Out with the OLD & in with the NEW

The new blogger interface that is! Have you switched yet? This sunday (April 1st) you won't have choice! I noticed Blogger's new interface while working with customers and installing designs. I noticed new blogs automatically had the new interface and switching was optional for us who have had blogger for a while. I resisted the change at first only because I became comfortable with the old interface and learning to use the new one freaked me out a little bit. Here's the old....
and the new...

(In case you are wondering why I have 3 sample blogs?! I use them for my design business)
 It was a bit hard figuring out where everything was while installing a new design but I did notice one new feature that makes things a ton easier for blog designers such as myself! Creating new pages for navigation bars was a pain before! But now blogger made it super easy by having a tab just for pages! No need to go into new post and clicking over to new page. Also they made it so that you can link a link (huh?) directly to a tab title without having to use custom navigation titles...

Overall I like the new Blogger interface, it is much cleaner & modern looking I just need to get used to it! 
How about you? Have you switched? What do you think?
