But this is not so easy to do. All google's stuff seems to be heavily connected now, and it appears that if I delete the gmail account, I will lose the whole blog.
Hence, I am left with no other option than to leave my formerly beloved blogspot. I've loved all the options, the colors, the templates, the ease, but I want to be able to delete this email account without losing the blog.
My questions to you are:
1. is it true that if I delete the gmail account I will also delete the blog?
2. if #1. is true, then could you please tell me where you blog from, and how you like it?
3. and then, how do I make the switch so that ALL my words and photos are not lost in the change?
I know that many of you have written about this, but I didn't want to take the time this morning to go searching. I'd like to get out of this conglomerate with my blog intact.
Thank you in advance for any help you may offer.
Addendum: I'm staying here. It's just too much work and trouble to bother and change when it is just a matter of an email account. It can just sit there, and I'll post my other email on the blog. Thanks so much for all the responses.
