Like Transplanting Your Garden

I've converted to beta Blogger. This gave me a chance to clean up this blog and my Grandma's diary blog. I still have three smaller, less often used blogs to fully convert, but I'll save that for another day.

Converting to beta Blogger is sort of like digging up a flower garden, and then putting it all back, if you choose to update your template and take advantage of the 'drag and drop' features of the new version. In the process, you can rearrange or just weed out some of the clutter that can collect on your sidebar.

Alert Annie in Austin did notice that comments I made on other Blogger blogs prior to converting to the beta version no longer link back to my Blogger profile, but new comments, made after the conversion, do link back.

If you notice anything wacky about my blog since I've converted or a link that doesn't work, let me know!

Oh, and I guess when I have some time, I'll go back and label some of my past entries to make it easier to find them by categories. I'll definitely have a label for Hoes!


  1. Have fun with Blogger Beta. I made the transition a little over a month ago, and I've been pleased overall with the results. Going back and adding labels to the previous posts has been an ongoing project for me - but well worth the time. Now that I'm out of the template-edit-only mode, I'm warming up to the little "module" features.

    Again, have fun!

  2. It's nice to hear good results from someone who has bravely made the transition!

  3. I switched too but adding some of the 3rd party html was not that easy. Using the Add feature was also not intuitive. But it's probably just getting use to the new format. Once everything is done I hardly make any changes anyway. Good luck in coverting your other blogs.

  4. Update, so far, I am pleased with the results of my upgrade. Adding to my sidebar is much easier.

    I do wish there was an easier way to add labels to the posts. With 250+ posts, this is quite time consuming.
