Disappointed in Blogger

I finally got up my courage to convert my blog to the new blogger. The good news is that the conversion went smoothly. The bad news is that everything is exactly the same. I don’t see any of the new features. After doing some searching, it looks like because I use ftp to publish my blog on my own server, I won’t be able to use any of the new features. That really sucks. I’m not sure why I bothered converting my blog. I’m really disappointed.
