Remember, you can select any one of the seven different Dynamic Views from the pull-down menu in the top left corner.
Here are some of my initial thoughts:
- I love how clean and crisp the dynamic views look. They reduce the clutter and place my content at the forefront.
- I'm a big fan of how the reader can personalize their experience by switching between any one of the seven different Dynamic views.
- I like how it shows how many Tweets or Facebook likes each post has received, and that you can click those icons to immediately share a post.
- The search function seems to only search for words on the posts that are displayed on the page. When I use the search function on a blog, I want it to search through an entire blog's archives.
- I don't see any of the Dynamic Views allowing the reader to easily view and select from the blog's labels/tags.
- I miss some of the widgets like my Revolver Maps Visitor Globe, pageviews per week, labels/tags, but I know that some of this stuff is precisely what clutters up a blog. I think I'd like to be able to place all this stuff in a separate page.
- I tried to place the Revolver Maps Visitor Globe HTML code in a separate page, while this worked with the classic templates, this did not work for Dynamic View.
Overall, I think I am mostly impressed with Blogger's Dynamic Views but there are a couple issues that need to be addressed. The good news is that it looks like Blogger is already addressing some of these issues.
So what do you think? Should I stick with this new look?
