Final Post Here

It looks like i’ve been switched to the new Blogger interface. I mentioned in
An earlier Entry
About this and how inaccessible it looked. You’ll also find in that post a link to the post i wrote on wordpress.

Anyway over the past few days alot of people on twitter said that they had been switched, but then they said that they could still switch back. When i looked last night i had the old interface which was good.  But now I have the new one.

When you go into your blog it looks okay until you go to your dashboard or create a new post, then it’s just horrible. So i’m writing this through email.

I hope i can eddit it if i want to add tags. I think we can still read posts, but i don’t know if that will be the same for long.

So i guess until they decide to get this horrible thing fixed, i’m going over to wordpress. All my posts are over there already as i don’t want to lose
any of it. I have alot of information here so don’t want to lose. Plus i like to look back at things and think that i couldn’t be bothered blogging at
all if i couldn’t continue from where i left off. So you will see the same stuff for a while. I only moved to blogger a few years ago because nobody
was on live journal and thought blogger was pritty good. Obviously not!

So for those of you looking to follow the rest of my journey, my new address is
Here
I’ll start deleting old posts if i can, and only leave this one here. I really do hope that they do get this fixed.

So i’ll hopefully see you at my new blog! Oh and you’ll probably see this post on my new blog too.


Thinking Of Moving?

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while, but i never got around to it. I finally got all my links together today and decided to write a few words on blogger and thoughts on wordpressif you’re thinking of moving blogs. I’ve heard though that it has got slightly better but i haven’t used it yet.

Recently over the past couple of months Blogger announced a new and shiney
Interface
There was alot of talk about this on Twitter. Even sighted people didn’t like it. I decided to create an account on
WordPress
In case I needed to change because of this new interface being inaccessible.

So once you create your account or log in, you will be in what is called your “Dashboard”. This is exactly the same as what your ddashboard does in blogger. WordPress may seem quite cluttered at first, but if you go into your dashboard and press Enter on the
Themes Section
There are a number of different themes you can choose from, but the one i found easiest to use is the
Clean Home
Theme. It seems to minimise the clutter.

Unfortunately when you create a post you need to disable something called the “visual edditor”. Otherwise you can’t write links or anything. To do this, you need to go into the
Users section
Of your dashboard. You then need to go into
Personal Settings
Which is underneath “Users” when you click on it. In your personal settings, you need to tick the “Disable visual edditor” and save your changes.

So when you Create a new post
You can write the usual code for links and such. It takes a while to get used to the way a post is layed out though.

So if you’re still thinking of moving blogs, i hope this post has helped explain wordpress a little. I won’t move unless i need to though!
