Adding Your Blog To Your Domain

Many people set up a Google Custom Domain so they can have a Blogger blog, published to a non-BlogSpot URL. A domain - whether based on an existing Google Custom Domain, or on any non-Google domain - can include more than just one blog or web site. If you have another blog, you can add that to your domain, with very little trouble. This is how you develop a cluster of blogs.

Let's look at this blog, "blogging.nitecruzr.net" in a pair of abridged Dig logs. First, "blogging.nitecruzr.net".

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;blogging.nitecruzr.net. IN A

;; ANSWER SECTION:
blogging.nitecruzr.net. 3600 IN CNAME ghs.google.com.
ghs.google.com. 40227 IN CNAME ghs.l.google.com.
ghs.l.google.com. 300 IN A 72.14.207.121


And the "www" alias, "www.blogging.nitecruzr.net".

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;www.blogging.nitecruzr.net. IN A

;; ANSWER SECTION:
www.blogging.nitecruzr.net. 3600 IN CNAME ghs.google.com.
ghs.google.com. 40218 IN CNAME ghs.l.google.com.
ghs.l.google.com. 291 IN A 72.14.207.121


That's all that you need. Add to your DNS host, using their wizard, just like any other DNS setup.

blogging.nitecruzr.net. 3600 IN CNAME ghs.google.com.
www.blogging.nitecruzr.net. 3600 IN CNAME ghs.google.com.


Then, go to Settings - Publishing, publish to "blogging.nitecruzr.net", and select
Redirect www.blogging.nitecruzr.net to blogging.nitecruzr.net.
Alternatively, publish to "www.blogging.nitecruzr.net", and select
Redirect blogging.nitecruzr.net to www.blogging.nitecruzr.net.
Either way, you're done. It's easier to do it, then to write about it.

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.
