Six Months LID AKA 1/2 year!

Wow six months behind us! I hope the next6 7-10 go by fast and I hope my car shows back up on my ticker up there!
For those of you who are thinking of changing over to beta but don't know much about it, *DON"T DO IT TILL THEY MAKE YOU MOVE BECAUSE IT IS REALLY A PAIN TO COMMENT ON OTHER PEOPLES BLOGS* Your user name changes to your e-mail addy but your password stays the same. Below is a article that comes up on my new not-so-improved dashboard for those of you who haven't switched but want to know. I wish I would have waited till they worked out all the glitches.

Switching with team blogs and getting out of beta
Just before the weekend we added the final piece to the transition from old Blogger to the new Blogger in beta: members of team blogs can now switch to the new Blogger. This is the last step before we take the new Blogger out of beta.

Team blogs move when the blog’s original creator moves to the new Blogger. When that happens, team blog members will also have to move to the new Blogger in order to post. Team blog members don’t have to wait, though! If you move to the new Blogger, team blogs you didn’t create will still show up on your beta Dashboard. You’ll be able to post with them as before, though they won’t have the new features of the new Blogger. We wrote a help article to explain this all in a bit more depth.

At this point, the pieces are in place:

The new Blogger is feature complete
All new accounts are created on the new version
Known issues on the new Blogger are few and getting fewer ( I HOPE THEY MAKE IT EASIER TO COMMENT*)
(Almost*) all users are able to move their blogs to the new Blogger

This all means that we’ll be removing the “beta” from the new Blogger very soon! At that time, we’ll begin the process of requiring that users of old Blogger move to new Blogger.

* = From time to time we may limit switching in order to keep old and new Blogger functioning smoothly. Also, users with particularly large blogs may not switch right now. This latter restriction will be gradually lifted.
