We first introduced the Dashboard and Recent Activity stream to TypePad users with the launch of the new TypePad design. Since then we've continued to look for ways to improve your in-app experience. With this week's release, we have several new features on the dashboard available exclusively to Pro Beta users.
As a Pro blogger you want blogging tools that help you create and consume content easily. In your dashboard, we've combined the power of the BlogIt bookmarklet and Quick Compose to create the "Reblog It" composer. To try it out, simply copy and past any URL into the main field, hit the arrow button to the right and "Reblog It" will do the work for you. It's a quick and easy way to share the web with your readers and followers, so try it out by creating a few posts.
Additionally we made some major changes to the recent activity stream to provide you with a better reading experience. You will be able to see more content within post excerpts and notifications for actions like follow and favoriting have been reduced to avoid clutter. Comments left on your blog have been taken out for the time being but we're working on introducing it again in a better way. What do you love and what do you miss? Let us know in the comments below.
