Blogger json feed variables list

List of all JSON variables found in a Blogger blog json feed.
blogger json feed variables listingOliver Daniels, a reader of scorpydesign had commented on my tutorial on listing blog posts with thumbnails in blogger and he also asked me if there is any list of all json variables for a blogger blog feed. Well actually I didn't thought about digging all json variables - but his comment had inspired me to list one.

So what I did is took a sample of scorpydesign's json feed and did an autopsy using a collapsible json formatter. Here is the result of my findings about all blogger blog feed json variables.

Please note that there are some arrays in some nodes, they have array identifiers like [i] and [j] and can be called same way in javascript.

I don't know some terms in this list of json variables for a blogger blog feed, they are marked as ?? in this list. Actually I didn't have any need of using them - so I never had tried to figure them out. If somebody can enlighten me about them, you are most welcome.
