Blogger Has a New Look!
I'm just not digging the new Blogger interface. I'm sure I'll become reconciled to the new scheme of things, but change ain't good (damn, two references to The Professional in the space of a few days... I may need professional help, though the image of the Grim Reaper as a Manic Pixie Dream Girl...Manic Pixie Dream Ghoul? Damn, that would be a great premise for a horror comedy in the vein of Return of the Living Dead. Actually, Manic Pixie Dream Ghoul would also be an apt description of the title character of Brian McNaughton's dark fantasy tale Meryphillia). Anyway, I digress... I dislike the new interface and I absolutely loathe the preview feature. Also, am I the only one to have a goddamn right-margin toolbar that cuts off the last couple of characters per line? Double bing-bang hell, that is NOT a good feature. I don't see any great new features, either. I'm not a Luddite, but I tend to avoid changing things that aren't broken. I still use the flip phone I bought seven years ago (it's a seemingly indestructible industrial phone that I bought because I tend to work under conditions adverse to the longevity of electronic devices), my car is over ten years old (I had to retype "years" a couple of times because the goddamn right margin toolbar made it unable to determine that I had typed "yeatrs" by mistake)... I'm conservative enough in my consumption patterns to risk being seen as a skinflint. This new "improved" Blogger? I'm just not digging it. It's not as bad as the updated Captcha system that I jettisoned, but it's pretty damn bad. Not bad enough to get me to change to another platform, though. Not yet, at any rate.
