Show A Label Feed On Your Home Page

Not every blog owner wants to display current posts on their blog Home page.
How do I display just a Welcome message, on my Home page?
Some owners are satisfied with displaying a fixed welcome message - and let the readers click on links in the menu bar, or a menu gadget in the sidebar, to see the posts.


Not all blog owners will be satisfied with a static display, any more than they want to display all current posts.
How do I display a filtered Home page?
The answer to that question isn't immediately obvious - but it does exist.

If you can setup a Text gadget, and make a completely static Home page, you can, just as easily, display a Feed gadget. Then, setup a label for the posts that you want to display on the Home page, and display the label feed, in the feed gadget.

A feed gadget, that conditionally appears only for the Home page URL. A label feed, for the Home page posts. A main page set to show 0 posts.

And there, you have a dynamic, yet filtered, Home page.

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 *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

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.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):

And an additional URL, to provide to those suffering from this problem, would be the WordPress version of this post:
