The Blogger WishList Is No More

Blogger, for all of their imagination and wisdom (and collectively, they have a lot of both) can never hope to keep up with the collective and individual desire and imagination of all of their customers (aka "bloggers"). Nor should they hope to do so. The strength of Blogger / Google lies in their vast customer base, which is practically infinite in diversity.

One of the key screens in the Blogger Help database has always (in my mind) been the Blogger WishList form. Until this week, anyway. Yesterday, I was somewhat dismayed to learn that the Blogger Wishlist form is no more. In its place, a list of tips, with one suggestion
Have a great idea or suggestion? Let us know! We enthusiastically read and tally all your suggestions.
and the link "Let us know!" leads straight to the Blogger Help Group.





So now, we are to hope that Blogger Support regularly reads through the Blogger Help Group, looking for suggestions. Some bloggers are using the Blogger Help Survey form, as a substitute wishlist form.

(Update 5/5): The WishList is now temporarily alive as a new AppSpot forum.

I'm not surprised. I guess I never believed that Blogger was paying much, if any, attention to those Wishlist items they received, partly because I saw that so many of their "innovative" features, no matter how interesting, have not usually been one of the Wishlist items that bloggers "wished" for. What Blogger is actually responsive to has long been something else (God knows what), not the Wishers' wishes!

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?".

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.
