Does anyone else use Blogger to create their blog?

And if so, do you have all sorts of funny issues with it as I do?

For example when I insert a picture it'll (not always, but frequently) do weird things to either the typeface or the paragraph spacing or otherwise do weirdness to the layout.  Earlier I made a paragraph red just to remind me that it wasn't finished yet and I then had the devil's own job to make it ceased being red again later (even though it should just be as simple as highlighting the para and then selecting the desired colour from a palette).

I'm aware there's a new version of Blogger being rolled out - has anyone used it yet in beta, and does it resolve any of the above issues if so?

Cheers

I use blogger to blog (how's that for a sentence that sounds silly lol), and have since I started in 2012.  I honestly do so very little with formatting, I'm not sure I can help.  I picked a fun font at the start, and stick with that, and I occasionally shove pictures in (this past year I started including one at the top just for sharing interest, but every now and again I'll have pictures in the bulk of the post as well).  I have inserted links, and I prefer to replace text for them, but that is a pretty simple thing.

I do remember once I had pasted my text from some other program (I forget why, I think I was copying out a quote or something), and it messed up my font and I had to figure out how to fix that, but yeah, I'm mostly just a "let me write a bunch of stuff and now I'm done!" type of blogger, so all the fancy bells and whistles I kind of ignore.
