I’ve been asked about making the switch from Blogger to Blogger beta, so in the interest of keeping my faithful readers (Diane and Barb) informed, here are a few of the differences I’ve noticed so far about Blogger beta:
Email notifications now indicate on which post you received a comment and include a link to that person’s blog as well as a link to your own post.
Switching is easy, but it takes several minutes. Be prepared to wait. I haven’t noticed anything gone missing, so we’ll assume that means you don’t lose anything in the process. Other than several minutes of blogging time.
I don’t know if this was just a glitch from yesterday, but when I tried to post comments, I couldn’t use my blogger ID. I had to click “other”, and type in my URL.
The edit posts page shows how many comments each post has received.
There is a customize design option that allows you to drag and drop items in your template if you are HTML or CSS challenged. I haven’t tried this yet. I redesigned mine the old fashioned way. : )
Are you using the new Beta Blogger? If so, how do you like it? Let us know!
