Migration To Blogger Beta

Blogger Beta has been out for slightly less than 2 months. I made my first Beta blog post on August 16.

The Beta rollout to date has been, to put it politely, chaotic. And has inspired various literary masterpieces in the help forums.

The question going thru everybody’s mind, and asked here frequently, is

When must we all migrate to Beta? Weeks, months, years?

I would personally prefer the latter.

Today, we see that question answered, in Google Blogger Help: An Open Question to “Blogger Employee”.

We’re looking forward to migrating all users to beta in the next few months, so, as there’s limited time left with regular Blogger,

So, there’s the answer. Not one that brings joy.

Somehow, Blogger Staff, you better start listening to your unpaid staff. You need to develop a business model, with some real support, and think about how to rollout this product in a way that doesn’t bring so much hair pulling. And it’s too late for me, but some of the Bloggers would appreciate that you guys get your heads out of where the sun doesn’t shine and listen carefully.

Now I don’t normally write stuff in haste, so I hope you will appreciate the urgency (and raw content) that I applied to writing the above opener.

Since I can only write a bit at a time, check my next post in this series, as I describe migration strategies. You can also read my bud Roberto’s more colourful discussion, in Roberto’s Report: What Does Migrating Involve?.
