Okay, I don't know how I got here...and it took me an hour to do so.
I was all set to write an insightful blog about birds that I was going to title 'Flibbertigibbet' which is not the scientific name for a bird species but it looks like it could be.
But I could not get to my blog. I somehow fought my way in this time, but it was hard and confusing and I don't remember how I did it.
You see, I created this blog with a Yahoo.com username a long time ago.
Then the other day I went and signed up for GMail, which is like signing up for a little camping trip and suddenly finding out that you joined the Army. I just wanted GMail because I thought it might be a bit better than Yahoo. But now they want control of all of me.
Anyway, every time I tried to sign on to my blog, it tried to sign me in with my GMail account and wouldn't let me sign in with my Yahoo account.
So I Googled (paradoxically) Google about the problem. Google told me not to sign in with my GMail account but use my Yahoo account instead. I sputtered and spit as I hoarsely screamed that the stupid system won't let me do that and that is why I asked you how to do it!!!
I think this is psychological warfare.
I have cleared my password cache which solved nothing. I have signed out of Google completely (that means that I signed out of my GMail) and tried to sign into my blog.....but there was that damned GMail address again.
I use Last Pass which is a password remembering program. I went into Last Pass and creating an entry for my blog with my yahoo sign-on figuring that I could fling my way into my blog directly from there. Well it flung me....right into a sign-on with my GMail account. I don't understand how that happened.
So now I ask you Google Aficionados, how do I sign into blogspot with my yahoo id without gmail getting in the way?
I think I will keep my blog open and not sign out until I understand how to get back in.
And no, I have no problems making this a GMail ID blog instead of a Yahoo ID blog, but I am afraid to screw around with it and lose everything.
