One more thing...

I added a Google Adsense box to see what all the fuss is about.

By the way, the Labels don't show as a drop down box, but I have a "Show/Hide all" link that can show all the Labels and clicking on them updates the contents of the box.

How did you get labels all the sudden? You didn't have those before, did ya?

I didn't see any adsense stuff.

How are you doing the list of songs and movies?

Did you see the earlier post? The new beta Blogger contains a lot of updates, and Labels are the part that I was looking forward to the most.

I had to apply to Adsense, so my application will be reviewed before I think it really becomes "active." Right now there is that little block on the right about Hurricane relief as their default "ad," but I think once one is approved the ad content can be changed/customized.

Another item I like with the beta is more control over the layout of your blog (which I haven't changed much), including new Page Elements, such as Lists. Right now I just manually added content to the lists, but I *think* that they can be coded to pull from other sources, like my Netflix queue or something else - I just haven't had the time to dive into researching that.

Hmmm...my RSS feed from Yahoo was wonked up. I saw your "One More Thing..." post, but the next post was listed as "Worst Day Evar". Today's version is correct.

It could have been the transition from "vanilla" blogger to the beta. My blog was down for a time and I had to wait until Google emailed me to start working on it again.

Now that I've gotten a taste of Labels, I really don't want to work without them. That was the biggest drawback to using Blogger when I started this thing.

I like how your labels have the number of posts in ()'s. I'm going to "borrow" that idea for mine, but I'm also going to use the number to size the font, so well traveled labels will be large and barely used labels will be small.

I can license the parenthetical number technology to you - let's get together and discuss fees.

I would advise against using the number of posts as the font size...I have 75 posts under my Singapore category!
