450 #4

If you're getting a 450 when trying to publish to your blog, retrying repeatedly does eventually work. Really.

But it's not reliable.

I just got my friend on IM, and she tried. And got more errors. And I tried for her. And got more errors. I tried 12 times or so (and didn't count). And still more errors.

But this was after I posted 3 or 4 notes in Blogger Help and Blogger Forum advising folks that it does work - really. And I'll bet some of them are blessing me, for telling them to retry. And others are cursing me.

But I know that it does work. Just be patient, and persistent.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
