New features in Blogger
I owe a lot to blogger for my return to blogging. I always preferred Blogger to other blogging platforms. It was so capitulating for me that I could connect to people I would never even think of connecting otherwise when I started blogging. But off late I was losing that passion. I didn't blog for a whole month. The last time I didn't blog for a month was never.
On one fine day I visited by ‘Blogger Dashboard’ to take a look at what my fellow bloggers have published. I then clicked the layout section to add a ‘twitter widget’ because that was in which, I was very active. I saw something called “Template designer”. I clicked the link and I was totally awed by it. Customizing my blog template according to my whims and fancies was a dream and have a glossy look and a transparent template was one of them.
I started exploring each and every option it had. I started the editing from about 9 in the morning and ended up editing till 5 in the evening. My fingers were very itchy; I wanted to write something and something quick. I chose to write what I know about “Time travel” and I was happy with the way it came out.
After 6 pm I was waiting for comments about the post and the template. The first one i recieved was from my advisor, well wisher and well read Srini.
I was over the top after seeing his comment about the post and template. I then recieved a comment from Neha and Ajay. Neha didn't have any clue about the equation and Mr Ajay (Dubai sheikh) was in denial mode that time travel was possible.
I couldn't resist myself from jumping in joy after seeing Avada Kedavra’s comment about the post and her linking that post in her blog.
I then wanted to see whether any other new features were introduced by blogger. When i clicked the Post section I found an option called “Create a Page” Goodness, gracious me, is this dream or what? My feet weren't on ground I was flying up in the skies. You can check my new about page here
These were the two features i was dreaming that blogger would have and i got them. Now that has ensured that I will be blogging often just venture them. I also confess that my blog which I visited once in a blue moon is being constantly visited by me to see that lovely glossy template of mine . This has set the blog registers ringing.
One thing I really want blogger to do is to make its commenting system more elaborate. I want a reply button to reply to the readers rather than using ’@’. I know there are 3rd party widgets out there but there is nothing like having a commenting which is developed by the respective blogging platform in default.
Now you guys would know why I owe my return to Blogger. Hope I didn't bore you guys
