Adding Your Blog To Your Domain

Many people set up a Google Custom Domain so they can have a Blogger blog, published to a non-BlogSpot URL. A domain - whether based on an existing Google Custom Domain, or on any non-Google domain - can include more than just one blog or web site. If you have another blog, you can add that to your domain, with very little trouble. This is how you develop a cluster of blogs.

Let's look at this blog, "blogging.nitecruzr.net" in a pair of abridged Dig logs. First, "blogging.nitecruzr.net".

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;blogging.nitecruzr.net. IN A

;; ANSWER SECTION:
blogging.nitecruzr.net. 3600 IN CNAME ghs.google.com.
ghs.google.com. 40227 IN CNAME ghs.l.google.com.
ghs.l.google.com. 300 IN A 72.14.207.121


And the "www" alias, "www.blogging.nitecruzr.net".

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;www.blogging.nitecruzr.net. IN A

;; ANSWER SECTION:
www.blogging.nitecruzr.net. 3600 IN CNAME ghs.google.com.
ghs.google.com. 40218 IN CNAME ghs.l.google.com.
ghs.l.google.com. 291 IN A 72.14.207.121


That's all that you need. Add to your DNS host, using their wizard, just like any other DNS setup.

blogging.nitecruzr.net. 3600 IN CNAME ghs.google.com.
www.blogging.nitecruzr.net. 3600 IN CNAME ghs.google.com.


Then, go to Settings - Publishing, publish to "blogging.nitecruzr.net", and select
Redirect www.blogging.nitecruzr.net to blogging.nitecruzr.net.
Alternatively, publish to "www.blogging.nitecruzr.net", and select
Redirect blogging.nitecruzr.net to www.blogging.nitecruzr.net.
Either way, you're done. It's easier to do it, then to write about it.

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):
http://www.pkblogs.com/bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com/

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