Some Blog Owners Unable To Publish New Posts To Their Blogs

For some time now, some bloggers have been able to publish new posts in their blogs. We have an active discussion in Blogger Help Forum, where a solution is promised.
We're digging back into this and hope to have a fix out ASAP.
More reports are posted, each day.
I hit "New Post", the post editor window loads, but the cursor keeps spinning.

Some people find relief from this by using the classic post editor, others by using a different browser, or by clearing cache, cookies, and active sessions. And a few folks use a workaround.
  1. Ensure that "Quick Edit" is enabled, for the blog.
  2. Hit "New Post", and go to post editor with the icon spinning.
  3. If you have "Show Title field" set to "Yes", enter a good post title, because this will affect the post URL.
  4. Hit "Publish Post".
  5. Hit "View Post".
  6. From the published post, which you are now viewing, click on the "Quick Edit" icon.
  7. You are now in post editor, with an empty post displayed. Enter the post content, and "Publish Post" again.
  8. As an alternate to steps #5 and #6, click on the "Edit post" link from the "Your blog post published successfully!" display.

If you are experiencing this problem, provide some details about your experiences.
  • Where are you located, and what ISP do you use?
  • What browser(s), running on what operating system, do you have?
  • Have you tried using a different browser? If so, what result did you experience?
  • Have you tried using a different computer? If so, what result did you experience?
  • Have you tried using a different post editor? If so, what result did you experience?
  • Have you tried clearing cache and cookies? If so, what result did you experience?
  • Do you have other blog(s)? If so, do you have this same problem, with every blog?
  • Is this problem constant, or does it come and go?
  • When did you first see this problem?
Be generous with the details - they might help you to help us to help you.

I would not bother with quick edit - just "Edit post" from the "Your blog post published successfully!" screen.

Custom Domain Migration - Managing The Traffic

Your blog depends upon traffic for its success.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog. Publishing the blog to a custom domain, like renaming the blog, will affect traffic to your blog. The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers. People who find your blog because of recommendations by other people.Search engines. Robotic processes which methodically surf your blog, and provide dynamic indexing to people who search for information.Subscribers. People who read your content from their newsfeed reader, such as the dashboard Reading List.Viewers.

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.
