One Of's Newest Options - Blog List

I have to say that I like this new feature very much! You can't see it on this blog because this blog is still using the older template layout but you should be able to see it on my The Adsense Consultant Blog.

Not only can you add a listing of your favorite blogs but you can also include a snippet of information regarding that blog's last post and how long it has been since the last post.

With the recent flux of complaints about the bx error code problems that has been having for quite some time now - this is a very welcomed good thing / feature that has added!

I'm Being Criticized!

As I have posted before I participate in some of the help boards. I'm now being criticized for answering some of the older posts - say like 15 days old (and some older) that haven't had any replies to them.

I just don't understand this kind of reasoning. I mean if someone makes a post and no one replies to it doesn't that make it look like no one has taken the time to even look at it? If I can answer the post then I do - especially if I have something relevent to add. There have been times when I have answered an older post and someone has either emailed me or posted a comment to this blog either thanking me for answering their post or asking me for more information.

All of this started around the time that I started talking about their being a bypass for the bx error code problem and I came to find out that was not aware of there being such a procedure - so I didn't mention it again UNTIL someone brought it up on the boards!

So I'll just have to see how this kind of thing "pans" out!

How Did I Learn HTML And How Long Did It Take Me To Learn It?

So many people are posting about how they want to change and/or modify their blog's layout - and this usually involves working with the html coding of the blog.

Those that are new to html coding get frustrated when trying to change the layout of their blog.

Personally I think that html coding can be difficult for any beginner! One mis-placed character and you could mess up your whole page!

I have gotten to the point where I can do html editing in the Window's notepad program BUT it took me a while to even get to that point! When I first started working with html it was way back with AOL's AOL Press program - which I think that I still have on my computer! Basically I learned html by trial and (a lot of) error and the most ironic thing is that even if you think you know it all - something new comes along!

So even though I can be pretty good at html coding I'm still learning.

If you're new to html coding then you might as well relax and "enjoy the ride" because this is something that just cannot (generally speaking) be learned in a day!

Are You Having Problems With FTP And Your Blog On

Here is a link to a current status report about the ftp problem.

According to, on June 11, 2008 they have posted that the problem has been solved.

Unfortunately since the posting of that message, other people have been posting on the help groups that they are still having problems with ftp-ing and their blogs.

I really can not say whether or not the bx error code bypass procedure will work on the problems people are having with ftp-ing and their blogs simply because I have not used the ftp option with my own blogs so I have never needed to use that option

However I may some time in the future test this out just to see if the bypass procedure will work as far as ftp is concerned.

Is There A Better Blogging Site Than

Now it seems that people are looking for other blogging sites to put their blogs on because they are getting frustrated and fed up with

First of I have to say that personally I'm not having too many problems with and my blogs that I have on so I haven't even thought of moving my blog elsewhere. Whenever I get one of those bx error code screens I just bypass right out of it and I go back to working on my blog.

About the only real problem that I am having with my blog is with my
test blog and that is only because of a video that I uploaded to this test blog just to see if I encountered any error problems when I uploaded the video.

Other than that I haven't had too many problems with my blogs.

Does The BX Error Code Bypass Procedure Work With The Problem Of Uploading Videos?

I honestly have to say that I don't know. When I read that other people were having problems uploading their videos, I decided to try and upload a video of my own. It took the video a long time to upload and after about 2 hours I gave up and cancelled the upload. Later when I went to look at my blog I saw that the video had uploaded. Now looking at my blog just a few minutes ago the video doesn't show at all.

In order for me to try the bx error code bypass I first have to get one of those bx error code screens and so far I haven't gotten one when I tried uploading a video. I have gotten the bx error code and was able to bypass it when I was trying to upload photos so I know that the bypass procedure works for that. I also know that it works for problems such as posting to one's blog.

Please make sure that you ask for it just in case you would like to know what it is!

I Give Up!

After seeing so many people posting about the problems that they were having with trying to upload their videos I decided to try and upload a video of my own to my Test Blog.

After 2 hours of waiting for a 650k video to load - I Give Up!

So Far So Good!

It really is dis-heartening to see that a lot of people are still getting bx error code messages when they are trying to work on their blog(s). The latest crop of problems seem to be with people having trouble uploading videos or photos to their blog(s). I have even see some people post that they are thinking about moving their blog to Wordpress. A lot of people are posting their frustration at not being able to get any "help" from but I can tell you that I have seen some of the employees posting and replying to other peoples' questions about the problems that they are having with their blogs.

I hate to say it but so far I haven't had any problems publishing photos to my blogs. As a matter of fact I did a test posting just to upload a photo to my blog just to see if it worked and it did. Everytime I get one of those bx error code messages I just bypass right out of it and go back to working on my blog. I really try not to add videos to my blogs because I know that not everyone has a high-speed internet connection but I may try it at a later date just to see if it will work.

Been Offline For A Couple Of Weeks!

I recently had a power outtage problem and was not able to get online with my computer for a couple of weeks.

I'm currently viewing and answering some posts on the Blogger Help message boards right now and it disheartening to see that there are still a lot of people posting about the bx error codes that they are still getting.

Recently a new crop of problems seems to be people having trouble with uploading / viewing videos on their blogs.

With so many different error codes being reported by people it seems that the number of different error codes are increasing.

Since I have been back online I haven't had any problems posting to my blogs as of yet.
