The New Blogger Platform
Blogger is moving to a new interface for managing blogs. The blog itself will be the same, but the tools will have a bit of a different look and feel. Two days ago I switched over, since it'll happen at the end of June anyway. Not everything is smooth, but it seems to be getting better.
I noticed that Joe commented that his comment had come out as by "Unknown." That's a glitch that I've noticed. I've always set things so that all comments go to an email account, then I handle them with the Blogger software--it works for me and allows me to recover from mistakes. Since switching over, I've noticed that--for no reason I can discern--while the comments in the email inbox show the proper commenter names, they don't always show up that way in the Blogger comment management software. They normally do show up correctly once published. That's all I can say for now, and presumably Blogger is trying to iron those things out.
