Schizophrenia When Logging In To Blogger

If you're like me, and someone asks you for the URL to login to Blogger, you'll be like
DUH. http://www.blogger.com. Who is buried in Grant's tomb, anyway?

But, you would be wrong. With new Blogger, you are much better off logging in to https://www2.blogger.com/login.g.

The latter is secure, and it uses the scripts written for New Blogger ("www2.blogger.com"). If you don't login thru the latter, consistently, you could have problems that come and go.

For best results, bookmark https://www2.blogger.com/login.g - and use it - consistently, after you clear cache and cookies.

Also, see Help! My Blog Is Gone!: Login Problem for login problems of general natures.

For those that have a gazillion bookmarks, a cheater way to get the correct page to sign in is to open your blog itself (or someone's blog) on the web and click the sign in button on the blogger bar (upper right corner). If already signed in, it has the right link to log out.

Thanks for all of the input. I learned a lot surfing your site. More than when surfing the bloghelp and forums (which make me actually feel dumber and then I close the page).

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):
http://www.pkblogs.com/bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com/

And an additional URL, to provide to those suffering from this problem, would be the WordPress version of this post:
