The New GUI (2011) Is Now The Current GUI

When the New Blogger GUI (2011) was first introduced, it was optional. New Blogger blog owners, and other Blogger account holders, would get the (currently available) Classic GUI by default, with the offer
Try the updated Blogger interface
at the top of the dashboard. When in the "updated Blogger interface", we would see the reassuring link to
Switch back
at the top of the blog list or dashboard.

Blogger has now taken the next step, to making the New GUI (2011) simply The GUI. The "Switch back" link, at the top, is now gone. If you want to go back to the (former) Classic GUI, you find the gear icon at the top right of the blog list or dashboard display. Clicking on the gear, you'll see a more robust pulldown menu, with the selection "Old Blogger interface".

An alternate way to move forward would be to use the New GUI Use URL
www.blogger.com/opt-in-new-ui.g?useNewUi=true

If you are trying the "updated Blogger interface" from an out of date browser, you may not be able to access the gear icon. In this case, you may find the Classic GUI Recovery URL useful.

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.

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.
