Dear anyone book head reading this -

I caved and downloaded the new MSN. If you live in my house (or are unfortunate enough to know me well) you know how much of a huge thing this is for me. Part of me LOVES the excitement of a new format for anything – how is it different? Is it going to be better? What cool stuff can I do with it now?

… But there’s another part of me, usually a much bigger part, who groans when you get that ‘new download’ alert. What if it’s not as good? What if it’s ugly (I like things that look pretty)? What if it doesn’t do what I want it to do.

Yep. I don’t handle change well. It’s usually a good few weeks – long after everyone has already changed over to the new system – that I finally give in and download it. Then I whinge for a few weeks about the changes before I finally get over it, get attached, and freak out all over again when the new one comes out.

So why am I rambling on about this when I have a pile of books that I really should have reviewed already? Well, two reasons, one I’m still feeling too icky (did I mention I was under the weather? – no matter) to put any real thought into anything, and two, the new MSN comes with a blog writer-thingy (yes, that’s the technical term), and I wanted to see how it works.

So what do you think? Can you tell the difference if I post outside of Blogger?

Hi! Great post :-) The only difference I see is that the image border seems to be closer to the text, but it's still readable. Good luck with the new software, hope it works out for you!

I'm the same way about changes. There's a little button at the top of my screen that says "Get IE8 Now!" but I'm afraid to push it. The last time I downloaded an update for media player I made my hubby back the computer up a few days so that it wasn't there anymore, I disliked it that much!

Melissa: You're right, it is closer. I think I can live with that though, as long as it's still readable. I officially appoint you "Official Picture Border Checker" - if you ever see it going over the text give me a yell, k? LOL you don't really have to do that... but if you did, hey, you'd get a crown or something.

Penny: I KNOW!! I'm too scared to push it too. Here's what you do. You go find someone (I picked my brother) and just casually mention that there's a new explorer. Wait for them to get all excited and download it and just check it out on their computer. I haven't checked it out yet, but if it helps, my brother didn't like it and turned it back.
