If You Gave Control Of Your Blog To Someone Else, It's Not Your Blog

We see this naive question, from time to time, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?.
I added my friend as an administrator, to my blog. He changed permissions, locked me out, and now I don't have access. Can Blogger get my blog back?
Here, we have bad news for you.

The only way you can prove ownership of a blog is by having control.

If you give up control of your blog, it becomes somebody else's blog. If you want control of the blog restored to you, this becomes an internal dispute between you (the former owner), and your previous friend (the current owner).

Blogger Support can't involve themselves in internal disputes.

Once again, we have to remind you to only give control of your blog, to people you can trust.

The blog that you save may be your own.

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.
