It's been called a lot of things, including "unfriendly piece of dung" and "a major league joke" --- Google still doesn't get it! I just saw this on a blog on Monday morning "Earlier, I switched to the new Blogger interface when typing this post. The new Dashboard looks very unfriendly if you ask me.

(2) When I changed it so that only a few "teaser" lines appeared in the reader, they came back for just a minute, until G-Mail's built-in reader appeared, which overrides my rules and conveys the full article (or most of it) and again, my blog loses when it comes to traffic count and impressions... and of course, ADS don't come through on the RSS end
(3) In 2012, unless you're SELLING stuff via your blog, email subscribers are really not necessary.
I rest my keyboard.
