How to connect any other profile in "About me" widget?

In this article I am going to tell "How to connect any other profile in "About me" widget along with blogger or Google+?"

  1. Sign in to blogger.
  2. Go to Dashboard > Template > Edit HTML
  3. At this moment, you are displayed with HTML Template Editor.
  4. Click on the code box, press Ctrl + F & look for the following code
    <a class='profile-link' expr:href='data:userUrl' rel='author'><data:viewProfileMsg/></a>
  5. Now in the immediately next line Paste the following code.
    <a href='URL'>Name of the Website that corresponds to the URL</a>
  6. Change the URL & Name of the Website that corresponds to the URL for your need.
  7. Example :-
    <a href='http://www.facebook.com/khay7'>Facebook Profile</a>
  8. Alternatively like I have given icons for each profile, you shall also replace Name of the Website that corresponds to the URL into an image like below,
    <a href='http://www.facebook.com/khay7'><img src='https://cdn1.iconfinder.com/data/icons/logotypes/32/square-facebook-128.png'/></a>
  9. Reproduce the code as many as times you need for each profile.
Happy Blogging!

DWI - Not all the time "Authoritative" helps

We already saw the common issues when custom domain is involved where we saw a tool called DWI - Dig Web Interface which will help us get DNS records of a particular domain.

Today while coming across a forum thread, got to notice a strange thing ever. It's not the first time however. If you refer the article about corrupted DNS, the blog URL used had similar issue.

It is normally recommended to use "Authoritative" under Name servers when digging a domain. However this doesn't always workout.
