I pruned a lot of old dead blogs, left some just because I liked them. If anyone knows of new blogs or blogs I don't list, please let me know.
Blogger has made some big changes in recent weeks -- I've held off commenting on them but after several weeks of blogging with the new functionality I've decided the "upgrade" is detestable. When I blockquote something, for example, and then hit ENTER to create a line, Blogger puts in a whole new set of [blockquote][/blockquote] that makes even more space. After I change the color of a quoted block of text Blogger also puts in needless color commands in the empty lines, creating unnecessary spaces between paragraphs and which have to be hand-pruned. Etc. On the whole the new blogging functions are clunkier and slower. Further, the new functionality doesn't give me the all-important ability to make tables -- I still have to input them by hand. Why?
