You Are Not Allowed To Have A GMail Address As The Primary Address For Your Blogger Account

Many bloggers have felt the despair, when trying to change their Blogger account to use a GMail address, and seeing
You are not allowed to have a GMail address as the primary address for your Blogger account.

This despair may be rather intense, when the need is urgent. Maybe, your current email account is expiring, and it's not convenient to immediately move your blog(s) to a new GMail based Blogger account.

But, think outside the box.

The error message means that you may not use a GMail address for the account. If your email account is expiring, and it is not convenient for you to change over to a new GMail based Blogger account immediately, setup a new email account using Yahoo, or any other convenient and free web based host. Then, plug the new email address into your Blogger account, for password recovery.

Setup a new GMail based Blogger account, and transfer your blog(s), later - when convenient. But, consider the advantages of remembering the account password, too.

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?".

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.
