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.

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.
