+1 Buttons Are Now Here

A few short weeks ago, we were seeing various anxious posts in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?, from people wanting the latest Google improvement.
How do I get the +1 button?

Now that it's here (check my Share buttons after each post), some folks have displayed mixed feelings about having this on their blogs.
How do I remove the "+1" icon underneath each blog post?
A few may be worried needlessly.
How do I get rid of it? It displays my GMail address, that I don't want people to see!

If you really want to get rid of it, just disable the Share buttons option, in the "Blog Posts" wizard. But maybe, you're worried needlessly.

Like a long ago confusion about your email address being seen in the navbar, this may be something that only you can see.

I just logged in to my blog, in two different browsers, using two different Blogger accounts. In each browser, I see my email address for that Blogger account, in the +1 popup.
Click here to publicly +1 this as xxxxxxx (xxxxxxx@gmail.com).
The point here is, I see myself, in each browser. If you look at my posts, you'll see yourself.

Check it out, for yourself. +1 this post, and see.

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?".

Embedded Comments And Main Page View

The option to display comments, embedded below the post, was made a blog option relatively recently. This was a long requested feature - and many bloggers added it to their blogs, as soon as the option was presented to us. Some blog owners like this feature so much, that they request it to be visible when the blog is opened, in main page view. I would like all comments, and the comment form, to be shown underneath the relevant post, automatically, for everyone to read without clicking on the number of comments link. And this is not how embedded comments work.

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.
