Renaming Your Blog, and Your Mail-to-Blogger Address

If you've ever transferred control of your blog from one account to another, or renamed the blog and changed the URL, on a blog that accepts posts by Mail-to-Blogger, you may have wondered about the unchanging aspect of the Mail-to-Blogger email address.
I recently changed my Blogger "BlogSpot Address". However this change did not seem to effect my Mail2Blogger email address. Is this right?


Later, you may have noticed that none of the posts being emailed are publishing, after the URL change took place.

When this happens, don't panic. Just go back to Settings - "Email & Mobile", and change the private portion of the Mail-to-Blogger email address, update your email client with the new address, and try again. Apparently, even though the public portion of the address doesn't change, the private portion is being reset when the URL changes.

This is just one more detail, in the process of properly planning a blog rename.

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.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
