I finally bit the bullet and upgraded my template to the new Blogger. Please let me know if anything is not working. I am seeing some glitches but hopefully the problems that some people were having viewing the blog in IE will go away.
I tried to reproduce the old format as much as possible, although there are some font and color changes.
For some reason, Feedburner (which should add a Digg and Reddit and email link at the end of each post) is still not working, and I seem to have lost my nifty tab icon graphic that looked like this: If anyone knows how to make these work in the new Blogger, please let me know.
UPDATE: Got the icon working. The Feedburner stuff is driving me nuts.
