Please be Advise that NOT All Internet Browser are Created Equally, and this is most IMPORTANT for you to understand when it comes to the Internet Browser You're Current Using and with the Google Blogger Dashboard!!!  For not ALL Internet Browser's handshake very well with Google Blogger Dashboard and depending on the Browser that Your Currently Using, Problems could arise when trying to do any of Our Following Tips of "How To Do..."!!!  With this said, while We here are not taking any kind of a position on what Browser You should be using while trying to Blog on Google Blogger, but only advising you if you do run into a problem that we are saying to do and it is not working for You, well then try another Browser!!!!  And if You ONLY have one Browser on Your Computer, well you should have two!!!  For after all, if something goes wrong with the one and only one Browser you have, how can you get back to the Internet to fix it???  Like I said, not taking any kind of a position on what Browser You should be using, but "Mozilla FireFox" and of course "Google Chrome" are currently appearing to be working best with the Google Blogger Dashboard for all the functions that it has to offer.  OK?

How To Add The Google Translator To Your Blog...
We HIGHLY Recommend that ‘ALL’ Blog Owner’s Install the Google Translator on Your Blog’s in the top of your sidebar, like We have it here!!! Since the Gay Community is World Wide, You just never know WHO IS Visiting Your Blog and From What County They Are From and just maybe they CAN NOT Read your Blog’s Native Language!!! So come on Guy’s, let help each other out with this one and place the Translator on ALL OUR Blogs!!! You will be surprised at how many will thank YOU!!! You can get the code by clicking (Here).  And All you have to to do is select Your Native Language and then copy and paste the code!

How To Remove That Annoying Pop-up Window On Your Blog...
Are you getting the following on your Google/Blogger blog?

Then check your blog list and/or your link list and see if you have a link to any blog(s) on sensualwriter.com.  It appears that Google/Blogger does not like any links to sensualwriter.com, probably because there is no Warning: Adult Content message.   If you delete the link, the pop-up should no longer appear when you or a viewer reads your blog.
     
And if you do have a link on Your Blog to any Blogs Hosted by sensualwriter.com, and you would still like to show a link to them without that Annoying Pop-Up Window, you could also place a Text Box right under your Link List or Blog List and type in the Blogs Name and then Hyperlink link it to the Blog. Since Hyperlinks do not use the RSS Feed, like they do in a Link List or a Blog List, this should work for you to link to a sensualwriter.com Blog.
      
How To Remove Your Blog's Top Nav Bar...
On the top of Google Blog's is the Google Navigation Bar, which is placed there by default on all Google Blog Templates!  Now whether the following is true or not, but it made total sense to me when it was shared with me when My Wallpaper Blog got closed down and that it could have been because I had the Navigation Bar in place on My Blog!!!  For this just made it so much easier for someone that was wanting to see My Blog shut down by just clicking on the "Report Abuse" button, time and time again!!  For after all, once Our Blogs gets "X"-amount of these false reports, then our Blogs are automatically shut down!!!  So I was told to remove the Navigation Bar and since My Blog had been up and running for 9 months with 146,000 hits with no problems,  I did remove the bar on My New Re-placement Blog .  If you don't know how to do this, there are several ways and many, many write ups on this very subject on Blogger's Help Forum and you will find them by clicking on the following link....
   
And if you believe this might be true and you are going to be removing the Navigation Bar from Your Blog, FRIST go to Your Dashboard and BOOKMARK that page, for after you remove the bar from Your Blog, you will NOT have a way to "Sign-In" to edit and/or post new postings to Your Blog like you have been doing up till now!!! OK? Ok!  And Yes, the Nav Bar is on top of this Blog, but Jeff, the owner of this Blog has chosen to leave it there for some reason that I'm not aware of.

How To List Your Blog As An Adult Blog...
One of the biggest mistakes that many Blog Owners fail to do and that is to list their Blogs as an Adult Blog when it contains Adult material that provides the "Content Warning" Window before entering a Blog.  Google will SHUT DOWN your Blog, and with out any WARNING, if your Blog does contain Adult materials and YOU DO NOT HAVE IT LISTED AS AN ADULT BLOG!!!  To do this, click on "Settings" on your Dashboard, and on the "Basic" Tab, scroll down about 3/4's of the way till you see "Adult Content?" and then select "Yes".  Then scroll all the way down and click on "Save Settings".  This will save you from being shut down for this violation and when anyone is trying to enter Your Blog now, they will see the "Content Warning" Window before seeing your Blog and that makes the Google Team Happy!
  
How To Keep Your Google Backup Blog In Sync With Your Primary Blog...
If You have created a "Backup" Blog on Bloggers of Your Primary Blog and made it a private Blog for now and you would like to keep it in sync with Primary Blog in the event it is Closed, well your have two options in achieving this task and they are...

