My blog is showing as violated terms of service but I don't know why and I need to get my blog back to public view, so what do I need to do?
Chuck said…

Look on your dashboard, do you see a link for "Request Review" or similar? If not, you'll have to write to Blogger using the Contact Form.
Roxy Harte said…
Thanks Chuck
I would have never figured that out...they keep their contact pretty well hidden

I filled it out and hopefully thay will contact me because this is very frustrating!

I don't even have porn up on my site...just shameless self-promotion of my erotica cause I'm an author and somebody has to push my stories and it might as well be me...

Anyway THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chuck said…
Good luck, Roxy. I agree, it's pretty confusing. Of course, the hacking / porn / spam problem isn't too great either.

I just wish that Blogger could figure out the right way to eliminate the hacking / porn / spam problem itself.

I am getting this error message now, a full 11 months after you wrote this post and cannot for the life of me find a solution! As for trying to contact someone at Blogger is nigh on impossible and the Help Group has plenty of help requests but seemingly little in the way of answers! If anyone can help resolve this issue (Index out of Range: -27) I would be eternally grateful!

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 *, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access or you can access, but you can't access, or

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.
