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.
