New blogger

So the jury’s still out on the new blogger. So far, I’m not impressed. The bubbly pages seem kinda gimmicky and amateurish, and I miss being able to see the preview pane in split-screen.

Oh, I know I should bite the bullet and move to a proper system like Movable Type, but Geocities doesn’t allow cgi scripts (not to mention, I have no idea how to configure them). Being technologically-challenged, I guess I’ll just have to learn to live with this new format.

But if you’re from Blogger and you’re reading this: thumbs-down.

    I was impressed, don’t disalusion me (hey! how about adding spellcheck? …disalusion doesn’t look right…)

    I personally don’t mind the new blogger, especially since it seems to me that all the changes are superficial… are there any real changes that I haven’t noticed

    I’m with you. Also, it seems to take longer for it to process a post.
