Confusion About The New GUI, And Reading List Management

As the New Blogger GUI becomes more of a standard, in the Blogger blog world, we're seeing evidence of confusion about the differences in the icons and the menus.
How do I UnFollow a blog?
is one question that we're seeing, from a few confused blog Followers, this week.

The answer is right there, in front of you, when you're looking at the Blog List / Reading list. The Gear icon, to the right of "Reading list"(in the New GUI), replaces the blue "Manage" button at the bottom of the page (in the Classic GUI).

Just click on the Gear icon, and you're there, ready to Manage your blog community. But don't confuse the Gear icon to the right of "Reading list", with the Gear icon at the top of each dashboard page.

That would be fine if they worked. I can go to each blog that has GFC, or follow at the top of the blogs and unfollow there, however, it was much easier and quicker when the buttons worked. It's the blogs that don't have those options that I don't know how to be rid of.
Tried what you suggested and I got this message:

These are the blogs you are following and sites you've joined with FriendConnect. Learn more

gaYte,

You really should fix the Shift key on your keyboard.

That suggestion aside, did you really get the error message mentioned, from just clicking on the Gear icon?

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.
