Beta Blogger

So I'm trying out the new Beta features of Blogger right now.

Things I like so far:
  • You can now label posts
  • Template changes are much easier
  • They've included widgets for easier template changes as well as edit options right on the blog itself.
  • Side bar widget, template edits and WYSIWYG editor uses Ajax (the geek in me is happy)
  • The ability to restrict who sees your blog. (not that I will for this blog, but it's nice to have that option).
  • Single sign-in credentials using my Google account instead of keeping separate sign-ins for Blogger and the rest of Google-land.
Things that I'm not too impressed about.
  • The template change removed my tracking, and I can't access the HTML yet. I'm hoping that will change soon. (I can go back to my old template, but I'll see how I like the changes first)
So far, so good...

Arggh! I am SO jealous! I can't wait until it's my turn to be a beta user. I am not nearly as computer language/computer saavy as you (no HTML here... well just a little), but I definitely see things that I wish I could have on my blog. Nice. Me likeitalot.
