New Blogger Layout; for better or for worse?

Dedicated bloggers such as myself may have noticed that the GUI of Blogger, Google's massively popular blog-hosting platform has undergone some serious changes. But has Google's plan worked? Are these changes really needed and will the affect new and existing users? Read on to find out.

The first thing you notice when you sign in to your Blogger dashboard is that it is practically white. Yes readers, the new-and-supposedly-improved interface is quite blank. This may put some users off, but other users may argue that plain is the new beautiful and that blogger now has a professional look to it.

In terms of content, all the tabs are there, but the 'Earnings tab' is still under construction. Instead, Bloggers will have to use the old 'Monetize' tab. At first, you will find all the tabs on the side and the content in the middle. It may take a little getting used to, but thankfully, Google didn't scrap anything.

Overall, these changes make blogging with blogger an even more enjoyable experience and with it's sleek and fast interface, It's all you could expect from on of the biggest companies when it comes to the web.
