Google is Giving Blogger a Makeover and She's Gonna Be Purdy


Have you heard? Blogger's getting a makeover this year!

As a Blogger blogger, all I can say is it's about time! w00t!

The Blogger interface has always seemed a bit like the juvenile younger sibling to Wordpress. But no more (well almost). We have to wait until the vaguely described "later this year" for the new functionality to be released. And it can't come too quickly.

Here are the two prime screen shots released at SXSW last week:

The new post editor screen:

The new Blogger dashboard:

And so with that, Blogger will look like more serious, grown up blogging platform. Maybe all those Wordpress people will stop snubbing us... well, ok, maybe not... ;)
