Well, I switched over to the new Blogger beta today and it’s been a mixed bag. I like having “labels” (tags to the rest of the world) for my posts since it will be easier to go back and find things that I wrote about previously. Well, at least it will be from this point forward; I don’t know that I’m going to go back through 995 posts I’ve made in the past 4 years and tag each one.
On the down side, I had to re-enter all my links and my book list, and I’ll have to find a way to get my Library Thing widgets back onto the blog too. The HTML code being used now exceeds my quite limited expertise and so I’m stuck using the WYSIWYG layout editor that the beta has. This was a serious pain for the book list. Each entry had to be put into the layout editor individually and each one entered went onto the top of the list. Okay, no problem right now, I just did the list backwards. But in the future, I’d have to click the button to move the entry down the list some 130 or so times to get the most recent book to the bottom of the list where it belongs. Then I figured I should just make a separate list for each month. Yeah, I thought of that after I finished entering all the books. So I just deleted September and re-did that one as a different list. I’ll carry that on with October, but if anyone wonders why there’s a bigger gap between August and September than between any other months, that’s why.
Even with several posts today, I’m falling behind. I have a couple movies I want to mention, but I’m need to go to bed. I’ll try to get to them tomorrow. Last point of note today: Blogger’s spell-check finally recognises “blog” as a word. This will be your last update on that topic.
