Last year, the Blogger bods asked their users what features and updates they would like to see on Blogger. Now they are busy updating the interface and features, and if you currently use Blogger as your blogging platform, you can try out one of the new features for yourself! It allows you and your readers to access and view the posts in your blog in dynamic ways. You can read more about it here at Blogger Buzz All you have to do to access the new dynamic views of your blog or someone else’s is to add to the URL address of the blog /view It’s that simple! Not only that, but if you use Chrome as your browser, you can also add an extension to Chrome which will automatically allow you to see all of your friends blogs in the new dynamic views!
The dynamic views use the latest web technology which allow you to view blogs in five new ways and with obvious benefits.
1. Infinite Scrolling: Read more posts without having to reload or click on a new page.
2. New Layouts: Different views suited to different types of blogs.
3. Speed: Download any images as you view them, not all at once in advance.
4. Interactivity: There are now more ways to experience and engage with blog content.
There are five different views of either your own blog or someone else’s blog and these are as follows.
Here the posts are listed in a sidebar whilst the content is displayed in the larger area.
In this view, all posts are on Flipcards which can be flipped to show more information about that post. The reader clicks on the Flipcard in order to read the post they are interested in.
In this view, your posts are shown in different sizes (hence the name) and can be clicked on by the reader in order to read each one.
This one is particularly useful if you have a photo blog. Photos are shown in a line with captions underneath.
Lastly we have Timeslide which shows your latest posts in the far left column, then earlier posts listed in the middle and even older posts in the far right. Readers simply click on a post they are interested in reading.
Blogger are also interested in users feedback which you can give here at https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dG5vUHotaWxTdnpMTkk1RkNXMkFtVkE6MQ
Try them all out on your own blog and on your friends blogs. You don’t have to use them if you don’t like the new dynamic views. I’m looking forward to seeing what other new features Blogger will be introducing soon!
TG P.s In order to use these new views, you do need to have Feeds enabled on your blog. Here is some more info about how to enable Dynamic Views on your blog http://www.google.com/support/blogger/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1227173&ctx=go
