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.

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.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
