What's The Word, Bird?
Well, I haven't quite finished visiting WOYWWers, but I'm beginning to think the most common word is ARGH! and it's about Blogger! I changed to the new 'Interface' some months ago. Because I was scared that if they forced me to take it and I didn't know what I was doing, I'd be all over the place. So far, not so bad. I've become used to the fact that you have to click on words that are no longer designed to look like buttons to navigate. I've become used to the teeny icon of a cog for letting me in to make changes. I even got used to the fact that certain things were clearly going to change and not be 'get round-able'...I mean, word verification for example, could only be turned off by switching back to the old 'Dashboard' first. This may have been an oversight and not carried forward to the new style, I don't know.
I gather from comments and visits this week that the new 'Interface' has been forced on to people now, and of course, in the switch over, loads of stuff has been omitted or not moved or however it works. So thanks all, for the advice about how to schedule a post, that part of it I can do. It would seem that blogger isn't yet able to recognise time zones and changes, so I'll have to be patient.
What I really want to know now is this - if Google have deemed the 'Dashboard' to now be an 'Interface'...are the car manufacturers going to go all 21st Centruy on us and follow suit? Do we need a campaign to save the humble Dashboard?
