To Blogger Beta or Not To Blogger Beta, That Is The Question

CW has switched (upgraded?) to Blogger Beta, and the option to do so has appeared on my blog’s “dashboard.” But do I want to? Not being as fearless as CW, I’m a little reluctant to commit my 160 little posts, even though compared to her I have only a baby blog, to a brand new platform.

I’m pretty pleased with some of the new features (like the admittedly somewhat watered down version of categories, built in comment feeds, and the ability to publish posts without republishing the entire blog), but I’m not please that there are still some basics that haven’t made it over to the beta version. Among these is the ability to let people with Daddy Blogger accounts log in and comment on Baby Blogger blogs, or support for browsers other than Firefox and IE.

I guess I’m just not one of those “early adopters,” but I think I’ll hang out in Daddy Blogger for a little while longer. At any moment, though, I may change my mind. Isn’t the suspense killing you?

p.s. Vacation is GREAT. I’ll write more about that when I next get the urge to turn on the computer.

    Well, tonight is the second night Blogger Beta has had downtime. Currently anyone trying to view my blog is probably getting the message: “We’re sorry, but we were unable to complete your request.”

    I hope they resolve whatever it is, and soon! }:[

    No Kidding! (And no, I can’t get into your blog yet.)

    It looks like its getting set to be a pretty great upgrade, though… eventually.
