A Complaint, A Little Scare

what the eff yo? anyone else having massive problems with blogger the last couple of days?

i had to rewrite my entire previous post on the greening life. it was the most frustrating thing on earth. it had sipmly disappeared! it got saved as a draft version without the words and with only half the photos. luckily it was the last thing i looked at on my ipod thingie so i reworked it from there. but still!
i lost all your beautiful comments. i felt like we had a good thing going and then poof! it's all gone.

not to whine. i'll stop.

i just wanted to ask if anyone has tips for not losing all the content we've so trustingly stored here on the elusively non-tangible internet world?

It seems like everyone who posted in the last 24 hours had that post deleted or messed up. I'm so sorry you had to go back and redo yours! It's such a sweet post, too.

I save all my posts as part of a running word document, which then goes onto a portable memory thingie that I can't remember the name of. Word accepts pics too, so I just pull the whole thing.

You look very pretty in your blouse, I'm glad you like it.

I think it's a pretty widespread issue :/ I lost a post, and all the comments from the post prior to it. I've heard lots of people say something similar too. What a mess!

What! You're right. My last post is gone. So sad. Your greening story was the best blog ever! I wonder if this will get fixed.

ARgh, i know! I lost comments on my last post too. But i didn't lose my actual post luckily. Technology is ANNOYING when it doesn't perform the way it is supposed to. Look forward to reading your next post love.

I had the same experience! Once I completely rewrote it and reposted, the old post REAPPEARED! Give it another day or so before you rewrite it, some are coming back slowly...
good luck! I'm considering typing mine in word for now on just in case :(

I thought I was just going through a dry spell. No comments. Silence in the blogging world but then I couldn't even read anyone elses blogs. Alas paranoia, rest and sleep, for they too are having trouble! :D haha. Sorry you lost your post! ;( How frustrating!!!

Here's the latest on this situation: http://buzz.blogger.com/2011/05/blogger-is-back.html

The good news is, it sounds like everything lost is going to be restored soon, including comments. That is such a huge bummer having to rewrite that entire post though.

I write out my posts on a word document first too, just in case.

I want to read the comments on your previous wonderful post, so I hope they do comeback soon!

Reading that article makes me endeared to blogger. I'm sure they were feeling the pain big time. It's so lucky that all these blogging services are free for us to use....

I did notice that you had left a comment on my post that wasn't there. The only reason I even knew you commented was because it sent me an email on yahoo when you did it. I thought it was just a weird fluke until I read this post of yours. I hope this type of thing doesn't happen very often! Tina
