AOL Journals Migration - Private Journals

The migration from AOL Journals to Blogger blogs has now begun. But, we still expect challenges.

One of the first challenges to show up is with Private Journals. To use the import tool, you'll have to make the journal public. After the import is done, and you have a working blog, you can make it private (select friends can read it), or you can make it closed (nobody but you can read it).

If you have a private journal, and it has comments that were made while it was private, you might want to hold off on making the journal public.
Bear in mind you decide to make your Journal public, all comments added while it is private will be deleted. Comments posted to a private Journal are written with the expectation of privacy.
I'd be surprised of Blogger leaves this as an open issue, but let's wait until they can acknowledge the situation. You have until 10/31 (and possibly later).

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.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
