Giving Back & Blogger Rant!

I don't think there is a greater feeling than giving. Sure getting is great, but giving is good for the soul. I just feel like it sticks with you longer. With that said, I was cleaning my bathroom and I came across plenty of products that I never got around to opening or using. Some are backups, some were bought during sales to be future gifts, and some I just completely forgot about.

I'll be giving all of the above to a girls' home and hopefully they will benefit a lot of younger girls. I know that these items will get the love that I never got around to showing them. :) If you are a beauty product hoarder like me, think about giving some of the products to those that it could truly benefit. Every little thing counts!

Now on to the superficial part of my post- Blogger's new interface! It is horrible, flat out horrible. I switched a month or so ago to try it out and switched back to the old one right away. Pictures were always formatted differently, code was being added to my entries, text was all over the place, and the dashboard was hideous. I even hate editing my pages because I know they use the new format!

I loved that Blogger had it where you could choose between the two, but now they are taking the old one away completely. I feel like they are going from something that is easy on the eyes and to use to something the complete opposite. Who does Blogger think it is? Facebook? Perhaps I'm in the minority to say that I hate the changes, but I can't say one good thing about it. Oh Blogger, how could you?

How do you feel about the new interface?

I've been using the new interface with blogger for over a year since it was first introduced and love it. It was a little odd at first but I prefer it to the old fashioned version that blogger was once.

Don't worry, you'll get used to it. It took me some time, but to be honest I barely even remember the old one anymore haha.

Aww what a great idea to give all of your unused products to a girls' home! I don't think there's one near where I live, I should do this too instead to giving my stuff away to people who won't even use them -_-

I agree with you on the new Blogger interface. I tried to get used to it before they force it on us, but no, it just won't work!

@Rachael and Anna- I hope you girls are right and that I'll come to prefer it!

@Christine- I hate being forced into change. And it seems that Blogger wasn't even prepared yet, because my blog list keeps having issues, pages aren't loading quickly, or I get the "service unavailable" page. Argh!

@Gaby- If there isn't a girls' home, you can always search for shelters for women. :) I think the new interface is completely a love or hate thing. Bleh!

I also don't like the new ''look'' but I kind of got use to it :)
