On the New Blogger

Excuse the look, I'm playing around with, uh, the new Blogger.

I was going to say Blogger Beta, but of course, that's not correct. Blogger Beta is the new Blogger.

I've held off any switch as I wanted some stability on the system. Now, that change is inevitable. Though I can still opt to use the old HTML codes, the new features are starting to win me over. Unfortunately, that means I have to go and redo my templates. Not a problem, though, as the Christmas holidays are a great time for tinkering around.

Stuff that I like:

* Labels: finally, a sensible way of organizing posts within Blogger instead of the hacks I used to use. And now, I can show just specific posts from a certain category, too.

* Widgets: now I can just edit the sections I need to. I can even move them around if needed.

* Hierarchical archives: a more flexible way for organizing archives than the previous system.

Stuff that I don't like:

* New tags: argh! but it's only because they're new. I could learn to like it.

We'll see what happens over the next two days.

  1. When one says "new" doesn't it imply that there was nothing else before it? Shouldn't it be "improved"? Depression... Makes one think of stuff one normally does not want to think about. ;)
