Should I switch??

Calling all Blogger users -- should I switch to the new version?

Thanks,

Lori

Call me slow...what's the new version?

I initially had a lot of problems. I lost all my links and any customization I'd done. Beta does not allow you to blog directly from Send To on the toolbar nor from YouTube. I'm back to cut and paste. It's easier to make certain changes to the template, to add links , change your header and stuff because you don't have to mess with HTML and trying to figure out where the code goes. I'm used to it now but cursed mightily for awhile. You might want to wait until more of the bugs are ironed out, The Blogger help forums are loaded with disaster stories of people who lost their blogs altogether.

Thanks, Nag. I think I will wait.

Sonia -- when you log in, don't you get asked if you want to change to new version? It was called 'Blogger Beta' for awhile...or maybe you changed, and never noticed the difference? :-)

I think I'm waiting too. The new one looks scary.

Lori, thanks for the comment on my blog and thanks for organizing that festival! That is amazing. Ellis was raving about it. He is a friend of mine and my husbands, and I am going to edit my post to include the other guys who wrote the book. I didnt mean to leave them out.

I'm so excited. Now I have a new blog to read.

Good question and some good answers.
I've been debating about this for the longest time, my biggest concern is whether or not all 2 years worth of posts get migrated successfully.
But I heard new Blogger is out of beta which could mean most bugs (maybe) have been resolved. One can hope...

Welcome, WLSW. I'll add your blog to my blogroll, 'cause people just need a dose of stupid-rich-people now and again. And we're old friends, if we share a common acquaintance or two!

Norlinda -- but what have you decided?!? I'm assuming I'll just stay with what I've got until they kick me off.
Perhaps, I should figure out the easiest way to back up my blog on my computer...
