The Blogger Dashboard Tower Of Babel

If you are a world traveler, you can have your Blogger dashboard in any of 36 world languages. Now, 36 (out of the known 310 languages) is not a great percentage, but it is a start.

But what of those remaining 274 languages? Are they completely ignored? Apparently not. One Blogger, reportedly based in Belgium, reports seeing her dashboard in Flemish. Oddly enough, Flemish isn't selectable, in the list. And, when she selects English, the dashboard stays "firmly in Flemish".

Apparently, there's a bug where, if the local language (as determined by ISP location) isn't in the list, you can't change. If this is true, those living in locales where the language is one of the left out 274, will face some hardship. They will have to learn to speak the local language.

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):

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