My blog has always been hosted by Blogger. On the weekend I exported everything to WordPress. In such of Blogger messing with my art, turning it into fuzzy crap. It has been an on going problem and I get the vibe that it isn’t going to be fixed. So why stay somewhere that keeps wrecking my art?

Googling for free images kept taking me to sites that charge a fee (liars!)…and also to a picture of a cock ring, which I still don’t understand…
