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.

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):
