To Whom It May Concern..Part II.

Well, the last post sorta sums up the whole thing. BLOGGER IS HAVING A MELTDOWN.

My text disappears; I can't edit; I can't drag and drop photos for rearrangement; my page won't load completely; some of YOUR pages won't load completely. Some of these are known problems as of last week but there is still no status update as to a FIX. Hello? Blogger? Is this thing on? Posting is kind of THE thing, isn't it? Without the ability to post, well, uh, what's the point?

Debbie, at Jadehollow said last week she was having similar problems. I'll try posting this again and we'll see what happens. I just wanted you all to know I'm still alive!

  2. So sorry your having troubles. I noticed on other blogger sites various ones were mentioning the same issues. That is why I left blogger and am so happy with Wordpress now. Hope it all straightens out for you. I'm going to put you in RSS feed on my sidelines now!

  6. I was having problems viewing other blogs last week or so. Also couldn't view my own blog. Others saying my blog was slow loading. So I got rid of the fancy backgrounds and just used a plain background color from blogger. Seems to help some. I have been able to post okay recently. So I don't know what is going on. Very confusing though.

  7. You are not alone. Can be very frustrating. I'm not sure (server-wise) how they keep up with other people's stuff... I know they get a bit of advertising, but SO many blog without it... makes me wonder (as more use blogger/space), if they are going to try and start charging. I plan to save my to disk before then ("Vin the "blog dr." has how on his site: http://www.blogdoctor.me/ ).

  8. Oh, boy...I'm glad you are still here...but I just figured you were still taking a break...So sorry that you're having trouble with blogger...I understand from another blogger that those of us who use Firefox as our browser are not having trouble while those with Windows Internet Explorer are...Try switching to Firefox...your kids oughta be able to show you how, if you haven't done it already. Love you and miss you much! XO

  9. Glad you're back (sort of). Could be worse ... you could have had my weekend. Butterfly lost her little dog, Carly, to a rattlesnake bite. Sigh. We're all so very sad around here ... talk about dreary blogging ...

  10. I thought maybe you were in some paradise drinking iced lemonade and getting spa treatments.
    I almost said getting botox, I am watching a show where they are having a botox party...painful!!

  11. Weird. I haven't had any issues, but I use LiveWriter to put my posts together and publish to blogger from that, so maybe that's why.

    Hope it gets fixed soon for you!!!

  12. Vicky: HI and thank you! Reginia at Tetertots says she's about to pull her hair out, too!

    SeedsofNutrition: THANKS for following! I stopped by your site and left a comment but I don't think it went through. Hope you see this! :)

    Lisa: I have NOOOO idea!! Grrrr.

    Kathy: Thank you. Me too! Y'all KNOW that silence is my kryptonite! lol

    Katie: We'll drive together, Thelma!

    Linnea: Isn't this CRAZY?

    BZ: HOW FUN TO TALK TO YOU!!!!!!!!! (I talked to her on the phone......!) Remember those?!

    Janine: I switched to Firefox and it would load my page better but still won't let me navigate within the posts. Keeps giving ALL kinds of weird prompts. When you go to "Save Now" it asks you if you're sure you want to navigate away from the page and other weird things like that. All its wires are crossed!

    Tammy: Oh, Tammy.....I'm SOOO sorry. How horrible for all of you. Oh my goodness......saying prayers for comfort for you all.

    April: I'm beyond Botox my little friend.

    Gitz: You have the right idea....that's for sure.

  13. I have trouble dragging photos around ... can drag upwards but not down. go figure! Pages have been slow to load but I thought that might just be my rinky-dink ISP here,... (small private telephone company's dsl) I'm glad you checked in as I was thinking about you and hoping you were ok!

  14. Phew - you're still alive and with a sense of humour!

    I use Wordpress and can highly recommend it - it has not had a serious meltdown yet... but sssh! don't tell anyone... ;-)

  15. Egads... i'm so sorry you are having these troubles and others as well. I have been lucky so far (knock on wood) but then I only post every 2 or 3 days and I've been in hospital for the last week so maybe I just lucked out and they have all the problems fixed now!

    Hang in there, my friend!

    Hugs and kisses♥

  18. I've missed you Robynn ... so sorry to hear about the 'blogging' problems. I'm having trouble just getting on my computer ... I'm blaming it on new medication, see what's it doing right now ... I know it isn't because I'm such a computer/blogging ditz!!

    p.s. Thank you for your call to Bz ... please keep her in your prayers ... I know she keeps saying "what will be, will be" But prayers are much appreciated. You are a sweetheart!!!

  19. Frustrating, isn't it? Sometimes when I post my pictures, it eats it. I upload the same picture again, but then it's in my Google account twice. But when I try to remove one, it disappears from my blog!! Mr Blogger steals my pictures!! Ewww!

  20. Drag and drop and rearrange photos ... how do you do that? I've only been able to load photos in one order and I can't fix the order once they're up. Very frustrating. I also can't copy and paste text from somewhere else. I'm sure I've been blogging all wrong and there has to be a way to do all these things. I'm a little slow sometimes.

  21. I wish I could blame blogger for my absence, but truth be told, spring is ramping up and I'm simply snowed under with things that have to be done around here!

    Oh dear, "Spring" and "Snowed under" in the same sentence? They don't go together, but I'm too tired to re-write it. It's after midnight and I'm brain-dead.

  22. Blogger has always been kinda boogerish to us, but just recently (when we switched to firefox) we've run into the same problem of not being able to rearrange photos. hmmm.

    See you todayyyyyyy!!! (excited and kinda nervous. I keep getting these random adrenaline rushes...really random.) Goodbye, highschool!
