And here's the new look.
From what I can tell, the change is merely cosmetic. All the old functions are still there, but they look different and some are in different places. Wait, there is one new function I noticed - Location. I can mark where I'm blogging from. Also, it looks like more of the options are available on my small laptop screen without scrolling down. That's a plus.

Blogger’s fresh new look Posted by: Chang Kim, Product Manager As you may have heard, things are starting to look a little different across many Google products—and today, Blogger is the next product to get a makeover. It’s been a few years since we made major updates to Blogger’s look and feel, and there’s a lot more to these changes than just shiny new graphics. We’ve rewritten the entire editing and management experience from scratch so it’s faster and more efficient for you—and easier for us to update and improve over time. Throughout the design process, we conducted user interviews to help identify how to make Blogger even easier and more enjoyable to use. We also watched users try our new interface and made many refinements based on their feedback.
