I love the fact that it allows vertical resizing of the work area so I no longer have to scroll up and down and up and down and up and down whenever I'm writing a post. I just have to drag the resize handle at the lower right corner and my window's size follows suit. Best part is, I only have to do this ONCE cos the size is saved online based on a per-user, per-blog preference.
I love the new toolbar. It's a lot more comprehensive and they've finally added undo and redo buttons. Also, I'm loving the fact that there's now a strike-through button so I no longer have to code it in manually. Colour palettes are looking good, too. The shades work perfectly with my new template. Not as well with my old one but... that's no longer a problem for me now, is it? Haha.
I love how easy it is to change hyperlinks now. (This applies to Compose Mode only.) All I need to do is click on the linked text and a box pops up. That box allows me to view, change and remove the URL, even if it's an email address. It's so, so very simple! No more moving back and forth from Edit HTML to Compose just to see the link. It's perfect!
I love the revised image handling format best. Now, I get to upload multiple files at once (same style as Facebook) and they don't just appear in the post all at once after uploading. Instead, I get to select and place individual pictures exactly where I want to. This works so much better than the old format that just dumps all the uploaded images right at the top of the post all at once. Better still, I get to pick old pictures from my previous posts so I don't have to upload them again or look through my old posts for the codes if I want to have them appear on a new post. I also get to resize and drag-and-drop images with the new image size "bubble." No more messing with codes. I love it!

See? So nice! I love it, I love it, I love it!
The other new functions didn't resonate with me quite as much so I'm gonna stop here. Go read up on it yourself if you want to know what else is new with the New Post Editor. I'll be nice and leave you a link. *click* If you're game and just wanna enable the New Post Editor on your Blogger account, do this:
Go to Settings > Basic > Global Settings > Select Post Editor and select Updated Editor – the first of the three options available. Once you're done with that, make sure you click Save.
That's it! You're done! Now, stop reading blogs
and go have fun with your new post editor. =)
