Archived blog pages: two flavors

There are two kind of archived blog pages, functionally similar enough that I described them together. There are relative archive posts, reached by clicking the "Older Posts" link at the end of a page. There are absolu…

Archived blog pages

In the beginning was the blog, composed of posts. Add enough content (and it does not take much), and your posts will overflow off the main blog page and into the archive. Click "older posts" after the last post on you…

Post pages for blog posts

In the beginning was the blog page, but later on each blog post got its own page too. The user option at Settings > Archiving > Enable Post Pages gives each of your posts a unique web address (which Blogger generates auto…

Your blog page (home page)

In the beginning was the blog, composed of posts. The blog page, or home page, shows your most-recent posts in classic backwards order, last-first. Your readers see this page first when they navigate to your blog at its root addr…

When your blog journey is cut short

When I converted my feed from Short to Jump Break , I hit an unexpected wall involving the blog-journey hack that lets you show your content in chronological order. I've vaulted over the wall since (and you can too, if nece…

Blogger's new jump-break-feed option

Bloggers can now set their feeds to end at the jump break while preserving most formatting and hypertext markup. The new Feed option, which Blogger announced on December 9, is in addition to the the Full and Short options, whic…

Changing your blog's name (and address)

You may want to change the name of your blog. I did. Here are your options.

Any web address will do

Do not fuss over finding the perfect blogger web address. Chances are, it is taken. Get over it and start blogging. You can still title your blog whatever you want. Your name and your blogger url don't have to match. When I r…

Get started in private

Just starting out? I think it is a good practice to start your blog as private while you test things, experiment, and grapple with the subject matter of your blog. You will feel freer to try new things and make changes, both to c…

Finish line for the Full or Jump-Break feed

If you chose Full-feed (or Jump Break) publishing, have pasted the javascript code into a static post, and applied any special formatting (which is optional), then you are done. Congratulations! I hope you are pleased. It'…

Just the blog post titles, in order

How would you like to list links to all your blog posts in chronological order? A list that automatically grows as you post new stuff to your blog? If that's what you want—if you don't care about showing any of the conten…

Fixing your feed part 2

English-language syntax is tricky, and the Short pipe does a number of little tricky things to compensate. Even so, the generic replacement rules sometimes run into an exception that screws things up. For instance, my pipe was ev…

Fixing your feed part 1

For Short feeds only. I built the Short pipe for this hack to work on blog feeds that have been limited to the first 255 characters or so. It assumes no more than nine paragraphs or so. That should be plenty if you set your fee…

Still missing some line returns?

If you are still getting run-together paragraphs and have the Short feed, there are two possible causes. (If yours is Full, or if you are just building a list of blog-post titles, you are done! Go here.) One possible cause is tha…

Missing line returns and trailing spaces

You can skip this step if you are using a Full or Jump-Break feed or if all you are publishing is a list of post titles. Otherwise: Your thirst to present your blog content in chronological order has led you to publish a feed …

Format feed with CSS

To format, or not to format? If you are using my blog-journey hack to put your blog in chronological order, one of the things I explain how to do is to format the results. You could, for instance, try to make your reordered ver…

Stylin' your blog-post-order hack (part 2)

As I try to explain in part 1, the code that structures your blog ("This is a blog post" "This is a heading" etc.) has to be associated with style definitions that are elsewhere. In this case, "elsewhere…

Stylin' your blog-post-order hack (part 1)

You've jumped through all the hoops to get your blog content listed in order, oldest first, on your blog: feed , pipes , javascript , and back on a static page on your blog. Congratulations! The next part of the hack uses ca…

The script puts the feed in your blog

This is the script that displays the feed that comes out of the pipe that mashes the feed that you publish of your blog to install the blog-journey hack. Specifically, the code you got from feed2js (or similar service) will show …

From feed to script

Blogger is stubborn about blog-post order. Last things first, on the theory that blog readers are not interested in what you said yesterday. Fortunately, Blogger has been flexible about allowing bloggers to post their own script…

Segmenting your blog-journey by date

Especially if you have many posts in your feed, you might want to break your blog journey into chunks by date. You could, for instance, have each year of posts on a separate page, or break up the flow by month or year. "May…

Feeding your content through the pipe

Assuming you want to implement my blog-journey hack badly enough to have set up a feed and read an introduction to Yahoo Pipes : don't turn back now. Here is the quick-and-dirty. Go to the pipe for my hack. If you've se…

Slicing and Dicing with Yahoo Pipes

Perhaps the strangest part of my blog-journey hack entails sending your blog feed through Yahoo Pipes. Pipes is a free web-based service for mixing and manipulating feeds. Working on the (imperfect) metaphor of your feed as a flo…

Feed types: Short versus Full versus Jump-Break (versus just titles)

A feed broadcasts your blog posts to subscribers, either the entire blog post (if you set up Full feed) or the first 250 characters or so (if you set up Short feed). My blog-journey hack is based on using a feed of your blog, s…

Getting your feed

My blog-journey hack is based on manipulating and formatting a blog feed. There's a lot you could know about feeds, and I'm no expert. Here's a primer and some resources sufficient for hack purposes. A feed takes yo…

First things first: putting your blog in order

A new method for showing blog content in chronological order. Update: I am sorry to say that this method no longer works because of the demise of Yahoo Pipes , a web service that allowed bloggers to sort their blog feed. It was,…

Transferring blog ownership

Maybe you want to give your blog, or its web address, to someone else. Or, if you have multiple google accounts perhaps you'd like to consolidate blogs onto the same dashboard or otherwise shift ownership around. In any case,…
