I finally got over the initial frustration at changing over from the old Blogger to the new, and it ain't all that bad (well it was, but see below to find out why it ain't no mo). In fact, nothing is really different, except now I have a snazzy new Google account to sign in with. As for anyone who is interested in contributing to this "forum" (I'd rather not call it a blog, since I hoped this would be an open discussion forum type thing), and has a Blogger account, but hasn't switched to the "new Blogger" yet, here's the deal-i-o...

As far as I understand it, since I started this blog under the new Blogger platform/interface, anyone who contributes to this blog must also be a "new Blogger" user - that is to say, you will have to sign in using a Google account, or create a new one, which is free.

Also, from what I understand, I do not beleive that changing over to new Blogger status will affect your old Blogger status in any significant way, except you will sign in using a Google account instead. I don't think it will affect other group Blogger blogs that still operate under the old Blogger rules. Say that ten times fast.

If you have any worries as to whether changing to new Blogger will affect your old Blogger group blogs, you could start a new Google account that is not associated with your other "old Blogger" account. Blogger/Google is aiming to eventually switch everyone to the new system anyway, so doing this may be superfluous... which brings me to one more issue...

Do you have a gmail account? If you do, beware - when you create a Google account, it may ask if you have a gmail address (because technically, if you have a gmail address, that IS also a Google account). I have gmail, and I really, really hated the fact that when I converted to new Blogger. I ended up permanently connecting my Blogger account to my gmail. I dunno, call me finicky, but I just hated that. So you know what I did? I deleted my gmail account LOL! Well, first I sent myself another gmail invite to another email. ANYHEW - just thought I would give a heads up to those who may have gmail, and maybe also the old Blogger account - if you don't want your new Blogger/Google account to be a permanently attachment to your gmail account, I recommend creating a BRAND NEW Google account (NOT associated with gmail - you can use any other email for a Google account, of which you can change whenever you want. If you use gmail however, it is PERMANENT). Some people might love this integration. I might have, except I ddn't know it would be a permanent thing - and I use(d) that gmail account for stuff I'd rather not be connected in any way to my online fangirl life. *Blush*

So there are all the warnings, bells, and whistles. I'm going to start sending out some invites to this thing soon, and if you somehow miraculously got directed here (I will be trying to campaign for the show some, before the end of February rating reviews), and are wanting to contribute; either comment here or contact me for an invite. I'll... um... put up some sort of contact info here soon (may open yet another email for it) - or if you know my from my starwars.com blog, try the contact blogger function there.

Like I said before, I'll be trying to jazz up this blog/site a lttle more, and hopefully it will be a fun place to kick back and rant about skin jobs and other BSG stuff. I see this being a slow start... the Blogger change over thing, I'm busy (I have two and a half jobs and am a student), everyone is busy... but I just felt like I needed another outlet for one of my new and growing fandoms. My name is jkthunder... come, join me by my fire. Maybe I'll need a cool new BSG SN.

Season 3 is rocking! Scuse me while I watch yet another replay of the latest episode "Taking a Break From All Your Worries"
