If you're making a custom 404 error page for your #Blogger blog, which you SHOULD do, by the way, be sure to also set a custom title tag, as by default, there's no title tag at all! There's no documentation on what type of pageType a 404 is, but I just discovered it's called an error_page. So you could use the following code:

    <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "error_page"'>
        <title>404 - Page not found</title>

I'm really happy about this discovery, because I've been trying to figure it out for a while now. :)

It's about time we all know the truth about Blogger's policy for deleting blogs. Can they really delete your blog without a warning?

Yet another great post from Judy Dunn.

Titles are something I often struggle to create. Sometimes they come easily—occasionally I get a great idea for one before I write a word of the actual article. Other times, I write my article and can do nothing but bash my head, trying to think of something good.

Haha! I've got to remember this one.

The IntenseDebate moderation page stinks. I should be able to reply to comments directly from there. Nope. As soon as I click "approve", the comment disappears and I'm left to find it on my blog.

I'm just waiting for LiveFyre for Blogger. I used to love IntenseDebate, and yes, it was a great improvement over the default system, but boy is it an eyesore, and I'm tired of waiting for improved functionality, etc, etc, etc.

Here's a preview of the #Blogger template I'm working on. It should be finished soon-ish.

Strype Hype's layout and colors are completely customizable in the Template Designer and it has improved SEO.

I might convert it to a Wordpress template too. :)

Stay tuned...

Hurray! I've been waiting forever for this feature! Thank you!
Ever wish you could create a custom permalink to your blog posts? Well, now you can. +Tyson Roberts developed this feature and will be around to answer your questions. Hope you'll try out this feature and let us know what you think!

I'm trying out my first blogging schedule/routine/thing this week. I know, I know, you're thinking I'm insane for never having one before, and maybe I am. But I hate schedules—they're so restricting, in my opinion. But the one I'm trying gives me a lot of freedom, or so that's the plan. Here's how it goes:

Monday - Tuesday: write, write, write
Wednesday - Thursday: templates, templates, templates
Friday: reply to comments, promote, etc, etc, etc
Saturday - Sunday: who cares...

We'll see how it goes. I might trash the idea and go back to doing whatever I want whenever I feel like it. :P

What about you? Do you have a routine for blogging?
