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.

Dude, hit me with a comment!