Option #1> Each time you Post a New Posting to Your Primary Blog and after You have downloaded a "Backup" copy to your hard drive of your Primary Blog, then go back to Your "Dashboard" and click on "Edit Postings" of your most recent Posting!  And then switch the Edit Window to "HTML" from the "Compose" Window and select "ALL" and then select copy "ALL".   Once this is done, then select "Return To Postings" and then return to Dashboard and then select, "New Posting" for Your #2 Private Blog.  Once there, switch the edit Window from "Compost" to the "HTML" Window and Paste your latest Posting from Your Primary Blog into it this Blog and Publish it.  This is one way to always have what you have Posted in Your Primary Blog to be in sync with Your Backup #2 Private Blog.  However, if there are any comments being posted to Your Postings in Your Primary Blog, and/or reactions,  they will not be in Your Secondary #2 Backup Private Blog by using this option.

Option #2> And while this one is a "TOTAL" pain in the you know what.....but if you want your #2 Private Blog to be Totally and Truly to be in sync with Your Primary Blog that includes "All" Your Postings, along with "All" their comments, and/or reactions,  then in order to achieve this within "Bloggers", one would think all You would have to do is important your latest Backup from Your Primary Blog into Your Secondary Blog and they would be in sync!!!  WELL MY FRIEND, YOU WOULD BE OH SO WRONG!!! This doesn't work that way AT ALL!!!  And the reason why is because the import routine that "Bloggers" supplies ALL of US, this imports ALL POSTING AND ALL COMMENTS into another Blog, REGARDLESS IF they are already there or NOT!!!  Well This One totally sucks, and I don't mean in a good way!!! For it just imports everything ONCE AGAIN!!!  In other words, if you have already imported a backup into your Secondary Blog once,  and you do it again after just one new posting to your Primary Blog, You will have Yes, the (1) new posting in Your Secondary Blog, ALONG with EVERY OTHER POSTING THAT WAS ALREADY THERE,  ADDED AGAIN, ALONG WITH EVERY COMMENT THAT WAS ALREADY THERE, ADDED AGAIN!!!  And while this is WAY, WAY WRONG in My thinking, for a least the Import Routine should ask us, "Hey, this posting is already here, do you want to over write it?  {Yes} {Yes All} {No} {Cancel}" But No, it doesn't and that is the way it is with "Bloggers" Import routine!!!.  However, there is a work around solution to this problem, like their always is with "Bloggers" and that is, before importing a "Backup" into Your Secondary Blog, if you have already done so once before, then before importing again, delete all postings and delete all comments in Your #2 Private Blog first by clicking on "Select All" at the top of the window, and then the Delete Button at the bottom of the window to delete (25) at a time and then once everything is Deleted, then do Your latest import to have a Totally and Truly in sync Blog with Your Primary Blog!!  Like I said, a "total" pain in the you know what...but it works!
   
How To Import All Your Posting Into A WordPress Blog Even When It Has Been Closed Or Removed...
One of the nicer features of WordPress is the fact that You can import all Your Posting from A Google Blog right into A WordPress Blog along with each Postings Comments.  However, the Google Blog must be UP and RUNNING in order to do this!!!  And unlike Bloggers import routine, this import routine only imports what is NOT THERE and doesn't duplicate Postings or Comments like Bloggers does. Great way to keep Your WordPress Blog in sync with Your Google Blog.  But if You Google Blog has been closed then this import routine will NOT WORK and you CAN NOT USE YOUR GOOGLE BACKUPS within WordPress!!!!  So here is a work around solution to this problem if you have Your Google Blog Postings Backed Up on your hard drive.  Just go to your Dashboard and create a "New" Blog and for the address, use your original address and add "temp" to so it looks like this...."myoriginalblogtemp.blogspot.com".  You might want to make this Blog "Private" so if any of Your Old Fans are using any Search Engine and they find it, they will not have access to it thinking that they have found Your New Blog!!!!  Now choose any template, it doesn't matter and don't worry about installing Any "Widgets or Gadgets" that you may have had on you old Blog, they are not needed for importing postings.  If you NO longer have access to your Dashboard at all and Google has complete deleted your ID, then just create a new ID and a New Blog using "myoriginalblogtemp.blogspot.com" for the address.  Once you have Your New Temporary Blog opened with any template, then import all Your Posting from your Old Google Blog's Backup file on your hard drive.  Once all your old posting have been imported into your New Temporary Goggle Blog that is now UP and RUNNING, then go to You WordPress Blog and using the import routine there, when asked what is the address of Your Google Blog is, just enter in the address of Your New Temporary Blog and all your posting will be imported into Your WordPress Blog from You Temporary Google Blog.  Once everything as been imported, then go back to your Google Dashboard and Delete Your Google Temporary Blog, for it will no longer be needed and Your all DONE!!!  Hoping this is a BIG HELP to someone.
