  1. I can't believe that Blogger can't be made safe for minors. The only blog I follow is this one so I don't know much about it.

    1. This is specifically going to affect under-18 student accounts. I'm not sure why, exactly, but maybe because those cannot be managed by parents.

  2. Don't gifs work in Blogger? You email notification shows an animated gif but not here in Blogger.

    1. Never mind. I see that the gif is on a different blog.

    2. Ha, yes, that's a different post.

  3. Peggy, people should know that while there are Blogger data in Takeout that are readable (and are only in Takeout), only the backups from within Blogger can be imported back into Blogger.

    Young bloggers really do not have much time to back up if they want to preserve that option for when they age in.

    1. That's a good point. I'm concerned that there will be a lot of student bloggers who won't get the word in time to back up from Blogger.
