The Old Blogger Interface Will Be Removed



Wow - Google being extra mean about this - you WILL be force-fed a new interface, like it or not!

Maybe finally it's time to download your complete blog and move it elsewhere?

  1. I don't like its new interface. too many features shown, puzzled me. I like the old interface, quite simple and to the point.

  2. I agree that it sucks. I like my old Blogger interface, and the new one is too bloated and strange. I probably won't want to return to my blogs if that happens.

  3. I've found I have to go through a bunch of extra steps to do things that were simple before. I also have to manually type in HTML code for margin settings and titles I give my graphic files don't show up in preview. I also have to add a line of code if I want to go back to the default font in mid-post. It also dumps uploaded graphic files arbitrarily in mid post, even in the middle of a word, regardless of where the cursor is.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
