Say Goodbye To Old Blogger

The migration to New Blogger 2006 is in its final stages. If you haven't gotten the monolithic demand, you will any day.
Move your account to use the new Blogger

No "Please", no "Soon".

You may, for a limited amount of time, have one last chance.

There are two possible web site addresses, to login from.Let's see how long the latter remains operational. And don't logout, or you're done.

If you have a blog with team relationships, you would be very much better off migrating NOW, while you can plan the migration properly.

But before you get to this point, please organise your accounts - make sure that all account names and passwords are up to date. You won't even be able to migrate your blog to WordPress, if your account / password isn't up to date.

Now, some of you who read this might think that I'm a shill for Blogger. But you're wrong. I haven't been a fan of Blogger, blindly, since March 10, 2006 - the day that I (my blog) joined the 403 Club. That was not the happiest day of my life, and it marked the beginning of my (unpaid) career as a Blogger critic.

But, even as a critic, I know that we're going to have to move forward. We're stuck here in Oz, Dorothy. You can't click your heels and go back - Kansas isn't there any more.And welcome to K-Mart, where the customers provide their own support.

Adding A Link To Your Blog Post

Occasionally, you see a very odd, cryptic complaint I just added a link in my blog, but the link vanished! No, it wasn't your imagination.

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?".

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.
