I have decided it is time for this season of blog designing to come to an end and will not be accepting any more jobs. I will still make available Free Scripture Tags, as well as other graphics available for a donation of any amount. Thank you for your understanding.

Blogger's New Interface - Dashboard

Have you seen Blogger's new interface? If you don't know what I'm talking about then you probably haven't seen it. Some of you have probably been using it for a while in "Blogger in Draft".

Now when you sign in to your blogger account and go to your Dashboard, in the upper right corner there is a link that says "Use the New Interface". When you click on it you are immediately taken into a whole new look and possibly a whole new level of confusion. :) Don't worry, it's every bit as easy as the old interface. But if the confusion is too much to handle all in one sitting, you can click on the link that says "Switch Back to the Old Interface" and you will be taken back to your familiar safe place.

Eventually Blogger will push everyone out of the nest so I'm going to do what I can to teach you how to fly now. So if you've decided to brave it, when you first enter the new Dashboard this is what you see. You can click the image to enlarge it.

This is your new Dashboard.
  • Column 1 lists all of your blogs by name and provides some basic statistics.
  • If you want to write a new post then click on the pencil image in column 2.
  • Column 3 offers a drop-down menu with your navigation options.
  • Column 4 offers a button that will take you to your blog as it is viewed by your guests.
  • If you have any hidden blogs you can see those by clicking on the "View More" link at the bottom of column 1.
  • Underneath your list of blogs, where it says "Reading List" is a listing of the blogs you follow and their latest posts.

I will be reviewing all of the settings and options to help you familiarize yourself with the new interface.

I don't understand why everything always has to be changed all the time (Blogger and Facebook are both making changes). I looked at the new dashboard a couple weeks ago, then switched back. I don't have the time to learn something new right now. I'm not sure why they felt the need to do this. After all, as the old saying goes, "if it aint' broke, it don't need fixing." The way it has been has been working just fine. Just because something has been a certain way for awhile, it doesn't mean it's old and needs to be upgraded.

I agree but I know you can't do anything about it. Thanks for your help. I sure do miss you. By the way I have downloaded the free Skype and I have my webcam working. Can I call you from the free one or will I have to pay. I know the other is very cheap.

I understand Patti. I was annoyed at first too but honestly I think I like it better now. Really it functions about the same. Just different placement. I'm here for you.

Alice, I miss you too! You can Skype me to my Skype account but not to my phone. I have the monthly plan so I can call phones. Email me for my Skype name.

Tammy, I hope it helped!
Love ya too my friend!!

Thanks Edie! I didn't even know they changed it. Oh my goodness I have been SO out of the loop this year! I'm trying to catch up! Love you!

Edie said...

Glad I could help Lisa. Technology changes so fast it's hard to catch up with. Love you too!
