Oooh, New Blogger

I switched-they were out of beta (whatever that means), but the new version allowed all my posts and comments (I had too many for beta) and this also features labels for the posts (or tags I guess) and supposedly private posts, etc. Since this is my first post using the new version, time will tell I guess. Hmmm, instant publication also. Also, dashboard shows how many comments each post received and you can click onto them from dashboard (which should make answering them much easier and I promise to start answering them on the comments more often). Once I comment on someone's blog, I rarely go back to see if they answered it through comments, but assumed they would email me, like I sometimes do when that happens to me. However, I have noticed that lots recomment, etc and I guess I'll start doing that now too. BTW, this new version is the one that keeps showing up as so many posts in bloglines and to me, is an annoying PITA.

Okay, I found a problem-some of you now show as anonymous comments and others show their blogger name-is this because they aren't on new blogger or because they don't have blogs here now.

Okay, another problem-apparently I have to log into the "new" blogger account (which they changed to your gmail addy instead of sign in name) in order to post comments. I found that out the hard way and had to repost something after I signed in. Sigh...I'll figure it all out.

I just switched too, so far, so goood however, I was hesitant to switch because of the comment/gmail thing. And yes, the blogline thing has a few kinks. Oh well, hopefully they'll get it all figured out sooner vs later. Seems like we'd all have to switch eventually. Well, it's free, I can't complain. :o)

I'm confused... there's a "new blogger" that isn't the beta? And they can handle big blogs now?

I got the invitation to switch but when I tried I couldn´t. That´s why I´m in the old one yet. I hope they will help me or switch automatically some day! Enjoy the new version, sounds good!

Yeah there are still some glitches. When I first moved over I could not figure out how to log directly into the new blogger, so I had to log into the old one first. But I figured it ou. After a while it gets easier.
