Blogger Gets a Facelift!

Just as I'm about to send this news to Alex Chitu and others, I see Alex already knows about it.  Sheesh!

New post editor.
New Interface
I suggest you check out Alex's review for a detailed look.

For now, I mainly really like how clean and newfangled (futuristic) it looks.  I'm sure I'll develop a deeper opinion, soon.  [After writing this, I also learned I can, finally, edit photos in Blogger.  Too bad Picnik's crazy slow (for me, anyway) and lacks a lot of common features that free screenshot tools have, like blur.]

As another tip (I'm in a tipping mood), if you hate having your blog load on your slow machine (hey, my Cr-48's got a pretty cheap processor) and you just want to get straight to a new post, open the New Post link and then bookmark it, and use the bookmark whenever you want to quickly get to a new post, bypassing your full, published blog.

What do you guys think?

ooh I like the tips! I haven't seen the facelift show up on my side yet, but I'll let you know what I think once I've had a chance to use it :)

Glad you enjoy the tips.

The facelift is still in beta or however Google's calling the testing period.

To see the new look, go to draft.blogger.com. (I have it set as my default, personally.)

I like it. I think I'll wait till they get all the bugs out though

I like the bugs' flavor more than anything else.
