Interesting Posts In Google Blogger Help

Even though There Is No System Wide Failure, Bloggers are in shock. This is like any natural disaster; every time earthquake surviviors hear a noise, they think it's another quake. Here, every time Blogger times out, or gives an error message, people think that its down again.

But we still have to analyse, and report, the problems. So, what do you say to posts like these?

How to best reply to these posts?

  • What is the problem? Publishing (Blogger.com), or Viewing (Blogspot.com)?
  • Does the problem affect all blogs, or just specific ones?
  • Is the problem seen from all computers, or just from yours?
  • And finally - - wait for it - - HAVE YOU REPORTED THE PROBLEM??

It almost seems as if some folks live to post
This is getting crazy, anyone else down this morning?


Now I'll admit it - posting this does give me some comedic relief. It's fun winding WG and the others up. But mainly I do this because I can post here, quickly. So, before starting to write an actual technical blog article, in my other blog, I post here, and look to see if this post comes up with these words. If it does, I can tell that WG has her / his head somewhere wrong again.

Bottom line - if you're reading this, neither Blogger nor Blogspot is down. At the moment, 10:00 PDT 13 June 2006. I can't predict 10:05 PDT 13 June 2006 though.

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.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):

And an additional URL, to provide to those suffering from this problem, would be the WordPress version of this post:
