I do like blogspot except for few things :

  1. No categories, I’m familiar with label in gmail but not label in blogspot beta icon smile Step by step moving from blogspot beta to wordpress blog
  2. No timestamp modification, I do try to use “future posting” but it’s show as immediately in blogspot not waiting for right moment.
  3. Performancing can’t upload image with blogspot beta.
