So far, so good.

I just know I'm going to regret saying this, but so far the new version of Blogger is working just fine. All my links moved across and the ClustrMap thingy still works too.

Couple of changes you'll notice:-
First, the new template and colour scheme. I fancied a change from the mainly-black look I had before and found this quite easy on the eye. I hope you like it too. If I get inundated with comments demanding a return of the old template I'll put it back, but otherwise it'll stay like this, at least for a while.
Second, I think the Comments link has changed. There's no pencil icon anymore, just a link saying "x comments" at the foot of each post. If you want to leave a comment just click the word "comments". Clicking the envelope icon lets you email a particular story to a friend.
Final - and my favourite - change I've noticed is the Archives section, where you now have a little triangle next to each month and the number of posts in the archive for that month in brackets. Just click the triangle and that month's archive will expand to show you all the post titles. Much easier now to browse back in time - if any of you other than me are that way inclined.

Let me know what you think of the new look.

LOVING the green look - but then again I would ;-)
Belated Congrats on the 20th wedding anniversary. Didn't realise I had friends who were so old... Or should that be, I didn't realise you were married so young?!

Thanks for the good wishes Mand, and yes, I WAS a child bride!

I actually thought the teamplate was bluey-grey, but with two people now calling it "the green look" maybe it's time to get my eyes tested.

So, that's one in favour and one against... any more?

From your colour blind friend I like the blue-grey, Green, gun metal color scheme. The black was too hard to read offline on the plane, even the guy sitting next to me was complaining.
