Blogger In Draft Is Just That, No More

Recently, Blogger added an exciting feature set to Blogger - Blogger In Draft. New features are tested, by us, on a blog by blog basis, when we intentionally decide that our blog can be safely subjected to the stress of BID.

Blogger In Draft provides interesting new components in Blogger, but at a cost. Two costs, actually.
  • Functionality. As each component included in BID is simplified, it will lose features.
  • Stability. Components in BID have been known to damage blogs. I won't apply BID to any of my established blogs.


As each new component is added to BID, Blogger will improve functionality and stability, based upon feedback. People testing new Blogger features, released as part of BID, need to be experienced Bloggers, who know how Blogger blogs work, and how to diagnose problems. This qualification probably won't be found with those who write into this forum
How do I do this?
Anybody reading this is, of course, entitled to ignore my advice, and jump in head first. And somebody, each week, will surely be writing into the other forum
My blog is broken. How do I fix it?


At a minimum, setup a test blog, for playing with Draft Blogger. And know how to get out of Draft, when necessary.

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.
