Pictures, Hosted In A Blog That's Transferred From One Blogger / Google Account To Another Account

Any time that we give advice about transferring control of a blog to another Blogger / Google account, or using another email address with your blog, we try to include additional advice
If the blog contains pictures that were uploaded using post editor, do not ever delete the Blogger / Google account.
This detail, in some cases, seems to be seen as a myth or superstition.

Some superstitions have basis in reality - and this is one such superstition. When you upload pictures using the post editor photo upload wizard, they are hosted in a Picasa account that's tied to the Blogger / Google account. You can transfer control of the blog itself, using Settings - Publishing. Unfortunately, this transfers only the blog.

The Picasa account, where the pictures are hosted, remains with the current Blogger / Google account. If you "clean house", and delete the unused Google account, your pictures go away.

Here, you may wish to review the connections between Blogger accounts, email addresses, and Google accounts, as well as the original procedure for transferring control of a blog.

I have a blogger acct

This week because Google gave me no choice, I switched to the new posting format. My image upload facility has been showing a 404 panel ever since.

Any ideas??!!?

More generally, the content of my blog (The Slog) is designed to point out how all things BIG in politics, banking, retailing, business and the Web say one thing and do another - claim to be working for us, but actually spend their lives in silos playing Sudoku.

I've risen to No 38 in the UK league now and get 2500-3000 hits a day. So clearly a lot of folks share my frustration.

The totally inadequate level of internet service is a global disgrace and should be addressed by users: do you agree? And do you know any sites that share this view?

Many thanks in advance.

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 *, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access or you can access, but you can't access, or

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.
