Custom Domains: A Small Status Update

Google Custom Domains is a great way to combine the versatility of an externally published website (letting your blog be accessible thru a non-Blog*Spot URL), with the feature set of a Layouts template blog. But many Bloggers know the full story - - Custom Domains still needs work.

For those of you who are using a custom domain, and would like for instance, "www.yourdomain.com" to be accessible as "yourdomain.com", we have a small status update.

I asked
Do we need more people suggesting that "www.martinezumc.org" should equal "martinezumc.org", or are you guys actually working on that issue?


And was told
We're working on that, too :)


So, Chuck, you can't always get what you want. No, that's another issue altogether.

I guess that it's another case of recommending both Patience, and Persistence. Try a mixture of both.

Well this is encouraging. I hope the issue is fixed soon with minimal work to be done on our end. I will try and remain patient and optimistic.

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?".

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.
