AOL Journals - The Migration Has Begun

Earlier today, Blogger Employee Gatsby announced the start of the migration process, from AOL Journals to Blogger Blogs.
The first thing to do is check out our migration guide, which should walk you through all of the steps you need to take.


Now, we see the first announced successful migration, including pictures.
Finally got it to transfer..I went to my Hometown Journal, copied the exact Url from the page onto paper..then went to IE and deleted all cookies. Then signed back on to the Email that gave the link to start transfer, signed in, continued to next page, typed in exact url and bingo..finally transferred, even the pictures came though.


Yes, Virginia, there is hope.

Good to know - it would be heartbreaking to lose one if you didn't want to lose it - but what was the Gatsby reference, just out of curiosity?

Gatsby is the Blogger Employee who is the first point of contact in these matters. He announced the migration process.

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?".

Embedded Comments And Main Page View

The option to display comments, embedded below the post, was made a blog option relatively recently. This was a long requested feature - and many bloggers added it to their blogs, as soon as the option was presented to us. Some blog owners like this feature so much, that they request it to be visible when the blog is opened, in main page view. I would like all comments, and the comment form, to be shown underneath the relevant post, automatically, for everyone to read without clicking on the number of comments link. And this is not how embedded comments work.

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.
