|This is what the layout page of this blog looks like in the new Interface|
So far as I can see all the rest of the "behind the scenes" stuff is pretty much the same as before - but it sure looks very different! Very Zen!
In some ways it's quite disconcerting and I recommend that you don't take a look until you've got time to explore slowly. Otherwise you might just get lost!
The way to access the new interface is via Blogger in Draft - which is the part of Blogger where you can try out the new developments before they are released to the world in general.
You can read all about the new Interface in:
- Blogger Redesigned (April 2011) - which discusses how the new design is going to be rolled out slowly - starting with Blogger in Draft Users
- Blogger’s Updated Interface Now Available for All Draft Users (7 July 2011) which highlights how the new design is now available to all Draft Blogger uses - which includes me.
Big tip - if confused hit either the name of your blog or the big Blogger icon in the top left hand corner and the menu of options reappears
What I like best - the fact that the window in which you post now extends as you write so you can see the whole post on your screen all the time. About time too!
Major gripes - it would seem that I am not alone in finding it hard to look at in terms of brightness and lack of contrast for those of whose eyesight is less than wonderful. I think Blogger needs a user panel which includes older people!
Comments about how it's working can be found and where things can be found - can be found in comments! You can also read the comments on the Blogger in Draft posts to see what else people like/find irritating.
