ezbiker.com is 11 years old this month!!! :-OOO

imageedit_2_5825503639Well EZ Biker Friends, this December will mark 11 years that ezbiker.com has been around and I have truly enjoyed every minute of it. Bicycling has been a steady partner with me for over 50+ years and will continue to be so. Admittedly, this year I have struggled trying to keep my site fresh, informative and at least a little entertaining. But… as bicycling continues to creep ever so closely to the electronic age, I find myself less motivated to continue doing consistent daily posts.

I have carried on a side passion of doing parody observations of news events (Basically I offer my observations on news, other events, remembering things from the past and motivational posts as seen through the eyes of an aging baby boomer. Folks there are things going on today, that would have never seen the day of light back 50 years agoSurprised smileand I basically portray my thoughts on that subject matter, through abstract means, using the Facebook cover page format) on my Facebook page and have (Surprisingly) developed quite a following for my very armature parody expressive works.

For those that visit my Facebook page, you surly have seen my Facebook cover pages; which are not your typical cute photo, end of story publication. (Go back and look at my recent Veterans day post here – 11/11/2015 and my Black Friday post 11/27/2015)

Add to that I really have gotten into taking and / or re-engineering photos into my own personal abstract interpretations. (As seen in the photo to your left) I’ll be showcasing those in a link / tab at the new blog. This is clearly a pursuit I continue to be motivated to do full time with daily posts of at least 2 or 3 of my armature parody expressions.

So ezbiker.com will not be going away; but I will be focusing more of my attention on the new blog. I have put together a short video of  my coming blog and you can get a preview of this at the following link! The official blog lunch will be January 1st., 2016 and that link will be posted here for you! This past 11 years have been a real blessing and a blast EZ Biker Friends and I‘m looking forward to doing great things with my new blog endeavor very soon! I hope my EZ Biker Friends will visit my new blog, in 2016! Stop by here on New Years Day 1/1/2016 and get this link!Thumbs up

Sincerely, EZ Biker :-DOpen-mouthed smile

I know some people will be elated with this story; but obviously I’M NOT ONE OF THEM! I’ve already been brushed *In the HPV bike lane) by some idiots on these e bikes.  Here’s the link to this SAD EVENT……….Sad smile Clearly HPV bicycling has lost another battle to the electronic continuum… that humanity continues to foolishly embrace…Thumbs down

I was suppose to be making my BIG announcement by now; but have been delayed due to the WLW issues that happened earlier in the month. Hopefully in the first half of January, all will be known. It’s been a great 11 years of ezbiker.com blogging folks!Be right back

Hi EZ Biker Friends, well I had originally started sending out a very nice Christmas Greeting; that I was going to even post here! BUT… I started getting barked at, by some of my so-called friends. (Political Correctness Freaks; maybe a few moonbats…) So, I changed my Greeting to this one; which has sent them into orbit even more! LOL! So, I sending this to all my Friends; wishing You a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

OT–Spell check work around… :-D

OK EZ Biker friends here’s a rather clunky but easy work around for no spell check for the time being. There are MILLIONS of these sites on the web; here’s one I have used.

http://www.spellcheck.net/

Then all you do is open the windows side by side, compose in your Spell checker or visa versa (Cut and paste into the spell checker; correct spelling and cut and paste back into your blog post. Thumbs up

Alternative Blog clients…

OK EZ Biker friends, this is NOT the BIG announcement; but instead a suggested work around to the present OLW issues. I believe it’s going to take a while before they get that all sorted out and thus, I plan on looking into using an alternative blog client for the foreseeable future.

I remember doing blog client research back when I first started to move into blogging. And YES, there are some pretty decent alternative blog clients out there and here are some links to go check them out!

Over all search for blogger clients link in bing: http://www.bing.com/search?q=Blog+Client+Software&FORM=QSRE3
Five best free blogger clients (A little dated) but I think some of these can get you by, until OLW gets sorted out better. http://www.ilovefreesoftware.com/15/featured/5-best-free-blogging-clients.html

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One specific client program that’s pretty high on my list is this one: http://www.blogdesk.org/en/index.htm
UPDATE 12/19/2015 - Not sure if this client works with Blogger as of yet. Have sent an email to them.

 UPDATE 12/20/2015 - Got an email back from these people and they still don't support Blogger; but they might look into it. I sent them some links of all the fun that's been going on... :-PPP





Got the following client link in: http://deepestsender.mozdev.org/  It has not been updated since 2011; BUT... it works with Firefox and has been noted for working with Blogger.
 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I’m sure there are others and if anyone has some good suggestions; PLEASE pass them onto me and I'll share them here! ezbiker.comATgmail.com (Replace the AT with @)

UPDATE! Got this from Angie! Thanks! :-D  http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/desktop-blogging-clients-the-ultimate-list/

A BIG Announcement coming soon, here at ezbiker.com!

UPDATE... Major issues already!

Well EZ Biker Friends, if other are having the same issues I am; there's going to be MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of Pissed OFF Bloggers! Right off the bat, I can't setup my new account with the Open source writer because, it says my username and/or password is invalid. I have only been using the same log in information for the past 5+ years! I can log into my email with ezbiker.com using the same information this Open source site says is invalid!
I have setup an account with https://github.com/ and even my sign on information is buggy, signing on with them! I submitted my issue; so lets see what happens. Well... it might be time to go with another blog service..........
Stay tuned!

Update # 2
I saved this blogger forum link from the last time there were issues. This present one is just starting to COOK. Here's the link: 
https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/blogger/lw_sNsyySKI 

But you will probably need to sign in om your google account.... 



 UPDATE 3 - Changed see Update # 4

For any of you that might want to send OLW aka GitHub a little LOVE... or help email, here's their contact email link:  https://github.com/contact

https://github.com/OpenLiveWriter/OpenLiveWriter/issues/new

Once you have clicked submit you can click on the "Issues" tab and see your submission and others. I just submitted mine and already got a response. They are aware of the Blogger log on issue!

Here is the response I just got... So they are aware of this isse and am working)?) on it... :-///




 

OT - BREAKING News! Windows Live Writer no longer works with blogger!


 Quoting from the website:    Windows Live Writer has been turning blogging up to 11 since 2007, but since 2012 things have been a bit quiet with the application itself. However over the past few months I have had the pleasure working with a very passionate group of engineers volunteering their time to ensure that Live Writer has a sustainable future. I'm pleased to announce that today the .NET Foundation welcomes a new project - Open Live Writer. One of the great things about Live Writer has always been the passionate community behind it and I can't wait to see what that community does now everything is open source and on GitHub.

To download the latest version of Open Live Writer, visit our website: http://www.OpenLiveWriter.org/. Open Live Writer is designed to sit side-by-side with Windows Live Writer so installing Open Live Writer won’t impact your existing version of Windows Live Writer.
For the latest news and updates about Open Live Writer, you can follow us on Twitter as @OpenLiveWriter and find other ways to connect on: http://www.OpenLiveWriter.org/.

 ***********************************

So EZ Biker friends, there are a few posts already in the pipeline; but it will probably be a few days before any added posts are done. I'm going to have to go in and move saved drafts to the new Open source OS and get everything setup for the new Open Source writer. It would have been nice if some sort of notice would have been sent though... :-(((
