Hello,
thank you for all your comments from the previous posts.  Glad I'm not alone on the 'tat' collecting front.

Question : Does anyone understand Google+ thingy and the way Blogger works these days?   I think it's just me, my mind set and feeling annoyed with how Blogger has changed.  It was all so simple at one time, but now, I am completely confused by the whole thing and can't really be bothered to look into it.  Should I be looking into it?

Doggy Brooch made today.   A little Bee has caught his attention.

Little brooch is just lovely! No, I don't understand it all either!

Glad I am not alone... I haven't a clue either! Why do they have to change things?

Hi,
You need to download Google Chrome & use that when posting otherwise not much works off their own platform. It's another browser.
And we want a simple easy life of art & creativity...
Love your work always...

Hey Viv! I am so relieved because I assumed everybody else in the whole universe was happily plugging along with google plus and leaving me behind in the dirt, all by my lonesome...

I don't get it either. I've tried to move circles and add circles and wound up duplicating circles and then feeling like an idiot because I can't figure out how to get rid of a circle, etc. I thus far have been too lazy to google how to use google plus; or search on youtube, or just put out a plea for help.

Love the doggie. Love your work. *smiles* Norma, x

I don't understand google plus either, get the occasional email where someone in my ' circle' (!) is sharing something with me but I can never see it. Keep meaning to work out if it's possible to escape from the circle!
Love that dog, very vintage :)

I too have no idea... I have circles yet I don't know why or what they are for. I kept my blogger profile as I like it better than this google + thing, I'm a free spirit who is peculiarly unwilling to change.

Blogger, google,circles - don't want to understand really - as long as I can blog, although some days leaving comments just doesn't work! I do know that I love your brooch though!

I like Blogger - can't understand Google+. Seems like if people switch to Google+ then they can only have other Google+ people comment on their blog. I avoid Google+.

Sweet doggie Brooch.. As for Goggle+ I've stayed with blogger but I now can't seem to join in or see others blogs at all it is all very frustrating... Glad it's not just me . Cx

If you get a comment from me I'll be shocked. Read you r every post but blogger doesn't usually let me comment.

This is so lovely. I have almost stopped blogging, reading, commenting. Drives me mad! So I know I miss lots of lovely things/posts. Wish Blogger had a "like" button so Bloggers would know you had visited even if you can't make the darned comment box work!
I am doing a (brief)post a day in an attempt to get back into it but I do think Instagram is now my main "community" .

I don't care for the way blogger has changed things, nor do I care for Windows 8, so I just keep plugging along, not liking any of it except all you bloggers out there. That's the only reason I continue...I don't understand any of it.

I do love your new brooch though. It's my Winston dog (who sadly died over a year ago) chasing after one of my honeybees!

Lovely Brooch.
I don't understand blogger. As long as I can post I don't care. I haven't changed any of my settings. I don't do google+ etc. I just left the settings alone, and it seems to have stayed the same. We have a windows 8 computer, but we found a forum which was really good and helpful and now we have a windows 8 with 8.1 looking like windows xp!

Ha, ha, I was so hoping someone might explain - because I have no clue either!
Admire your work! :-)

the woolly dog said...

Beautiful work as always Viv.
Ha, my husband told me about it, so like a fool I joined with my own name and the woolly dog, he never uses it, and I can't remember how to get on it, no idea what it's for any way, what a bunch we all are! xx

Catherine Constance said...


Googl+ is a mystery to me too. So many people are no reply bloggers because of it. I have wasted so much time trying work it out. As always loving your brooch :)

Mrs Black the shoppe keeping cat said...

Arghhh! Online technical things just never stop changing and each change brings more problems. Give me the simple life anyday. Lovely doggie brooch! x

Crazyhound said...

Hi. Just read this after wasting half an hour trying to understand Google plus. all I wanted to do was check my mail and it insisted that I connect with loads of things that I'm not interested in. I honestly do try, but feel like becoming an analog anarchist. I have Google chrome as a browser and it doesn't seem to help. come back old Blogger!

So far i have managed to stay away from Google Plus and circles. Why can't they leave well enough alone? I have not had any trouble leaving comments and such or making a post. Knock on wood! Hugs! deb
