Frustration

Ok, so, Blogger has this whole "new template" thing.   I've tried switching to the new template thing, but I think it looks so crowded and ugly, that it makes me not want to use it.  So, stick with the old template then, right?  But when I do, it can't be viewed in Internet Explorer, apparently.  I've tried it, it does this whole weird blinking re-loading thing.  And lots of people use IE.  So, I'm frustrated and avoiding doing anything with it, and that's why I haven't posted anything.  So, there's the explanation, without any sort of solution.
