A Blogger Account, For Virginia, USA

A few months ago, a few Blogger blog owners were given important news which may not have pleased them.
For a number of technical and operational reasons, we’ve decided to finally end our support for migrating legacy accounts and blogs after December 5, 2011.

If you are one of the blog owners who needs to read this, you will need to know the name and password for your (Legacy) Blogger account.

You will need to execute the Claim your blog wizard, before December 5. The normal Blogger account recovery wizard may work for you now - but after the end of next month, it will probably not.

If necessary, move ahead, this month. Next month will be too late.

Does that mean those blogger names (aka domain) will become available too. (Grin)
You know somebody was going to ask so why not it be me!!

I'd like to know the answer to ET's question, too.



I think that the 'urls don't expire' thing is absolutely great - it helped me reach some truly amazing blogs, which might have not been there were there an expiration point.

Yet, since that clause is there in case the owners want to come back after a hiatus and, as far as I can understand, after the cutoff date the legacy accounts are unavailable to those owners anyway (if they don't migrate, of course)...
I'm left wondering.

I have been through the help forums, but couldn't find a clear answer.

Thank you in advance :) !

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.
