Blogger Profile Surfing - A Focused Replacement For "Next Blog"

Besides surfing blogs using Following, which will let you identify other bloggers with possibly common interests (hoping that anybody who Follows your blog would be somewhat interested in what also interests you), we have the possibility of surfing blogger profiles using profile keywords.

When you edit your Blogger profile, you can specify keywords which correspond to specific things that interest you. Having done that, those keywords become links, to profiles of other bloggers who have specified those same keywords. Be sure to check the spelling - you'll be able to test it immediately.

In fact you can search for blogger profile keywords without actually putting the keywords in your own profile.

If for example you wish to search for bloggers with "memories" as a keyword in "interests", put this into your browser:

http://www.blogger.com/profile-find.g?t=i&q=memories

(where i stands for interests)

to find bloggers whose favourite books include those by John Cowper Powys, put this in browser:

http://www.blogger.com/profile-find.g?t=b&q=john+cowper+powys

(where b stands for books)

Other parameters:
s = music
j = industry
m = movies
o = occupation

It would be so useful if multiple keyword parameters could be entered in a single search string.

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.
