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 Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
