"Note that, even if your blog is eligible to switch, you may not have the link to do so on your dashboard. We are starting out by just switching over a limited number of accounts, but we'll add more and more as time goes on. However, if you still want to try out Blogger in beta, what you can do is to visit beta.blogger.com and create a new account. Later on, you'll be able to merge this account with your original Blogger account. Thanks for your patience, and we promise it will be worth the wait!"
So I changed to the Blogger beta set-up: it's newer looks nicer and has many improvements as far as playing with the look etc of your blog. All my education with html could have been avoided...HOWEVER...having gone through the very quick and easy change-over (you need a Google account, which is also easy or unnecessary if you already have one or a gmail account) I cannot comment on other blogs that are normal Blogger...when I tried a page comes up saying the following:
"Unfortunately, you cannot post a comment on a non-beta blog or claim a mobile blog using your Google Account. These features are coming soon."
There you have it: change if you want but be aware that as yet you cannot post on non-beta blogs!!! Which means I'm out in the wilderness a bit and I'll have to comment as a 'non-blogger'...I'll try to avoid being anonymous after what happened on Six's blog beach-paraphernalia post the other day (23rd Aug)...
Now you know. Message to Blogger:
EVEN THOUGH THIS WILL BE FIXED SOON IT SHOULD BE IN BIG LETTERS ON THE FIRST PAGE TELLING BLOGGERS! ESPECIALLY IMPATIENT ONES LIKE ME!!! GRRRRRR!!!
