The new Blogger interface
Nowadays, software designers are encouraging you to use the new interface or, if you prefer, revert back to classic. Eventually the classic is going to go away, so it's best to learn the new interface. If we could all vote, we would prefer to leave things the way they were, but that's not how it works. It's kind of like one day getting up to go to work to find that the city has moved around all of the streets and the old streets will be going away in a few months. It makes no sense, but you have no choice.
The new blogger interface is typical of the type of update that is done with web-based applications. Part of it is new, and part of it is old. That is, part of it is familiar, and part of it is annoying and time-consuming to re-learn. Not the end of the world, just a nuisance. And of course, as they find mistakes in the new interface, they will move things around again.
So, I recommend that you bite the bullet and learn the new Blogger interface. If it makes you feel better, go rant somewhere, but you can't stop them from doing this. The only time I ever saw a *new and improved* product go back to the classic product, was back in the 1980s with Coca-Cola. Those were the days!
