New WordPress Dashboard

So, here we are. I’ve known for some time (as I was proofreading a book in French on WordPress) that drastic changes were lying ahead for the WordPress admin screens. Today on WordPress.com, we’re discovering them — and I’m typing my first post in the new interface.

I’ll wait a few days to decide if I like it or not. Change is always disruptive, so the first reaction of resistance or reject should not be taken seriously. Already, I see things I like, from a functional point of view.

An Example: Quoting

Here is the way to make a quote:

Things always take longer than expected. In this case, it wasn’t actually finding the venue (which was done in 4 days from start to finish), but sitting down in front of this computer long enough to blog about. (Well, I’ve been sitting many long hours in front of this computer, dealing with things like budgets, designers, partners, and registration — just not blogging.)
