March 17, 2019: I wrote this long ago on a different site and I’m just adding it here:
As if I don`t have enough to do, and enough JS journals to mess around and keep track with!
Many of you JS`ers know me already. I`ve been hanging around JS for almost 3 years now under the journal Westy! Yep, ole Westy just can`t get enough of blogging!!
Anyway, the introducing of the new interface nick-named „Peanuts“ caused a lot of controversy…. some liked it, some hated it, some could care less. What bothers me the most is that too many „old timers“ were jumping ship, and I think that`s a pity!
We don`t blog because of an interface!! We blog for ourselves, to just write stuff down, or to communicate with other people! And JS has some of the best people of any journals sites I`ve visited so far.
As with anything new, it needs getting used to. So, I thought I`d try something. In this journal I want to demonstrate some of the ways to NAVIGATE around the new features… so that`s why the name The Naviagtor!
I don`t use all the features, I don`t know all the features, so this is hopefully a place where EVERYONE can share their JS knowledge!
So, help me along and get this thing on the road. Since I live in Europe, my timezone is different then most of yours, which means I won`t always reply right away, besides real life getting in the way!
Feel free to ask questions and also to answer questions other people ask in the comment section.
The next entry will be about configuring the homepage…. perhaps tomorrow.

OK—I am from the google school of simplicity. I liked the old interface because of that. But, I believe JS is a unique blog-site and I don’t mind changing when necessary.

Great Idea. Im with burstmode, the reason I liked the old interface becuase it was easy.

Wow, what a great idea..I love the background, hehe. 🙂
Me and peanut will get along just fine as long as they keep the old editor. I have yet to learn how to post a picture in the new one! Maybe this is the place to find out. 🙂

I hope they keep the old editor, too…. I just can’t get used to the new one and I also have problems posting pictures with it. Yes, I did try! But I guess there are some tricks old „dogs“ CAN’T learn! heehee
