Tweaking Blogger While I Await The Curse of The New Interface

I'm starting this post off using "Deepest Sender" - it looks like I may need to save some text files bearing certain bits of code if I am going to rely on DS for posting to blogspot. This is assuming the new interface is the only way to work on my blog otherwise. From my past experience with the interface, it is not something I'm looking forward to. I'm going to have to figure out how to insert images. I think I may need the actual "path" to do that: something to work on when I have more time... There's a button to "set colour of selected text"...

Now I'm using RAVEN - I see that I am able to open a previous post for additional editing - a good thing... Raven offers a more standard way of inserting an image... (see below!)


This is a screengrab of Raven updating to include previous posts and other info from my blog -material I will be able to access OFFLINE! Way cool!

There are XHTML features and other buttons I have yet to tinker with - I'm going to republish this post and the finish it off from the old beloved soon-to-die (hopefully not) Blogger Interface... and keep in mind I am doing Deepest sender and Raven via Dial-Up on my old faithful WinME Computer! It is just as fast as broadband when using these two wonderful tools!

small PROBLEM : I had to go in and resize the image h255xw410 ... Raven allows one to add the following:

  • Categories (Labels)
  • Upload only thumbnail images (I may try that next time I post)
  • Ping (A variety of services)
  • Tag Sites - must investigate this one a little further
  • Trackbacks
  • Tagwords (not sure what this one does - yet)

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.

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.
