Blogger has added a lot of features for control of text. That's great. However, I wonder if it will lead to poorer design as people mix and match what looks good to them, but is really too busy. What's the right amount of differentiation?

I like the new 'insert link' interface.

(The new interface has 'upload an image', but it only works for FTP or BlogSpot Plus users. However, don't forget, Windows users can use the Hello Bloggerbot for free, and it works pretty slick. Google recently acquired the makers of Hello Bloggerbot, Picasa. Not sure what that does for Google, besides help Blogger. They say:

"Picasa enables users to easily manage and share digital photographs, and its technologies complement Google's ongoing mission to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful," said Jonathan Rosenberg, vice president, Product Management. "Picasa is an innovator in the field of digital photography, and we're excited that the Picasa team is joining Google."
Not as excited as the Picasans are to be joining Google before the IPO.)
