BlogSend Issuing Email For Updated Posts

Many of us use BlogSend, with or without the inclusion of Google Groups, for notifying ourselves and others when a post is published to our blogs.

This offers a good alternative to a regular email subscription, especially (before this month) when people only want notifications of new posts only. It's also good for the rare reader who doesn't want to access the Internet to read our posts, and who wants to read our wisdom in their email reader only.

This week, we saw several discussions suggesting that people were seeing BlogSend notices generated for updated posts, originally published many months previously. This afternoon, I updated my post Help Your Readers Search Your Blog, and shortly afterwards I noted an email in my Inbox.

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.
