I've always been a "dive in head-first" sort of person (at least when it comes to technology), so I've switched over to Blogger Beta. I've had quite a bit of fun playing with the arrangements.
Pros: it's now really easy to rearrange items on the blog, change your fonts, colors, etc. The HTML layout feature is good for adding whatever you like, and I do like the little text option, even though I didn't use it.
Cons: some of the layout features aren't as intuitive as I'd like...it took me a few tries to figure out how to add my blogrolls. But, I did figure it out, so I can't complain.
I'll be experimenting with labels for my posts. Like many librarians, I'm terrible at coming up with labels - you should see my del.icio.us and Library Thing profiles!
What do you think of my new look? Let me know...I'm getting all cleaned up for the Carnival next week!
