This is just so great!!

Now, I have to bear with Blogger lack of features for so long. Simple thing like labels has been missing from Blogger even though it is a common basic features in all its competitors.

Now I understand that being the earliest blog apps in the market, Blogger host gigantic amount of data, that any change in the features will lead to huge impact on lot of people. But to have a simple thing like labeling, I have to add in a third-party service, labelr, and to have blogroll, another third-party service, blogrolling. And it is fast becoming a frustration. Not long ago, Blogger finally come out with all these features, but in a beta version. Which mean my existing blogs will stay at how it is, only new blog created in beta will have all the features. And no definite date is given as to when we will past the beta phase.

Although rumours has it that if you are lucky enough, you will see an option to convert your blog to the beta version. But for months I expecting seeing something like that when I login to Blogger, only to end up in disappointments.

But good thing happen when you expect the least, and so, as I login Blogger today, ta...ta...



Finally.....sure enough, without hesitating, I just click on the Switching link...





And few more steps...hurray...now my blogs are finally upgraded to the new version. I am a happy man.

Note: big thanks to Labelr (thanks, Amit )and blogrolling for their service, making labeling and adding links possible even in those dark, sad days...
