A Second Chance In Life

Not all bloggers can handle the truth, and when I have told some that
With anonymous ownership comes responsibility. You have to maintain access to your blog, without requiring additional assistance from Blogger.
not everybody responds positively. I won't publish the email that I have received recently, thanks to the Google Forums anonymous email delivery service.

But given further chance to reflect, there may be a way around the quandary. If you can't prove ownership of the blog, you can't have control of that blog. Sorry, that part can't be avoided. But you can start a second Blogger account, and a new blog, and you can link the new blog to the old one. You won't be able to go the other way, unfortunately.

But there it is, for you - a second chance. You don't have to pay a thing for the privilege - like all Blogger blogs, this one too is free. And, you get a new account, and a new password.

And maybe, with the new account, you can remember the password, and maintain the backdoor access? Be a responsible blogger, and encourage others to do the same.

I hope it works, Chuck.
Subtlety is a useful technique, but sometimes a baseball bat has to be used.
Too many bloggers are 'not responsible' and can't see the need to be. (Spoon-fed all their lives).
Responsibility is also needed in learning about their blogs, too. Take the Settings screens, Blogger Help articles, (self-observations), for example.
Is it just too easy for them to ask questions? I think so.

What's about "dead" blogs? Why can stupid people block interesting blognamens?

There are no dead blogs. All blogs are equally valid, regardless of posting activity, as long as TOS is not violated.

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):
http://www.pkblogs.com/bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com/

And an additional URL, to provide to those suffering from this problem, would be the WordPress version of this post:
