A new month

A new month, a new look.

With Beta Blogger on board I've taken the opportunity to put a new dress on my blog. Makes a change from my usual provocatively garish colours.

PS. The change over to Beta was trouble free. I chose the Harbour template and re-did the images and changed colours. Am currently working through applying labels to all my existing posts. Any comments now arrive in my Googlemail account conveniently labelled with the name of the post it belongs with, so no more hunting through my blog to see where a comment was posted. It seems that in due course, anyone with Blogger will have to move over to Beta but of course by then it won't be called Beta!

Oooo, I love what you did with this template. I'm loving beta Blogger, too. I'm not upgrading all my blogs because a few have custom-made templates, but I've done a few and added labels and am having fun. :)

But I seem to be having trouble knowing how to post a comment so this a test one.

And I see that my other blogs have also made the change over and I didn't have to do a thing to their templates.

Fine, Doris, but why are you using the irritating Word Verification caper? Why not just Comment Moderation?

Doris said...

The reason I haven't Tony is to allow posts to be published immediately. I don't want it to rely on me to moderate them, but I might try it out in due course if that helps with the temporary log in problems.

I think you must have missed a trick in the old system - the emails would take you direct to the blogpost they had come from if you clicked on your own (blog)name at the bottom of the email! ;-)

And I've just lose this comment twice so I'm commenting now anonymously!

Oh my goodness Astryngia!

I definitely missed that trick :-(

Thanks - belatedly!!! :-)

We'll all have to move to beta? Just when I finally get around to learning enough about the old system to make a three-column template... Waaaah!

I'll wait until I'm forced to do it.

(How did you manage 27 new posts while I was away? It was only three weeks!)
