Getting Out Of Draft Blogger

Occasionally, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?, we see a plaintive query
How do I remove my blog from using Draft Blogger?

Some blog owners use Draft Blogger because of a specific problem - then discover later, that use of Draft Blogger, in general, is not a good idea.

Generally, one simply logs out of Blogger, then logs into Blogger using the normal Blogger login.

Simply logging out, from Draft Blogger, won't always fix the problem.

Sometimes, though, simply logging out of Draft Blogger won't return the browser to normal.

In the latter case, one must first clear the Draft Blogger setting, using the "User settings" dashboard page - where we see the key setting
Use Blogger Draft
Change that option to "No" - then clear cache, cookies, and sessions, and restart the browser, to remove all residual components of Draft Blogger.

Use the Settings - "User settings" dashboard page.


Use the Blogger "User settings" dashboard page.


Change "Use Blogger Draft" to "No".

Then, hit "Save settings".


Finally, login to Blogger, properly.

Finally, log into Blogger, using a normal Blogger login. Avoid any bookmarks, favorites, or other saved access URLs. And, be sure to login properly.

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.
