How I know Google's Blogger is dying

Nobody but me screams about how bad the new text editor is.

Try this experiment with Safari/Mac and the editor:
  1. Write a post in the rich text editor with paragraphs.
  2. Copy from the HTML view.
  3. Paste into a different post HTML view.
  4. View in Compose (rich text). Note the absence of paragraphs.
That's just the tip of the iceberg.

So what do I do with this blog?

Use a different editor like Live Writer.

I love Live Writer, but we're Mac only at home so I'd have to fire up the VM (and wreck our home security model!).

It also doesn't change the implications for Blogger. If LW (which Microsoft has basically sunset) is the workaround for an unfixable mess, Blogger is no less hosed.
