Blogger: Another blog is already hosted at this address.

Today I ran across the issue on blogger for setup of domain name with error message of "Another blog is already hosted at this address.".

This particular error seems to come from multiple scenarios:

  1. Domain being used up by setting up as Google Apps domain and using the sites feature of google apps.
  2. Or another administrator or the same person, long ago setup the domain on another login of the blogger/google account. 
  3. Domain name mapping changed after blogger publish setup; and it is not mapped correctly to ghs.google.com under the domain registrar after either moving the domain to new registrar or the zone file updated without reestablishing the old zone file settings.

For the first issue the tipsblogger have a solution with screenshots:

I will update my blog to add more details or scenarios where this issue might be the reason later on. If you have thoughts or suggestions regarding this issue please post it in the comments area.

Thanks.

Series: Part 1 - Put your domains to work for you

Have you registered domains and don’t know what to do with them? Or did you registered the domains with hyphens or numbers rather than word so that others may not steal your brand? Well now you have a solution to use those domains and put your domains to work for you.In this series I will be posting many solutions for you so that you can pick and choose the solution that works for you.The first and simplest solution is to have a landing page with basic text. Second, to put the landing page to work for you, you need to add a some links, and these could be called referral links or affiliates text links or banner links. As for as the rules and best practices of posting referral links or affiliates links, I will have to post an entire blog on the topic. For now, set up your domain to have a landing page, a page which is not the default from your domain registrar. Yes this may involve you to setup a webhosting account, but don’t worry now a days, companies like GoDaddy and other registrar’…

Microsoft Band and Windows Phone 8 Support

Will Microsoft Band be supported on Windows Phone 8? Without the 8.1 update?
I have been searching for answers since the Band was announced, but so far can't find any notes regarding my old phone.
I even have Windows Phone 7 but it seems that will be a no no from Microsoft.
