So frustrated with this blog!

Hello @Simona, I too am frustrated with the new blog and hoping that we will see changes soon -- sooner than soon, like yesterday! I realize that some of the frustration is getting used to the new settings feature, with basic functions organized differently and having to hunt for them, and at some point I'll get used to that, although it's going to be a real PIA for my clients who aren't as actively blogging as I am. Six things are particularly annoying today: 1. Having to turn off comments on each individual post, and then having a line displayed that comments are turned off. Why announce that? My clients don't want to have to moderate comments all the time, and displaying that comments are disabled makes them look unfriendly. There should be the option to turn off comments AND not notify the world of that decision. I've already had a client complain about this. 2. The pop up text editing tool bar has been drastically reduced in the new blog, and simple changes such as to font size, color, style, line spacing, etc, can't be made without leaving the blog editor and going to settings. This is an enormous frustration and waste of time going back and forth until the appearance you want is finally achieved. 3. Relocating the tools for inserting photos, videos, galleries, dividing lines to the bottom of the blog is now extremely inconvenient. 4. There seems to be no way to style photos -- adding frames, making them round or oval instead of square. This is a nice feature I use often on my old blogs and one of several reasons I won't be converting my old blogs to the new one. 5. I hate, hate, hate how the categories are displayed -- they are either strung horizontally across the top of the blog page or you can turn off the display. Period, that's it. And no tag cloud ability. Sigh. Instead of making these a design feature -- see DeWriteSites.com -- it's just an easily overlooked visual clutter of undifferentiated words on the page. Ugh. 6. No ability to customize the social share buttons. G+is obsolete, LinkedIn and Instagram would seem essential, maybe others. And no ability to upload stylized icons to fit with the overall design of the site. Can't even change their color. Nor can they be turned off / undisplayed. Thanks for listening and passing this feedback on. I'm looking forward to when I can be a raving fan about the new blog.
