Blogger just released a bunch of upgrades, but in order to get access to them, you have to take your whole account through a metamorphosis
. Seems like there are a lot of changes to your account going on when you make the switch to the Beta version.
There are a few changes I've been looking to make to my template, so I took the plunge.
One of the biggest changes is that it merges your Blogger account with your GMail account. Nothing wrong with that. The changes made to your template - acceptable, but not earth-shattering.
The negative thing: I can't leave comments on non-updated Blogs! My account is no longer compatible with the the previous Blogger version.
That means that I can't leave Marcy
a message about how cool it is that she won a contest, and got something for free. (Even if it is just some yarn. I just don't have the yarn fetish that the knitters have. Her commenters are excited about this yarn, people.)
This also means that I can't leave Russatta
a message about how her mom hasn't changed a bit, even though I haven't seen her in like 15-ish years.
I can't even ask Irene
why she hasn't written anything all week.
Know What I'm Sayin'??
