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.

I think W G has her (his?) head in a strange place!

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

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.
