Blogger in Beta

I'm quite exciting with the new beta version and wish to explore it more but unfortunately i don't have a luck to have the link on my dashboard, thus i have to wait until i'm one of them who is able to switch. I have created another new account since Blogger mentioned "what you can do is to visit beta.blogger.com and create a new account. Later on, you'll be able to merge this account with your original Blogger account. "

Copied out from http://help.blogger.com/bin/answer.py?answer=44404&topic=9085 for your easy reading!
While the new version of Blogger is still in beta, some users with certain types of blogs will not be able to switch to it. We'll be adding support for these blogs as soon as possible, so everyone can join in the fun. But for now, if you have any of the following on your account, you'll need to hold off for a bit:

- A blog publishing via FTP to a non-BlogSpot server.
- A blog with a Plus upgrade (we stopped offering this upgrade a couple years ago, so this will not affect many people).
- A team blog.
- A blog with a mobile device associated with it.

Note that, even if your blog is eligible to switch, you may not have the link to do so on your dashboard. We are starting out by just switching over a limited number of accounts, but we'll add more and more as time goes on. However, if you still want to try out Blogger in beta, what you can do is to visit
beta.blogger.com and create a new account. Later on, you'll be able to merge this account with your original Blogger account.

Thanks for your patience, and we promise it will be worth the wait!

I can't log in to blogger.com anymore but when I log in to beta.blogger.com, it's an empty dashboard. My old posts have not been moved. Have written to the blogger team...still waiting for them to solve my problems. So I can't blog at the moment..unless I create a new blog. Sigh.. :(
