Draft Blogger - The Next Frontier

Development of Blogger One Button Publishing, aka Blogger Blogs, never ends. And, having declared New Blogger (2007) stable, Blogger continues to move forward with the addition of new products.

But new products are nothing without new names. Having used the term "Beta" already, to designate the pre-release version of New Blogger 2007, the next term is "Draft". Draft Blogger will contain pre-release features of New Blogger, for test.

To use Draft Blogger, you start from the Draft Blogger Dashboard. Having a separate dashboard requires bloggers to have to work to access products that some bloggers may not be ready for - or may not be ready for them.

If you decide that you are ready to always use Draft Blogger products, you can select "Make Draft Blogger my default", and your normal login will redirect to Draft Blogger. Note links in the navbar will still give you Production (Orange) Blogger, even if you have the Draft Blogger dashboard active.

How well the Draft Blogger environment meshes with the Regular Blogger environment - with features either separated or shared, as appropriate - will be an issue to be explored. Having experienced the debacle that is New Google Groups - like Google Blogger Help, I intend to watch Blogger Draft with all possible scrutiny.

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.
