I've been noticing the option to upgrade to Blogger Beta for a while now and so decided to search for some blogs that have taken the plunge. Hearing about all these new templates and great new features, I was quite looking forward to seeing a bunch dazzling blogs thrown up by the new Google Blog Search.
Is it just me, or has every single person that's upgraded, picked an old style template? I've not seen one single blog so far that looks any different than before. Maybe the new templates look worse than the old ones or possibly it's because those that have spent time customising their blogs over the years dare not upgrade through fear of it all going Pete Tong?
We're holding off here for the time being, whatever you think about the design of our blog, we've spent a lot of time making it look the way it does and we'd like to see a couple of blogs that have upgraded to Blogger Beta, survived and actually look better before we press the button.
