You Can't Take It With You

Recently in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?, we've had direct contact with a few confirmed spammers.

These are people who have submitted to the noxious 4 step spam confirmation protocol, and who have been given the full benefit of the doubt.

When I come back with the unfortunate (to them) news
OK, all good things end some day.

Your blogs will, quite likely, not be unlocked. You might wish to review the Blogger and Google TOS.

the next post is frequently
OK, can Blogger unlock my blog so I can get the content, and move to another host?
or
Can I redirect my address to my new TypePad (WordPress, whateverspammyhostichose, ...) web site?
and the answer is
No, you cannot do that.

What you steal is not yours to keep, when you are caught.

Like ill gotten gains from robbing banks, you're not permitted to take your spoils of illegal act into your next life.

Content, search engine reputation, and traffic - all acquired while misusing Blogger and blogger resources - are not yours to keep, once you are confirmed as an abusive blog publisher. You stole all of those resources from genuine and honest blog owners. You are not permitted to keep any assets, illegally acquired.

If the police arrest you for fraud, and break up your game of "3 Card Monte" - and you're found guilty of whatever law prohibits your "game", you're probably going to spend a few nights in jail. When they let you go, they are not going to give you back your playing cards - or the money that you stole. If you want to get back in business, you'll need a fresh pack of cards - and probably, you need to start over, in a different city.

It's time to start over.

When the blog is deleted, the BlogSpot URL is locked, for life. If the blog was published to a custom domain, the domain URL is also locked, for life.

The BlogSpot and custom domain URLs won't be re usable, in Google. Ever.



Go away, please. You may, if you wish, start over - but the current life of yours is over. Maybe, find another source of income.

Just don't make the same mistakes, next time.

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.
