bX- Error When Applying Custom Domain from GoDaddy to Google Blogger

Before, Google Blogger will give you their DNS Setting for you to apply on GoDaddy's DNS' to make it work. Now, the fill-up change into "+ Set up a third-party URL for your blog". But upon inputting your Custom Domain from GoDaddy, It gives you an error (see screenshot below).

I know you're frustrated as I am because even if you follow the instruction on their link to resolve it, It just doesn't work. Before, they will provide you the two CName settings but now they're telling you a vague instruction aside to the bX- error you're experiencing.

So let's cut the ramblings and head to their hideous instruction there quoting the "Your domain must be properly registered first."

Making your non-Google Registrar Domain Properly Registered

Non-Google Registrar means, not bought at Google Domains. It could be sold at GoDaddy, or any other Domain providers. Here's what you need to do. Go to your Google Webmasters, head directly to this link [ ] and click 'Add Property' button. Add your Custom Domain there (see screenshot).

On Verification method, don't authenticate with your Domain provider even though it's already listed in the Selection, It will Fail. Tick 'Other' and do it manually (follow the instruction there).

Go to your GoDaddy's Domain Manager [ ], and tick the three-dots icon of the Domain you want to configure, click 'Manage DNS' (see screenshot below).

Copy-paste the verification text from your Google Webmaster and also follow the instruction there. Apply it to GoDaddy's DNS setting, see screenshot:

After saving your DNS Setting in your Domain provider, head back to your Google Webmaster and click 'Verify'. It should be successful like what's on the screenshot below:

Once you've done all of the steps above, you can now input your 3rd-party domain on your Google Blogger Blog's setting. It will provide you the two CName that you need to apply to the DNS Setting of your Domain Provider (see screenshot below).

Apply the necessary DNS settings to your Domain provider and then you're all done.

Hope this fix helps.

Thanks! :)

Think Big with Zillable - The World's First Intelligent Social & Collaboration Network

1 Successful organizations have one thing in common - a VISION

All that they do must dependably be in accordance with the vision - the divisions, the techniques, the activities, including the people and its way of life and values.

Zillable enables organizations to clarify their vision.

zillable logo

Zillable is a real-time collaboration platform that adjusts activities with the vision a company has. It composes the undertakings and stream of data while empowering independence and individual supposition. It's a mix of all the online components and advantages that most partnerships amplify from web-based social networking, without the danger of discharging private data and presenting the association to a potential investigation without discovery. The environment is controlled, but, free-streaming. Need to know more? The following are the elements you can exploit in the event that you utilize Zillable.

  1. Default Features
    • If you google “productivity apps”, “online project management" or “virtual collaborations platforms - all tools that are fundamental for any association - you would be overpowered with the numerous choices accessible. You would likewise see that these have similar components. That is the reason the primary thing on this list is the thing that I call the default features. These are the basic elements you can discover across most enterprise collaboration systems:
      • One stop shop - It incorporates everything in one location and makes it a one stop shop. The tool is the store of messages, files, discussions and all other correlated data identified with a project, a concise, inquire about, some other movement you might be having in an organization. This feature recognizes that being on the web implies being updated. Virtual servers end up noticeably handier as data administration is never again restricted to an office or a back room that houses immensely vital records that must be spared. They end up plainly open and simpler to backtrack/adjust. It makes tasks simpler and it advances augmenting time, as robotization and templating may likewise be considered in light of past activities or projects.
      • Task list and to-dos - Tasks are sorted out and set in one zone for less demanding administration and appointment. Tracking winds up noticeably less demanding as the tool strengthens responsibility and objectivity in conveying what is required.
      • Visual presentation - Activity and project status are converted into various formats of presentation for less demanding appraisal of accomplishment or consummation. The display varies relying upon the intended interest group they'd get a kick out of the chance to focus on. A portion of the normal ones includes bar graph, line graph, and Gantt chart.
      • Budget and expense tracking - This is exceptionally basic for monetary related records/extends and having an instrument that permits this makes it extremely viable for managers to see the stream of cash, potential advantages, and potential losses and make exact projections for the organization.
      • Privacy - Capacity to channel data for a selected group.

