Blogger Updates...

Looks like Blogger is going to switch things up within a few months! The new features are currently in Beta, but they're looking pretty good! Check out the list here and take a tour of the new features here.

If you can't be bothered, here are some of the new things that caught my eye:

Give your posts a category label so that you and your readers can easily sort by topic.

New ways to customize your template:
Drag and drop page elements and easily change your template's font and color scheme.

Create a Private Blog: You can choose who is allowed to view a blog via their email address.

New Templates!

More Feed Options:
Now you can have a feed for all the comments on your blog, and even individual feeds for all the comments on each separate post.

Instant publishing
Say goodbye to the dreaded “Publishing…” spinner. Now, when you make a new post or change any of your settings, your blog is updated and changes go live immediately; you don’t have to remember to republish!

One caveat - you can update your blog with these new features today but you both have to sign up for a Google Account (not needed if you're on Gmail already) and there are a few bugs, most notably anyone who haven't switched to the new format can't comment, you can't switch back, browsers other than IE and Firefox don't work, and the Edit HTML mode for your template is not currently accessible. Also, I say in a few months because blogger will be requiring ALL users to change to this new format once it's out of beta.
