Blogger 2.0

Some people are getting re-posts of my older blog posts. As far as I can tell, this has started since I moved to the new version of Blogger. When I upgraded this blog to Blogger 2.0, I gained the ability to tag or label my posts. Very cool. I also lost my formatting in all 240 of my older posts. Not very cool. As a result, I'm going through my older posts one by one to manually fix the formatting and add tags/labels to the content. If I modify any one of my posts, either textually or by adding a tag or label, Blogger sees this as an update, and treats this old post, as a new one. I don't know how to get around this. Further, not everyone sees this behavior.

Bottom line: As I work through fixing up my older posts, you might get a re-post of old content. I'm not trying to spam you with re-posts, just trying to clean up my blog. I guess, with Blogger the adage, "You get what you pay for," applies. Maybe in the future I'll consider moving to MoveableType or something like that, but right now, that's not in the cards. Thanks for being patient.

Sucks that you're suffering problems with the upgrade. I have spent a bit of time in the Blogger development group at Google Groups:

The development team from Blogger is pretty responsive - I wonder if they might be able to help you salvage the formatting in one fell swoop. Perhaps they've kept a backup and can use your blog as a test case for preventing this bug for others.

i hope blogger should be able to let us create our own template easier with blogger editor.

if that sure exist then, blogger will defeat wordy
