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.

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.
