Migration From Blogger Classic To Blogger Beta - In Place Process

So I guess congrats are in order. You just got the notice.
Your blog can now be migrated to Beta. Click here to start.
or whatever. See, I haven't gotten the notice.

If you are ready for the journey, then go. Beta is a pretty fantastic improvement, regardless of the shortcomings.

But.

Before you start, backup your blog.

I say again.

Backup your blog.

Please.

(Note): More detail - a lot more detail is coming. This is almost a stub post. But I have seen enough problem reports recently
I just migrated my blog to Beta. And now it's hosed. What do I do now?

Well, first, you have to report the problem, and reply to the botmail. And be patient.

But while you're being patient, maybe you could work from a backup copy. If you had a backup copy.

Maybe if I say this again, you will next time.

So, I now tell you three times
Backup your blog, before migrating it.

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):
