Blogger Status - What A Name

I don't know what to say about the name Blogger Status - except that it must have been named that way on purpose. Or did it become that way because of the acronym? The chicken, or the egg? Who will ever know?

I've been writing about Blogger Status for months. One of the problems with Blogger is The Silence. And The Silence never goes away.

This is merely the episode of January 23, 2007.

It would appear that some Blogger employees are at the beach this week. So the server outage of January 22never even made it onto Blogger Status.

(Edit 1/24 12:30):

Bet you saw this a bit too?


Not even a day up. What we see is
Blogger is undergoing unscheduled maintenance this morning. We hope to resume service shortly.

and when it finally comes up, the BS Message of the day
New Blogger has had troubles this morning, which you may have seen with slow requests and 502 error pages.
No shit, Sherlock.

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?".

Add A Custom Redirect, If You Change A Post URL

When you rename a blog, the most that you can do, to keep the old URL useful, is to setup a stub post , with a clickable link to the new URL. Yo! The blog is now at xxxxxxx.blogspot.com!! Blogger forbids gateway blogs, and similar blog to blog redirections . When you rename a post, you can setup a custom redirect - and automatically redirect your readers to the post, under its new URL. You should take advantage of this option, if you change a post URL.
