The Blogger Dashboard Tower Of Babel

If you are a world traveler, you can have your Blogger dashboard in any of 36 world languages. Now, 36 (out of the known 310 languages) is not a great percentage, but it is a start.

But what of those remaining 274 languages? Are they completely ignored? Apparently not. One Blogger, reportedly based in Belgium, reports seeing her dashboard in Flemish. Oddly enough, Flemish isn't selectable, in the list. And, when she selects English, the dashboard stays "firmly in Flemish".

Apparently, there's a bug where, if the local language (as determined by ISP location) isn't in the list, you can't change. If this is true, those living in locales where the language is one of the left out 274, will face some hardship. They will have to learn to speak the local language.

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.
