Managing Your Followed Blogs, With A Non Shared Blogger Profile

If you are going to use Following effectively, you have to manage the blogs that you Follow, as well as managing the people who Follow your blogs.

Managing the blogs that you Follow should be fairly simple - just click on the blue "Manage" button at the bottom of the dashboard. Some blog owners won't be able to do this, though - and for an apparently irrelevant reason. Following profiles that are associated with non shared Blogger profiles can't be managed using the "Manage" button.

What now? Why can't I Manage my Followed blogs?


Another problem that may result from a non shared Blogger profile would be a Follower icon with no profile link, or a link leading to the above display - if, of course, you are Following a given blog using your Blogger profile. You can show the contents of your Blogger profile, a list of your own blogs, and a list of your Followed blogs - and still not allow access to your Blogger profile - if you de select the option to "Share my profile", in the "Edit User Profile" wizard.

If you click on "Manage" and see an error message about an unavailable profile, you have two options.
  1. Edit your profile, and select "Share my profile" - at least temporarily.
  2. Access "Site settings" from the Followers gadget, in any blog that you own.

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.
