Pho v. 2.0

I took the plunge over the weekend and switched over New Blogger or Blogger Beta or whatever they're calling it today. So far a mixed bag. Navigating from the dashboard is certainly easier. I like tags, though it will be a while before tagging makes a difference.

On the other hand, I made the apparent mistake of also moving Pho's over to the new template. I read a couple pieces on it, but apparently missed the big red warning label: DANGER! NEW TEMPLATE WILL EAT YOUR BLOGROLL.

I've put a fair amount of time into updating the roll and now it's gone and must be reassembled. Grr. It also ate my banners, MTB ads, everything. I've yet to look into how to add html code in the new set up which is a dumbed-down drag and drop layout page. I'm currently accepting as an article of faith that I'll be able to do all that. In any event, the sidebar will be under construction for some time.

I found it was easy to copy and paste stuff from the old blog template into the New and Highly Improved Blogger. And once you get the blog roll in there, it is very easy to update.
