The New GUI (2011) Is Now The Current GUI

When the New Blogger GUI (2011) was first introduced, it was optional. New Blogger blog owners, and other Blogger account holders, would get the (currently available) Classic GUI by default, with the offer
Try the updated Blogger interface
at the top of the dashboard. When in the "updated Blogger interface", we would see the reassuring link to
Switch back
at the top of the blog list or dashboard.

Blogger has now taken the next step, to making the New GUI (2011) simply The GUI. The "Switch back" link, at the top, is now gone. If you want to go back to the (former) Classic GUI, you find the gear icon at the top right of the blog list or dashboard display. Clicking on the gear, you'll see a more robust pulldown menu, with the selection "Old Blogger interface".

An alternate way to move forward would be to use the New GUI Use URL
www.blogger.com/opt-in-new-ui.g?useNewUi=true

If you are trying the "updated Blogger interface" from an out of date browser, you may not be able to access the gear icon. In this case, you may find the Classic GUI Recovery URL useful.

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?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
