Google Video Stops Accepting New Content

This weekend, many blog owners are discovering a possible change in Google service.
I cannot upload videos to my blog, and I get an error message.
Sorry, there was an error uploading your video. Please contact support and include the following information:
Blog Id:99999999
Video Id:

This would suggest that Google finally decided to end the schizophrenic confusion of Google Video vs YouTube, and go with YouTube for non business video hosting.

Right now, some blog owners will be using Learn how to upload your videos to YouTube. You can add your video to a gadget, or to a post, if you can host your video with YouTube.

Blogger is working on the problem, as you read this. If you're seeing this problem, and a choice of post editor version is optional for you, try using the new post editor, to upload videos.

Until Blogger fixes the actual problem, you can use either the new post editor, or YouTube.

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.
