From the Editor’s Desk
It is a nice enhancement and I really loved it.Blogger doesn’t allow you to revert back to the old editor so you don’t really have any option.Just try to understand these features and work with it.I am sure that you will love these features as well.
Don’t hesitate to share your views about this enhancement with us through your comments.
