Blogger Sucks - I'm Moving My Blog To A Different Platform - The Story Continues

Some people have decided that Blogger One Button Publishing, though a somewhat free service, is simply not to their liking. Some such opinions are possibly tragic, or misguided. Other similar cases, however, may be quite reasonable.
I want a URL that's not available. It's inactive, but nobody will help me claim it, so I'm moving my blog to WordPress!

When you pick a URL to publish your Blogger blog, you cannot pick one that's already in use. Blogger lets us publish our blogs to our own standards, as long as we publish within Terms Of Service. Blogger lets us keep our blogs, for eternity, if we so desire - and will not interfere with our plans for eternity.

If you are so determined that your blog have a certain URL - and are so certain that only that URL will do for your blog - you probably belong with a WordPress blog. If that Blogger URL is unavailable, because it's in use by a previously published Blogger blog, then a Google custom domain - or a WordPress URL - is probably your next best bet. Note that both custom domain URLs, and WordPress URLs, are also subject to availability.

Blogger is what it is. If you're not able to wait for Blogger to improve, and your personal needs are satisfied better by WordPress, you'll probably be better off there. Please feel free to go, with our blessings.

I am very grateful for all the hard work that blogger does for us behind the scenes. Well said blogger, it is impossible to please all of the people all of the time.
Even though I am having a couple of problems (mostly with commenting on my own blog and some of the blogs I follow- I love publishing on Blogger. It is comfortable and has allowed me to be birthed as a BLOGGER! Thanks, Blogger. No one is perfect but I sure am happy for all you DO allow me to do!

Blogger gets my goat at times but it is way more flexible that wordpress is.I can add any widget that I want to with word press some widgets are a NO-NO suck as the widget for entrecard. wordpress will not allow that one,I know I tried. so I guess I will stick with blogger.I sometimes post on my wordpress blogs.Most of the time I am here on blogger and Intend to stay put.

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.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
