~ We're Out of Beta ~

I signed into my Blogger Dashboard today to do a minor tweak of my template and the above message greets me. I'm thinking, "Holy cow!! I had no idea that they had only so much Beta available. I never saw it mentioned that it would be limited" I was eventually going go convert. Honest, I was. I was waiting till I had time to mess with my blog, if there was trouble with the conversion.

So now I'm depressed, tough out of luck, out in the rain without an umbrella, on my motorcycle without any gas, in a mall without my credit card, out the whole enchilada, high and dry, up a creek without a paddle ... Oh, you know what I mean, lol. I was looking forward to categorizing my posts for easier reference and now... sigh.

Oh well, there goes my day (as my eldest loves to say, lol).

Hope things go better in your part of the world,

Biker Betty

Just as well with the Beta thing. It really messed me up. Some blogs can't be posted on since if they were/are Beta. It was just too messy for me. In any case, hope you are warm there...little chilly here.

Did you ask them to check in the back? Usually they say they're out, but if you get them to look there is always one more in the back. Of course they didn't do layaways this year, so...

I know now that I am not converting. I'm a creature of habit so I'll keep my blog the way it is, no conversion for this kid.

Pamela said...

Lol, I'll push if you steer! hehe! I felt the same way, what do you mean they are out of Beta! :)

Hi Pamela & Giest, I might as well be funny, since frustration won't get me anywhere, lol.

Hi KT, I remember all the trouble you had and that kept me from converting for a while there. Most people had no problems, so I was about ready to jump in and convert. Oh well.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for stopping by. They must have had a big interest. I wish they had let us know they were running low.

Hi Allen, Maybe I should try that, lol.

Hi Jose, I thought you converted and that's why you lost your top picture on your blog.

Hi Pamela, I take it you never converted and got the message too? lol.


...Thanks everyone for stopping by and have a great day,

Biker Betty :)

Hmmm... I was very lucky then...whenI converted, I didn't have any problems whatsoever! *whew* :) I like my new beta blogger - it's a lot easier for me to add links & stuff..... computer nitwit thatI am, lol!

Betty!
Just dropped by to say "hi", and to thank you for remembering Mitch and I the past few weeks. It's settling down a bit here, so I'm out visiting this evening. So sorry about your Beta thing; I love blogging; hate the technicalities of it, though. I love your hubby's new bike! Way cool. Hang in there; the snow will melt soon and you two can hit the road again! Have a great week,
DK
P.S. A very happy (belated) birthday to you, too!

We're out of beta means that there is no more beta. The new blogger has been released and they are finished testing it.

Actually KT you can post to any of them. If you converted to the NEW blogger you just have to make sure you click on the hyper link that says "sign in with your Google Account" and it will give you a different sign in box.

I've bene on the new blogger for weeks and love it :) (I do onsite blogger consulting for a small fee LOL)

Dawn said...

Thanks everyone for you comments and helps. I did convert and now most of you are "anonymous," lol. Because of the pattern, I'd guess all the anonymous are on the new blogger.

Thanks again and take care,
Betty :)

Teena said...

I crossed over last month. So far, so good :)

Biker Betty said...

Hi Teena,
Except for almost most of my comments before converting going anonymous, I love all the new features I have been able to explore. I'm glad I switched.

Thanks for stopping by :)
