Disabled Blogger / GMail / Google Accounts, When Reenabled, Leave Deleted Blogs

We've been advising people about the complications involved in recovering disabled GMail / Google accounts, for a few months. Recently, we've been seeing a new complication, in this scenario.
I tried logging in to GMail, and it says that my account has been disabled. So I tried verifying by sending codes to my mobile phone - I managed to log in, and it now redirects into my dashboard. Unfortunately, it now tells me
The blog has been removed.
So, I have my Blogger / GMail account back - but no blog!
Apparently, there is a delay, between reinstatement of the Blogger / GMail account, and recovery of any owned blog(s), deleted when the account is disabled.

Shortly after seeing one's disabled GMail / Google account re enabled, the blog owner will login to Blogger, and see the next disappointment - all owned blogs will probably show as removed (when they are listed, at all). Members of team blogs, even the people whose GMail / Google accounts are not disabled - may see the blog(s) in question disappear from their dashboards, also.

There is good news here. Blogger Support is now aware of this problem, and is hoping to resolve it shortly.

Yes, my google account/blogs disappeared and reenabled.

Please an important point, post-this-blog-enabled situation, the webmaster author stats are not working. Probably, blog-author is not recognized (bug). I have already posted a query in the GWT forum.

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. People who read your content from their browser.No two blogs are the same - and no two blogs will have the same combinations of traffic sources.

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.
