In summary, the conversation revolved around the speaker's search for a reliable and easy-to-use blogging platform. They initially signed up for Wordpress, which has good points such as no ads, attractive appearance, and easy sharing with Facebook. However, they encountered issues with the formatting software when mixing images and text. They also mentioned the hassle of dealing with spam. As a result, they asked for recommendations for a platform that meets their criteria, including being free, reliable, and allowing for text and image publishing. Google Blogger was suggested, but the speaker encountered issues with linking it to Facebook. The only solution they are aware of for mixing images and text is to directly deal with the HTML code.

My girlfriend made me get a blog (long story). I signed up for Wordpress which is free and mostly good but their formatting software is way too buggy. I can't do very basic things.

Good points of Wordpress
No ads.
Attractive appearance
Very easy to "share" with Facebook. That's the #2 criterion.
Able to shut off all the spam it generates with minimal effort. That's #3.
Free. Bad points:
When I mix images and text Wordpress mangles the text formatting. Not acceptable. Now my images are failing to appear too.

So anyone know of a place that's reliable, easy to "share" with Facebook, won't spam me to death, allows me to publish text and images, and isn't horrible in some other way? I guess maybe I'll have to give up on free.

I tried Google Blogger. I went through an elaborate procedure to link it to Facebook. I got the end. Recipe Check Failed. I checked around. Others have the same problem. No help. Too bad.

The only sure way of mixing images with text that I am aware off is to deal directly with the html code.
