Going CRAZY with GOOGLE

Well guess what GOOGLE took over BLOGGER of which I have four or more blogs. Then they sent me two different emails saying that my domain registration annual fee for one of them had gone through, then a few days later saying it didn't go through. So I try to go to my Admin.Google.com site to see what is going on and they say I need a Google for Work account for $70/year to continue.

Next I try to find a number to call for help. Of course there is no number readily available except the FORUMs for other disgruntled Google users. I look over all the info there and  find no answers. Then I turn to my computer guru son Daniel who listens patiently and assures me that everything is okay, but it isn't. Finally through some chance I discover a number 866-339-0879 and explain to some fellow in India whose English is barely understandable my problem and he sends me to technical support who after many questions, emails etc resets my admin. google password. It was easier before GOOGLE took over BLOGGER.

Being a compter literate grandma as my son labeled me isn't easy or fun but at least I'm still online barely....I love and HATE computers. But at least my BRAIN is still working I think IF I CAN REMEMBER ALL THE PASSWORD CHANGES I'VE MADE IN THE LAST TWO HOURS!!!! What's your experience with computers?

Yes, I have a love/hate relationship with technology too. I love it when it works, am up a creek when it doesn't.

Count me in, I have a love hate relationship with technology too. It is the most aggravating thing on earth. That scenario you described had me chomping-at-the-bits just thinking about it!!! Let me stop here before I get all bent out of shape thinking about it.

Nice post, Lin. It's right on target!
