What Does ‘Blogger’ NavBar Do?


If your blog is hosted by Blogger (your URL ends in blogspot.com or {domain name}.com you should have a NavBar.

What’s a NavBar?

It’s the very useful panel on the very top of your blog which helps you navigate not only around your own blog, but around all the other blogs on Blogger. One of the things this bar will show you is your own e-mail address, but when others are visiting your page, if they’re logged in, they’ll see their own and not yours.

On one hand (the right one, to be exact) you can use your Blogger NavBar as a shortcut to make a new post, to customise your blog, or to sign out if you wish to do so.

On the other hand, your NavBar enables you to follow any blog you’re currently viewing. You can also easily share the page on Twitter, Face Book and Google Reader. The good news, and the reason behind this entire post is that there is now a new NavBar update, according to Blogger Buzz.

There has always been a feature on the NavBar called ‘Next Blog.’ Clicking on this element used to allow you to surf random blogs in various different languages. Now Blogger’s new and very useful update means that ‘Next Blog’ enables you to view blogs with similar content and in the language you understand.
For example if you’ve just come from a blog about writing and publishing tips, clicking ‘Next Blog’ on your Blogger NavBar will take you other blogs of similar topics, in the same language you’ve just viewed. Nice, right?

So if you’re one of those (me included) bloggers who don’t really use your NavBar or know what it’s for, get engaged to this new feature. You’ll be happy you did.

Thanks Blogger. This is a feature this blogger will use to the fullest!

I haven't been working without the NavBar for so long, and didn't know I miss all of these features!

Sometimes we never use things, only because we don't know what they do.
