Mistakes Happen

The popular saying isn't that, but it's close. We all make mistakes.

If you just made a big mistake and deleted your blog, or if you're the latest victim of an over sensitive Blogger anti-splog bot, recovering your blog will involve Blogger Support, and the Blogger Support Help Form.

But don't start there - start by setting up a stub blog now.

Then finish the initial recovery:

Optional steps while you wait for Blogger Support to act:
  • Put a post in your blog.
    (Blog Title) Coming Soon.
  • Admit that you were an idiot (yes, you were - admit it).
    (Blog Title) Coming Soon (Sorry - I goofed).

Yeah, David, I see the problem.

How about you post in GBH: Something Is Broken, or in Nitecruzr Dot Net - Blogging. The online forums are much easier to use, then Blogger Blog Commenting, for interactive problem solving.

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):
