I have seen some changes to the blog site of late, and some very useful functions. Firstly, the picture upload is very user friendly now, with options for sizing as well as positioning of the photo. And there is an "Add Caption" button which is really neat.
Then there is the comments control page:-
The new page layout options are also great, and rearranging same is a doddle. No more having to stuff around with the code, everything is click / drag / re-size....
I think they can add more options with regards the font. I personally like the Comic Sans MS, but it's not available - yet.
Basically, the developers have done a great job of improving the blogger experience. I Just hope that it remains a free application, and does not become a billable function, like so many other things do.
