Changing For The Better?




Hi there.  Yes, you have gotten to my blog and I have changed things up, again.  Well, actually, Blogger has made it easy for me to change things, so I did.  They have come up with something called Dynamic Views for blogs and I decided to try it out.  So, what do you think?  I like it--kind of a cool, new look.

While it seems to be much easier to navigate through this blog, the reader can change up how s/he explores.  Look up ^ and to the left< and you will see several terms like Classic, Flipcard, Magazine, etc.  You can click on any one of them and give this blog a new look--one which you might feel more comfortable using.  It's kind of fun.  Go on, play around with the different views, I'll wait.

Now I have to ask:  What do you think?  Is this as much fun and as cool as I think it is?  Leave a comment.  (You have to open a post to get to the comment section--might wind up being a pain in the ass.  Hmmm.)

Gah! I wrote a lengthy comment and then had to select the "comment as" and when I selected Open ID and dutifully filled in my URL, I got taken to a Post a Comment box-and the one I wrote was gone! Luckily I copied & pasted this so I don't have to punch my monitor. :-p

The gist of what I said was, "it might take time to get used to it", but if they don't fix the bug with the comment box, put it back to the old one!

Um... no. I am NOT a fan. Too difficult to navigate & too difficult to leave comments.

I really liked the way you could navigate between posts in the Dynamic View, but the commenting DID just stink big time. So, I just changed the background and went back to the 'regular' view. I think I'll keep this until they can assure me that commenting is better in the dynamic view--but we'll see. :)

me likes THIS version.

Yes, this DOES work much better.

Maybe the dynamic version is intended for people who have blogs that don't allow comments. Like people who spout their political views and don't care to have anyone disagree with them. I dunno, I don't read that kind of blog!

That is very possible. We'll see how things work out, as this is something new and I don't think they have all of the bugs worked out yet. It seemed as if some of the 'views' worked better than others and some of the 'views' seemed to be aimed at businesses that have catalogs, etc. It is an interesting concept and one I'm sure they will keep improving.
