Blogger, Blogger...Who's Got the Blogger?

Are we all feeling better now that Blogger is (almost) back to normal?

Admittedly, the world didn’t stop spinning, but more than a few of my online associates were bemoaning the site’s prolonged “read only” status.

Blogger went down for maintenance yesterday afternoon. They stayed down for about 20 hours and ate a few recent blog posts in the process (including one of mine, which returned briefly then vanished again, taking a second one with it in the process).

In their most recent status updates, Blogger says the posts had to be temporarily removed in order for the site to be fixed and that they're now working to restore those posts. From what I've been able to pick up from online chatter, some bloggers are finding their posts restored in draft form, but some of those posts are incomplete.

I'm still waiting for my last two posts -- on The Golden Rage and The Roving Genealogist -- to return. Both can be recreated with relative ease, but it's still annoying to think that my interview with the writers of the new Moon Girl limited series will have to be formatted again.

All in all, a bad day for Blogger. We'll keep our fingers crossed that the problem is fully resolved and that the site will now run smoothly for the foreseeable future.
