So I guess congrats are in order. You just got the notice.
Your blog can now be migrated to Beta. Click here to start.
or whatever. See, I haven't gotten the notice.

If you are ready for the journey, then go. Beta is a pretty fantastic improvement, regardless of the shortcomings.

But.

Before you start, backup your blog.

I say again.

Backup your blog.

Please.

(Note): More detail - a lot more detail is coming. This is almost a stub post. But I have seen enough problem reports recently
I just migrated my blog to Beta. And now it's hosed. What do I do now?

Well, first, you have to report the problem, and reply to the botmail. And be patient.

But while you're being patient, maybe you could work from a backup copy. If you had a backup copy.

Maybe if I say this again, you will next time.

So, I now tell you three times
Backup your blog, before migrating it.
