Wow... What's Going On With Blogger?!

Good Heavens! I've crawled out of my illness hiatus to find a few changes with Blogger.
Why can't they just leave it alone?!
I logged into my blog the other night very briefly, only to become aware that blog Comments are not currently being emailed to the blog owner; which is what most of us have been accustomed to.
And this business regarding the privacy & cookies & all that, lawdy what a confusion!

As I understand it, Blogger has already added a notification to my blog, informing readers from the EU of any cookies used on my blog... heck I don't even know what cookies are😉 But it seems I don't need to do anything at this point.
I've made several attempts to see the notice, but as I cannot change the country code of my blog in order to see the notice (as suggested in the notice on my Dashboard),  I'm just hoping that everything's ok & that I don't get penalised or blocked or something.

And why on earth did they mess around with Comments? Clearly I'm not the only one who hopes that Blogger restore this ASAP.
Dare I say it, no wonder so many people have ditched blogging for easier platforms like Instagram.
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*

I'm still not 100% with my health... had a few good days last week, but Friday, Saturday & Sunday weren't great. Another visit to the Doc & some further investigation is in order, I think.

A little bit of hexy stitching has been happening when I feel up to it... I've finally added these two blocks on the bottom left... and also the two on the top right a few weeks ago. The pic is not a good one really... & doesn't give any impression of size... with the addition of those lower left blocks, it's now 60inches at its widest, & still about 72inches long.
I was well enough to go to Perth on Sunday the 27th of May, to see my DD-C complete a 12km charity run, & then have a visit to the Perth Craft & Quilt Fair on my way home. I only lasted a couple of hours but it was long enough to find the thimbles I was hoping to find & of course make a few other spontaneous purchases.

Patchwork with Gail B never disappoints... I wanted some fabrics from them for a project I'm planning... & I just couldn't pass up this quite kit... gorgeous mauves, purples & greens... with dragonflies & pretty flowers... so pretty & such easy sewing!
Oh, & I did get the fabrics I was actually looking for, ha ha
Love the writing on the top fq here:
 Pins have become a 'thing' in the crafting world in recent times, so I thought I'd jump on board with these two fun pins from RicRac by Jodie Carleton:

We are forecast to be getting some really nasty weather starting tonight (Mon) & hanging around for a few days... so the evenings will be perfect for a bit of blog catch up & maybe even figuring out how to get Comments working properly again!

Thanks for popping by!

You have put your first comment up so hopefully you get this. We all are struggling. Obviously blogger doesn't want us.
You have had a hard time. Hope things improve..

Ondrea said...

Love those fabrics and your hexies are looking beautiful. So sorry that you are still unwell. Sounds a bit like me a while ago. I have no idea about the privacy thingo or how to find it.

tubakk said...

Great hexies, love them all. I Wonder if Blogger is trying to stop comulication between us, something I thought was the most important with blogging. Hope they will change it soon.

Susie Hoover said...

Please don't go to Instagram. I don't have an account there. Besides it's not much more than pictures I hear. Love to read about the pictures!

Raewyn said...

Yes blogger is being very annoying :-( I hear they are 'sorting things out'...here's hoping. I hope your health continues to improve. It looks like you had a nice little shopping spree and your hexies are growing ever so nicely - it must be stunning in real life.

Sharmayne said...

Hi Anthea, I've just read about putting up a comment as soon as we finish a post and then stating "email followup to comments" - I'll be interested to know if this worked for you?? In the meantime I sure hope you start feeling better ......love that you were able to pick up a couple of treasures from the quilt show

Christine M said...

Hi Anthea. I hope you are feeling better soon. Google can be so frustrating. I did hear somewhere, but not sure where, that they are supposed to be fixing the comments part up. Let's hope they do. Take care of yourself. Hugs, Christine xx

Jeanette said...

I really hope they sort it soon. I did as suggested & commented first but it made no difference to me. Maybe it only works if you don't have moderated comments like i do. Hope you are feeling better. Love those pins from Ric Rac.
Hugs,xx

Fiona said...

Oh delicious fabrics you found.... it's always lovely at craft shows - I think because stands don't have the whole shop so it's easier to see what they are showcasing at that time... and very tempting for us!
Hope your health issues get sorted .... some things seem to take time.... our hands are tied with blogger I think...

Hugz

Chookyblue...... said...

Brigitte said...

That's a question that many bloggers ask right now. Let's hope that Blogger will fix it soon.
I hope that you will feel better and better as soon as possible.

Narelle said...

Hope you're getting to the bottom of whatever is keeping you unwell and feel better very soon.
Clearly I've missed what is (or isn't) happening in blogland ... better check it out. I read Chooky had a good suggestion on her last post :)

Kaisievic said...

Hi Anthea, I am so sorry to her that you are not feeling too good - I do so hope that you feel better soon. Lovely hexies and yes, this latest thing with blogger is a pain in the neck! I hope that they do resolve it soon!
