More Beta Blog Info

This is from Blogger help.

Why can't I switch to Blogger in beta?

While the new version of Blogger is still in beta, some users with certain types of blogs will not be able to switch to it. We'll be adding support for these blogs as soon as possible, so everyone can join in the fun. But for now, if you have any of the following on your account, you'll need to hold off for a bit:

  • A blog publishing via FTP to a non-BlogSpot server.
  • A blog with a Plus upgrade (we stopped offering this upgrade a couple years ago, so this will not affect many people).
  • ***A team blog.***
  • A blog with a mobile device associated with it.

Note that, even if your blog is eligible to switch, you may not have the link to do so on your dashboard. We are starting out by just switching over a limited number of accounts, but we'll add more and more as time goes on. However, if you still want to try out Blogger in beta, what you can do is to visit and create a new account. Later on, you'll be able to merge this account with your original Blogger account.

Thanks for your patience, and we promise it will be worth the wait!

*This is why I havn't been able to switch yet I'm sure. I have 3 blogs attached to me. 2 of them team blogs!! So Liz, Mandy, Shari I know you were wondering!! Mystery solved!!

i have no idea what you are talking about.... does this affect my blog in any????

It will affect anyone using Blogger. Blogger is changing versions, updating, and everyone will be switched over eventually. Many people can already switch over. If you can you will see a blue button on your dashboard about beta blogger. It will walk you through it. You don't have to yet, but will have to at some point. The new version is actually pretty cool and looks like it will be alot easier. But you will have to re-do you template, links ect.

Not redoing templates and such!! James helped me with that! How will I ever do it again!!

Working with your template on Beta is SO much easier!! It's drag and drop and it prompts for the info it needs!!
It's really pretty cool!! I'm looking forward to a change.
