The Bloggers New View
Stepping away from Writing and related news for a moment, Blogger is giving us a chance to change how we, as blog owners, present the face of our content to the world, and for readers to view it.... beyond simply changing templates and backgrounds.
Rather than try to explain this, let your fingers do the clicking.
Go to http://pagesforsmallwages.blogspot.com/view/
... or any other favourite Blogger URL and add /VIEW at the end of the link, and explore the view options presented.
These views require a current browser (Internet Explorer 8+, Firefox 3.5+, Chrome, Safari, Opera, etc..). Many elements of these views will not work should you have an older browser.
In all views, search is available in the upper right hand corner. Clicking on the ">" arrow in the very top left of the header bar will slide the header bar across and allow you to choose different views for the current blog as well as type in a new blog URL.
There is also a feedback link for each view.
Which view do you like best? Do you prefer one view over another for different blogs?
Would you like the option of setting a default view for all blogs or for individual blogs?
Is there a different view format you'd like to see?
Let the folks at Google Blogger know what you think.
