I think having the "good old feature" back is a good idea, but for those not to savvy and/or not wanting to customize much, the new Beta of Blogger is easier to work with than the old.
As I have moved to the beta version of Blogger for Jefferson City Sports, I am ready to move this site to the Beta as well. The biggest difference is working with the template as the posting and settings aren't that much difference. Hey Blogger, let me switch this account now. I know I will be able to in time, and I am sure getting all the accounts moved over is a huge effort to coordinate without even thinking about individual requests to go ahead and get moved. As I have tried it for the one account I want it even more.
