Hmmm.... I'm experimenting with the New Blogger here on this old, neglected blog. Trying to figure out how the new version of blogger will affect my main blogging project the SfSchools blog. So far I am not impressed.

I had hacked the my old template at the HTML/CSS level pretty heavily. After upgrading to the new layouts feature, all that is gone. Poof. In its place is an oh-so-usable touchy-feely UI that makes a lot of things possible for people that have no clue about HTML, but injects an unwanted, cumbersome layer for anyone like me that wants to fiddle the HTML.

Sigh. It looks like one can get one's hands dirty with the low level template code. So I'll have to play with this for a while before declaring it a mistake. Or maybe this will be the impetus I've always needed to switch over to WordPress or Moveable Type. Something I should have done a long time ago...

Stay tuned.

I'm still pretty grumpy about it. But once I've figured out how to do the things I was doing in the old system, it should be fun to play with some of the newly possible features.
