After much aggravation and several attempts, I finally overcame the New Blogger/Old Blogger issue and was able to add SAM3 to my dashboard! I was just about ready to heave the computer out on the front lawn. Not sure how I did it finally, but following Chrissy's instructions on creating a new Old Blogger account then merging it with my New Blogger account worked. (Even though the first attempt kept telling me it was creating a New Blogger account. Can't tell you what I did differently.)
