Your Blogs And Your Blogger Accounts

Some bloggers are confused about the relationship between blogs and Blogger accounts, and think that you need a separate account for each blog. This leads to questions like
I have 2 blogs, and whenever I am logged in to one, I can't edit the other.
or
I can only see one blog at a time, in my dashboard.


In other scenarios, some bloggers accidentally create a new Blogger account, when they setup a new blog.

Fortunately, in both cases, it's no great task to simply transfer one of the blogs to the account that owns the other blog. Subject to the Blogger limit of 100 blogs / account, you may keep all of your blogs under one account, or under a dozen accounts, at your pleasure.

If having multiple blogs under one account makes you worry about mixing blogs that shouldn't be seen together, by their all having a common "About Us" / "Profile" gadget on the blogs, make a custom Profile gadget for the blogs that are sensitive to you.

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.
