Setup A Team Blog

Occasionally, we have some blog owners who have never considered publishing a blog with multiple owners, or even with multiple authors.

A team blog is so easy to setup, yet some blog owners have no idea how to do this. A team blog with multiple authors is the simplest to setup - just go to Settings - Basic, and use Permissions to invite a friend as an author.

When your friend accepts membership, you have a team blog with multiple authors.

Make sure that your friend uses the right Blogger account, to accept membership.

Your friend should know to use the correct account, when accepting membership. And to accept membership, promptly.

Make a team member an administrator, after membership is accepted.

To make a team blog with multiple administrators, just make one of the team members an administrator, after he accepts membership as an author. Here, as always, I'll advise caution - only add administrators whom you can trust - and who will perform, honourably and reliably, as administrators.

The "About Me" / "Profile" gadget will change - be prepared.

Note that with a team blog, the default "Profile" gadget will change to "About Us". If you don't care to make the team authorship (or ownership) of the blog so obvious, you'll probably want to setup a custom Profile gadget / static page.

Making a team blog is simply a portion of the process of transferring blog control. It's that simple.

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.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
