Schizophrenia When Logging In To Blogger

If you're like me, and someone asks you for the URL to login to Blogger, you'll be like
DUH. http://www.blogger.com. Who is buried in Grant's tomb, anyway?

But, you would be wrong. With new Blogger, you are much better off logging in to https://www2.blogger.com/login.g.

The latter is secure, and it uses the scripts written for New Blogger ("www2.blogger.com"). If you don't login thru the latter, consistently, you could have problems that come and go.

For best results, bookmark https://www2.blogger.com/login.g - and use it - consistently, after you clear cache and cookies.

Also, see Help! My Blog Is Gone!: Login Problem for login problems of general natures.

For those that have a gazillion bookmarks, a cheater way to get the correct page to sign in is to open your blog itself (or someone's blog) on the web and click the sign in button on the blogger bar (upper right corner). If already signed in, it has the right link to log out.

Thanks for all of the input. I learned a lot surfing your site. More than when surfing the bloghelp and forums (which make me actually feel dumber and then I close the page).

Custom Domain Migration - Managing The Traffic

Your blog depends upon traffic for its success.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog. Publishing the blog to a custom domain, like renaming the blog, will affect traffic to your blog. The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers. People who find your blog because of recommendations by other people.Search engines. Robotic processes which methodically surf your blog, and provide dynamic indexing to people who search for information.Subscribers. People who read your content from their newsfeed reader, such as the dashboard Reading List.Viewers. People who read your content from their browser.No two blogs are the same - and no two blogs will have the same combinations of traffic sources.

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.