      Zillable has these features with the exception of the financial backing/cost following apparatus which is done through the message and to-do segments, not as a different range as it is essential to the venture. Be that as it may, perused on to discover other accessible alternatives/highlights in Zillable.
  2. Profile and Stats
    • Online tools are for the most part client driven and are sifted through particular search choices. Zillable broadened this into a system where a person can look after his/her business profile and associate with other individuals. Accordingly, it appeared to have turned into a blend of different social media accounts in a controlled environment. A few people still feel that sharing their Facebook profile resembles an interruption to their private life. Zillable rearranges this by giving the road to share data professionally and in light of what you do/contribute for your organization. Afterward, you can investigate spaces where you can add to others' projects also.
  3. Maps
    • There are two sorts of maps in Zillable and it might be like the visual presentation of messages and data in different stages however what I like about Zillable is that the segment is particular to thought collaboration through mind maps or skill maps. Conceptualizing has never moved toward becoming as digital as this and Zillable simply got it going.
  4. Twitter
    • Twitter is a standout amongst the most well-known social media access and Zillable has boosted the utilization of the @ symbol to identify with individuals in the project or contact who can be tapped.
  5. Pinterest
    • Zillable has utilized the idea of boards and pins. Here you can spare messages by sticking/pinning them and getting to them later on for consideration or culmination. The display is additionally somewhat comparable, it won't cause you perplexity as far as navigation and access.
  6. Notebook
    • Notebook enables users to sort out his/her own particular substance in one area/bunches them together for easier access.
  7. Publications
    • Refers to content accessible for everybody's viewing pleasure. It gives responsibility and believability over one's own content.
  8. Inventions
    • Refers to areas where you can contribute your thoughts.
  9. Challenges
    • Refers to areas relating to challenges.
  10. Solutions
    • Refers to arrangements relating to particular areas you can cover.
To get started, here's a brief how-to video of Zillable:

There is a considerable measure of online task management tools that are better than average and can convey what you require for your organization. It might have been working for quite a while now and it may not be the opportune time to roll out any improvements yet what I'd jump at the chance to stretch is online instruments are liable to normal updates and innovation. It ought to have a cooperative relationship to the requirements of your group and of your customers. Furthermore, in the event that you as of now observe that the progressions have changed, the devices that they utilize ought to take after. This is the main way you can cast off your vision vigorously and make work less demanding.

It is human instinct to adjust keeping in mind the end goal to survive and I'm certain that as an association, your fundamental concern is soundness and benefit Your vision is the thing that issues and in the case despite everything you're utilizing similar tools that you were utilizing 10 years back, reconsider. Think more extensive, think greater, think further.

Issue: Xiaomi Mi Band Not Charging | Fix: Heating the Device

Lazada Philippines

I forgot to charge my Mi band and its battery was depleted for days. So the time I charged it, It's not showing any indicator. It's not charging :O

Mi Band Pulse not charging

I tried various solutions I found online to fix my Mi Band but none of them works (see below):
I attempted to clean the nodes with cotton buds and alcohol.

I'm about to scrap the nodes but I think, It's not needed as looks clean as new. Cleaning it with alcoholed cotton buds is enough.

Make sure you dry the nodes completely before charging or else, charging it while wet might result to further complication.

After doing the trials above, my Mi band is still not charging :(

Fixing Xiaomi Mi Band Not Charging Issue with Heat

I think of exciting the electrons inside the battery with heat which will force the battery to run. So I lay it near the exhaust fan of my laptop. I let it absorb the heat in 5 mins. And upon trying to charge it again... It's back charging! The indicator blinks.

placing mi band on heat to make it charge

Caution: overheating may break your device. Observe and check it by tapping it barely. Take away your Mi Band from the heat if you think it's already overheating.

This solution may work with any brand of Fitness Band with a similar issue. You may try a Hair Dryer instead of the one I did above.

Hope this post helped you.
