Publishing Externally? Going Back To Blog*Spot Isn't Difficult

If you're currently publishing your blog externally, because you wanted to use a non-Blog*Spot address, maybe you tire of the limitations of the Classic template, and want to use some of the shiny Layouts template features. Or maybe you have simply grown tired of the many problems with FTP Publishing, a circumstance shared by many bloggers recently.

With that motivation, it's not too hard to go back to publishing on Blog*Spot. Maybe you'll even want to move to publishing to a Google Custom Domain, later.


Not too hard to go back - just select
Switch to: • blogspot.com



Of course, going back will be a bit easier to do if you have a Blog*Spot address available, to return to. And any time you change the URL of a blog, and especially if the blog has any maturity or reputation, you will do yourself a favour to think about the change, first.

I used the URL http://deadb4sunrise.blogspot.com. I purchased a domain name www.dorxie.com. I simply tried switching the name of my blog to www.dorxie.com using the tab "publishing" under settings on the dashboard then nothing appeared. I switched back to my old blogspot address and whenever i view my blog, it displays the empty dorxie.com. Will I ever get my blog back again? thanks

Dorxie,

This needs to be diagnosed, but in Googgle Blogger Help. Not here.

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?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
