是的！我剛才在另一台電腦試圖登入Blogger時，突然發現登入欄位有些許變動。”Sign in with your Blogger or Google Account” 於是我好奇的以 Google Account 登入，登入後隨即被導引至beta.blogger.com，第一個畫面是詢問是否登記個人資料並creat a blog，或者”Already a Blogger user? Switch now“。也就是說如果你已經有Blogger帳號，你可以透過該網頁進行轉換合併，並加入beta的行列。可惜筆者運氣差了點，點入後它才告訴我，很遺憾地目前只開放少數名額進行轉換，請下次再來。XD 有時候該網頁會出現 404錯誤，或許官方還正在調整中。
警告：有意進行轉換(switch)的朋友請不要進行”Create a blog”，否則登記完帳號後就變成獨立的新帳號，無法再進行轉換了。(還好我有另一個Google Account = =”) (純屬猜測，但官方似乎不會這麼做:P)
既然暫時無法switch，那我們也可以先用Google Account登入Blogger in beta後，來新增一個blog，搶先試用beta新功能。來先瞧瞧官方的說法：
Today we’re launching a new version of Blogger in beta! You’ve been asking for ways to do more with your blog, and you can with this new release. With the beta you can:
- Categorize your posts with labels
- Control who can read your blog
- Change the appearance and content of your blog with your mouse instead of HTML
Take a look at the tour to see all the new things you can do (well, a lot of the new things … they didn’t all fit in the tour).
As we release this version, we’re limiting the number of people who can switch over. (You’ll see a link on your Blogger dashboard when you are able to move.) Eventually, of course, everyone will be able to transition their blogs to the new version. Thanks in advance for your patience as we roll it out.
If you can’t wait, you can create a new account on the beta now and make a new blog to test out the new features. Because the new Blogger uses Google Accounts, you can use your existing Google login, or create a new one. (Later, you’ll be able to merge your current and beta accounts, and have all your blogs in one place.)
We’ll be posting more about the new version in the coming days, but for now, we really want to know what you think. You can post on the Blogger Help Group or via or feedback form. — [08/14/2006 02:08 PM]
