BlogSend Issuing Email For Updated Posts

Many of us use BlogSend, with or without the inclusion of Google Groups, for notifying ourselves and others when a post is published to our blogs.

This offers a good alternative to a regular email subscription, especially (before this month) when people only want notifications of new posts only. It's also good for the rare reader who doesn't want to access the Internet to read our posts, and who wants to read our wisdom in their email reader only.

This week, we saw several discussions suggesting that people were seeing BlogSend notices generated for updated posts, originally published many months previously. This afternoon, I updated my post Help Your Readers Search Your Blog, and shortly afterwards I noted an email in my Inbox.

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.

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.
