Beta Blogger

I have been to the Post Office today to send out parcels to Richmond VA and Hollywood......
Yup, a parcel is winging its way from my modest three bed semi in South Glos to a house in the Hollywood Hills....irrationally, I was so proud as I wrote 'Los Angeles CA' on the label. Silly, huh?

On another subject altogether, apparently I can now change to Beta. My dashboard now has an invitation on it.
Do I want to be a Beta?

As far as I can see, I can have more bells and whistles on my blog, but pay for it in that it is harder for some people to post comments.
The new blogs also have 'secure items' which cause problems in opening screens, for example at our workplace.

So, do I join the revolution and become a Beta Blogger? Or do I continue Old School until I *have* to change?

Stay old school until they work out the bugs. I know alot of bloggers who regret switching.

I also have that secure items problem at work.

If it's not broke, why fix/change it?

Almost forgot, your sidebars look screwy in my Firefox browser. Just thought I let you know.

And one more thing, Blogger Beta members sometimes have problems posting on old school blogs, that's why janejill is having problems posting on your blog, from what she just said at Michele's.

Janejill made the switch!

When I leave a comment on a beta blog my name isn't linked to my wordpress site. Go with what you are most comfy with. Good luck with your decision...and your sidebar looks odd in my firefox too

Ooooooohhh I am excited...! Is something winging it's way to me up here on the hill? Yippy!!!

I have that invite, too CQ and so many people have said DON'T do it yet...wait till they get the kinks worked out, that I am not going to do it till I absolutely have to....I have had trouble commenting on some peoples blogs and had to create a new name and password..(WHY? I don't know...) So, me? I'm going to wait.

And btw, your sidebar looks just fine in IE! So it must be a Firefox probelem....!
Also...CONGRATS on your continued smokeless self! Hooray For You, My Dear!

I am still chicken. I have to have a lot of space in my brain to focus on change and it just isn't there right now! Yours always looks great either way.

I haven't ... the old version is good enough for me for now.
