Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?.
Where is the dashboard?
In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard.

The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger. And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.

The Blogger Dashboard is simply the "Blog List" / "Reading List", and all attached utilities which you, the owner, administrator, or author, access, as you manage the blog.
  • Change various blog settings.
  • Control the post template.
  • Publish and edit posts.
  • Edit the blog template.
  • Add, delete, and reposition accessory gadgets.


The Dashboard - and "My blogs" / "Reading List".




The Dashboard - and Overview.




The Dashboard - and the Posts index.




The Dashboard - and Settings.



There are so many Dashboard pages - and the main pages have sub pages. And every different page and sub page is mentioned, in this blog.

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.
