AOL Journals - The Migration Has Begun

Earlier today, Blogger Employee Gatsby announced the start of the migration process, from AOL Journals to Blogger Blogs.
The first thing to do is check out our migration guide, which should walk you through all of the steps you need to take.


Now, we see the first announced successful migration, including pictures.
Finally got it to transfer..I went to my Hometown Journal, copied the exact Url from the page onto paper..then went to IE and deleted all cookies. Then signed back on to the Email that gave the link to start transfer, signed in, continued to next page, typed in exact url and bingo..finally transferred, even the pictures came though.


Yes, Virginia, there is hope.

Good to know - it would be heartbreaking to lose one if you didn't want to lose it - but what was the Gatsby reference, just out of curiosity?

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.
