the embedded YouTube video has something to do with it, I don’t get why Blogger posted the exact same post without a problem!


I found this article in WordPress Support, but I haven’t found a answer yet! Maybe I will contact support

On a different note;

I like the show Seinfeld – the show about nothing! That what you might want to consider my blog. The blog about nothing! Winking smile

Now wouldn’t that be great if I made all the money he did

Have A Great Day and Thanks for the visit!

This is a test of embedding videos and pictures in my new Word Press account

Posted by foreualways on January 13, 2011

This video is from Youtube and embedded fine so far.

This picture is from my account on imageshack.

I can’t seem to embed or link my pictures of videos from my Windows Live Space account here on WordPress.

Moved to Blogger and WordPress

Posted by foreualways on January 8, 2011

Where do I start off? I know this topic has already been covered by a number of other WLS users.

Now a friend of mine here on WLS has been having trouble downloading his Live Space site in zipped format to his hard drive. He had nothing but trouble! He was using IE (not sure of which version), but I tried it with version 8 of IE and it downloaded fast and downloaded 1.24 meg on the first try.

Compared to FF 3.6.13, which downloaded 1.2 meg on the 4th try.

With a total of 6 downloaded attempts. The first few were 303 – 308 kb and yet there was nothing there!

With the first few times I tried to open it and got the following….
Does anybody know what this means?







Well I didn’t get this screen after I downloaded the 1.2 and the 1.24 meg versions. It opened right up, and I uncompressed it using Peazip. I also use 7-Zip. Both programs are free and the later is really popular.

Well once uncompressed I double click on the index link and then on any of the post that I had made and it goes right to my post and  opens that given one fully intact. I see my very first post was in 2007. I see that I don’t have that many entries as my friend Jeff, who has been blogging longer and everyday. So my little 1.2 file should seem nothing compared to his…..

and here what that given post looks like…..

The address for that post is my root drive on my hard drive where I uncompressed it.

I was talking about how MySpace had 192 million users compared to WLS with a 120 million users. Which now seems like nothing compared to Facebook 500 + million users!

Well anyways I don’t know if this will post on WLS considering today date – Jan 8, 2011, but this will go to my Google Blogger account as well.

I will be trying to move to WordPress in the next few days, but I have to say I don’t really feel attached to my content here on WLS. Pictures I always back up my pictures to more then 1 location.

So I hope to see you on WordPress as well as Google Blogger!

Good Day and Thanks for visiting hope to see you there!!!

Well guess this is going to Blogger for now and WordPress later….
