Blogger Dynamic View

I just realized that Blogger came up with a cool gadget of sorts and I enabled this feature a long time ago but never tried it out. Blogger Dynamic View shows your blog and all your posts and photos in different views. To see your blog using Dynamic View, just add "/view" to the end of your URL. I think you have to enable this first and here's the article that will get you set up. 

I like these because you don't have to tamper with html code or frustrating layouts, everything's neat and consolidated. [Click] on a photo below to see the enlarged. Please excuse my messy desktop xD

Flipcard is pretty cool because it neatly organizes all your posts by your first photo according to recent, date, author, label. If you don't have lots of pictures in your posts, it'll show up as your blog title. It's for all us OCD folks out there that need everything aligned and the same size. When you hover, it flips just like a card and gives you the post title with date and number of comments. Search bar top right. (Btw Michelle oops I was reading your post while I took this snapshot. Shoutout woohoo)
Mosaic is way cool, much more artsy and like a photo collage of your first photos. I think this one is my preference. What can I say? I love asymmetry as much as I have trouble spelling that word (I always want to put 2 s's and one m). When you hover, it shows the title of the post and brings that photo slightly forward against the rest of the photos. If you don't have photos, it'll be the title with a snippet in the mosaic space. No search bar.
If you're into lists, this is the view for you. The left-aligned sidebar shows the number of comments you've had as well and the actual post shows up like something you'd see in Google Reader. Search bar top right.
Snapshot reminds me of a Picasa collage and shows all your photos in a post slightly skewed with number of comments to the right side. When you hover, you get the first few lines of text you wrote. Search bar top right.
Timeslide has 3 columns and has confusing logic. The first shows shows 3 random posts from different months, since it shows May 22, Feb 26, Dec 7. First photo is shown with a snippet of text. The second column shows 3 posts and snippets that also pertain to the month shown per post in the first column. When you hover these first two columns, it shows the number of comments on the right side. Third column shows lists of titles of all of your posts chronologically and when you hover over a post, it slides down to reveal a snippet and comment number. Search bar on top right.
I hope this helps! Enjoy your blog's new look and tell me which is your favourite view.
