IS BETA REALLY BETTER? HMMM?

I changed the blog to Beta today. The reason I changed is that I noticed a few comments on other blogs that were complaining about having trouble commenting on blogs that had not switched yet. So I figured that's why I'm not getting hundreds of comments on my thought provoking and oft times controversial posts.

Another reason is that every time I go to my dashboard, it tries to convince me to change. I'm weak. I didn't wanna do it, but I doed it.

Reason number next is that, according to 'them', Blogger in Beta is better than Blogger in Blogger. Yeah, really! It says you can drag and drop stuff. Really! I'm not kiddin'.
Folks, to be honest with you, I don't have a clue about draggin' anything on the computer, but I'm sure if I do drag it, I'll prolly drop it.

And finally, I changed 'cause they said that within a couple of months everyone would be required to change. I would have refused, but it's just not the hill I want to die on.

Hope it doesn't cause you any trouble trying to access this blog or comment. O.K. Open the flood gates! Let the responses flow!

I switched several months ago and have yet to notice a major improvement. I think they just tell us this stuff to keep us from defecting to WordPress.

The biggest improvement I have noticed is that uploading photos is better and when I change the template, it doesn't take fifteen minutes to update.

Since I have a group blog, i haven't been able to change yet. But I opened another account to see what it was like, and I liked it better.

Beta betta? Yu betcha yer blogosphere (that opener is there just to bother Buggy).

I regreted switching at first 'cause I couldn't comment properly at other blogs, but they've ironed that out - mostly.

It's mostly a gimmick, but it's not a difficult transition to make. Prolly.

Cameron,
You are probably right. I'm going to check out WordPress.

Kim,
UHHH? What do you mean by "change the template"?

Jeremy,
How do you know it's better? Did you post on it? Did you get comments? What, exactly is gooder about it?

Bug,
Yeah, I know. I hate myself for using a Turk-ism. I'm gonna go wash my keyboard with soap.

Terry,
Every time I comment on my own blog, I have to do the word verification thing 2or3 times. I'm kinda not happy about that.I'm gonna do it now. Watch what happens.

I keep a list on my sidebar of books I'm reading, and if I finish one and update, I have to update the template.

I also had to update the templat when I added a new link; a pastor guy with two wacky sons who likes cars.

Wow I really have hit the big time if you linked me. I wish I had some suspenders to pop.

Seriously, thanks for the link. I hope I never make you regret it.
