Confusion Between The New Blogger GUI, And Dynamic Templates

Recently, we're seeing some possible confusion between the design of our blogs, and the design of the menus and utilities used to maintain and publish our blogs.
I like my blog, as it is! Please, Blogger, don't make me change my blog!
Not everybody, posting in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?, understands the changes that Blogger and Google is making.

The New Blogger Interface is what we're being constantly urged to switch to.
The old Blogger interface will be removed in the coming months. Upgrade Now.
This is the notice now appearing on our Classic dashboards. The New GUI will (when it's working properly) offer us, the blog owners, better ways to maintain and publish our blogs.

Separate from the new interface, and offered by both the Classic and New GUIs, is the dynamic templates. The dynamic templates offer us, and our readers, new and exciting ways to view our blogs.

The New GUI will, eventually, become the only GUI. Even as many of us hate the New GUI, if we understand system design, we know that Blogger cannot continue, and permanently maintain both the Classic and the New GUIs. Until The New Blogger GUI becomes The Blogger GUI, everybody needs to check out The New GUI, and let Blogger know what needs fixing.

The current (non dynamic) templates, and the dynamic view templates, on the other hand, are alternate ways to enjoy any different Blogger blog. This blog, right now, is published to a non dynamic template. If you wish to view this blog using a dynamic view, though, just click on "DYNAMIC" in the menu bar (or here). The dynamic views are optional - and should remain so, for some time.

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.
