Pollen Count

pollen counts
not on fingers or toes
but in sneezes and wheezes
itchy eyes and streaming nose
the 1 . . . 2 . . . 3
of bearable
                     and downright wretched

I am thinking of switching blog platforms because of all the bugs I seem to be experiencing here on Blogger.  Any advice from all you blogging veterans?


  1. Ugh, it's so frustrating, just today I have comments from a couple people that I didn't get email notifications whatever the bug is it's not just us! It always seems it get fixed eventually...maybe that's my excuse for just not switching, sound like another nightmare for this very NOT so techy gal. lol!

    And yes, the pollen count....BOO!

  2. I think there will be problems from time to time no matter what platform you might use. I had heard so many good things about Wordpress, and now they seem to be experiencing problems, as well. In spite of any problems you are having with blogger, your blog is always beautiful and I enjoy your photography so much, Kathryn.

  3. the pollen count def affects my son...he has to take allergy medicine daily...

    i have thought about switching platforms but each platform has its personal blog is blogger..dverse is WP so i have experience with each...they both have pro's and cons...i would def not go outside of those two...

  4. Loved this poetic description of spring allergies. Hope you are feeling better. I have always used Wordpress - first a self-hosted site and now the free version. I haven't experienced any noticeable problems with the WP platform. I'm not sure how it compares to Blogger in terms of features or stability.

  5. So true. My daughter suffers terribly with spring allergies. But she says it's an okay trade-off for the warm weather. :)

  6. i have been sneezing and wheezing these last couple of days. not fun. i agree with brian's comment. i have had experience of both blogger and wordpress too and i think blogger is the more user friendly.

  7. Such a poetic expression of the allergy season....
