Blogger Announces New Dynamic Views Feature


Today Blogger announced five new dynamic view templates that Blogger users can soon use and customize. If you want to get a preview as to how your own Blogger-based blog might look with each of these views, simply type “http://[your blog url]/view” in your web-browser address bar, replacing [your blog url] with the url for your own Blogger site.

The new views include Flipcard, Mosaic, Sidebar, Snapshot and Timeslide.  My favorite so far for my personal genealogy blog, Destination: Austin Family is Mosaic:

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.

  1. Note that “These views require modern browsers such as Internet Explorer 8+, Firefox 3.5+, Chrome or Safari. Many elements of these views will not work should you have an older browser.”

  2. Maybe I’m reluctant to change, but the new views really don’t even look like blogs any more. I think I will stick with what I have for the time being.

  3. Maybe they will be more versatile when released. But I don’t care for them so far. If you desire to do any affiliate marketing, or have badges, they don’t seem to display either.
