I truly value the comments that have been coming in. Understand that I do not want to stop the blog. I made the decision I did because 1) Google screws with my photos, and 2) Google began charging me for photo space. That made the blogging something that was a source of irritation and frustration, rather than being a joy shared.
If anyone knows of another blog host where I could resume my blog or begin a new one, please email me or, if you don't have my email, leave a comment, to steer me there.
I guess my real issue is that I am done with Google Blogspot.
