Blogger still sucks

I see BlogSpot picked Monday (the day I also picked to finally divorce myself from them) as the day to launch their "newer, friendlier" Blogger interface.

'Course, no matter how you dress it (and how pretty it looks), under the hood, it's still BlogSpot.

I'm still looking for a decent "BlogSpot Free" button for my button bar on the left rail... If you know of any, let me know.

I ran across one months ago and can't remember where I saw it. And you're right. No matter how Blogspot dresses up, it's still Blogspot. I have a new domain name ( set up with hosting, and I'm just waiting for Movable Type to set me up!

Speaking on behalf of bloggers still using blogspot, you ain't missing a thing.

The newer, better, etc, etc, hosed my comments for several days. They now offer separate pages for archives, but if you do, it's not backwards compatable with 3rd party post comments providers.

They also now offer blogger-hosted comments. To experiment, I turned them on. It inserted some HTML into my template, then gave me an error message saying it couldnt properly modify my template and giving me a chunk of HTML to insert into my template. Fortunately I'd backed up my template, as their attempts to modify it COMPLETELY hosed my blog.
