Email Forum Thread Updates To Me

As we work on various issues in Blogger Help Group, we discuss various issues with many different bloggers, with many bloggers operating on different schedules than we do.

Some folks may go for days before reading back in the forum, finding their help request, and reading our replies to their requests for help. Even more days may elapse before we see their replies. Some threads may then take weeks to complete, while others may take mere hours.

But there is hope for cutting some of the latency. At the top of each thread, behind the "Options" link, is a second link "Email updates to me". The volume of posts in BHG being what it is, you would be crazy to subscribe to BHG, in general, by email. But for individual threads, which you are concerned about, you can subscribe by email.

This helps augment the "Favorites" link at the very top, so we can track many more threads simultaneously.

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:
