The Migration Has Ended

It's not just a migration, it's now a stampede. The option disappeared today, leaving in its place
Move your account to use the new Blogger

No "Please", no "Soon".

So how did I get here, to post this?

Well, there are two possible web site addresses. Use the one, wisely.

Nope, there's only going forward, now. I have to update all of my newly migrated blogs with the shiny New Blogger template features, when I'm not busy helping with the stampede, that is.

(Edit 1/26 13:00): Here is the first and only acknowledgment, to date, by Blogger.
We are beginning to require a portion of Blogger accounts to switch to the new version of Blogger. This is necessary in order for us to soon be able to retire the old version of Blogger. The first time you see this message, you will have the option to skip it and access your blog on the old system, but after that you will be required to switch.


(Edit 1/26 15:00): Publicly published instructions, in Blogger Help Group: How Do I? Moving Over to the New Version of Blogger advises us
Starting today, a small percentage of users who log in to an old Blogger account will be required to move to the new version.
and goes on to
If you're one of the lucky folks who is prompted to move your account over to the new version of Blogger, you'll be able to postpone this process once (and only once) if you *really* need to get a post out of your head or want to say goodbye to the old Blogger.
but offers no advice how to postpone the process.

Further below, the generous, and vague, instruction
Lastly, if you find yourself continuing to experience difficulties accessing your blogs (AFTER looking for help on your own), I encourage you to write in to The Blogger Team.
But how? Details, details...

Not a user friendly instruction, overall. It reminds one of the exercise of due diligence, and no more.

This blog is now migrated. I am not going to let it go out of existence.

I suspect that Blogger and Google will give plenty of material for this blog, constantly, and eternally.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
