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.

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?".

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger . My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead? It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing . This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
