Re Beta

I've had a lot of questions regarding beta blogger. From what I gather, it's an updated version of blogger which gives you a lot more choice to customise your template. The only thing is, I tried to do that and it worked to a certain extent but when I tried to save the colour scheme I wanted, it wouldn't save the changes. So...when nothing else works read the instructions!!

The one advantage it has is that now, Granny and Merle can comment directly rather than send me emails as before. I wasn't able to comment directly to Reminem once I changed over, but when I figured out what I was supposed to do, I overcame that glitch. Apart from that, I'm really not sure why it is better. I will need to play around a little more and then maybe I can tell you. Anyway, why is everyone asking me about beta??? Lol. I have no more knowledge than anyone else...sheez!

However, I feel that eventually we will all be on beta and possibly, once we get the hang of it, we will wonder what we ever worried about. Well, I live in hope!!

So there you go, people - that's my limited knowledge about beta and the only reason I swapped was because I couldn't upload a picture and got a message asking me if I would like to upgrade. I guess that will teach me to say "yes" to silly questions!

Have a good week everyone and I will catch up around about Thursday or Friday - got to work extra again...

Beta is BETTER. Thanks for your comments. I bought a book be Kahlil Gibran, so must read it. Thank you for the kind words Robyn, I try to please!! Take care, Love, Merle.

I think I'm just going to wait until they have all the Beta kinks out before I attempt to change! Have heard many horror stories about losing past posts, etc...yikes! Don't work too hard!! Hugs xox

Why! Oh! Why do 'they' have to keep changing things just when I begin to get the hang of the 'old' ways? I'm sticking my heels in! ;)

I will probably be one of the last to change to beta. I'm kind of lazy about things that make me have to think. That's one of the reasons I like gardening so much. I can do it without thinking. :)

Thanks for coming by my blog and commenting. I hope you are having a nice week.

Hi Robyn, So sorry you lost all your limks. The saying in my family is "If all else fails, read the instructions" so like you I would have had strife too. You have done
very well getting changed over. So I hope all goes well for you now. The last words I liked were "What duck?"
Take care my friend,Love, Merle.
