The "Recently Updated Blogs" Display Is No More

In 2006, we discovered an interesting feature of Blogger, which let us monitor blog publishing activity, in real time.

Sometime last year, "Recently Updated Blogs" stopped working.

Last month, we reported the outage, to Blogger. Recently, Blogger Support described "Recently Updated Blogs" as an "experimental" feature, which won't be restored, for reasons of privacy / security.

R.I.P., R.U.B.

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.
