Please Blogger, Restore My Deleted Team Blog!

Last week, I wrote about some exciting news - you now can recover a blog that you deleted, on your own, without any help from Blogger Support! Bloggers all over the world breathe a sigh of relief!

So in an online discussion, someone idly asked
...can any admin use the undelete button..and do all admins get the undelete button when the blog is gone?
and my immediate thought was
Of course not! A deleted blog is locked to the deleting account.
But, I decided to test that idea. And, I'm glad that I decided that.

I took my test blog, and made it a team blog. Bonnie was kind enough to accept membership, and do the test. And, did I get a surprise.

Look, she deleted the blog, and I see it in my dashboard.



And she saw it in her dashboard.



And, I undeleted it.



And now, it's working again.


So, not only can you recover a deleted blog, but any member of a team can recover a deleted team blog.

Kudos, Blogger, you thought this one out correctly.

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):

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