What's Up With Blogger?

Okay, I just came up with something!!! Is it just me or is blogger having some major issues? I can not comment on anyone's posts. It is frustrating the dickens out of me. I get these long comments typed up then go to publish and it keeps sending me to "sign in" over and over again. UGH!!!! Sorry. it just happened for the 3rd time and I am mad.

Ever since there were a couple of days that we could not access blogger a few weeks ago, I have been a little nervous about the future of the site. Should I switch to another host? I don't want to lose my blog! Anyone else feeling like this???

Weird! No problems with me. Sometimes my cookies are turned off & it won't let me comment.

I would recommend Wordpress - but even if you didn't want your own domain, they have a free service to that is pretty good.

I've had the same problem off and on. Here's what I was instructed to check:

First make sure that the box that says you want to stay logged in needs to NOT be checked.

If that doesn't do it, clear your cookies. (Click on "safety" tab, then "browsing history" then "cear cookies"

Then log out and log back in using www.blogger.com

Sometimes I can comment after just clearing the cookies. Sometiems it takes all 3 steps.

Keeps recurring, tho.

Yes, mine is EXACTLY the same since Blogger went weird few weeks - glad it's just not me!

I was already in the process, but when Blogger went weird I was trying to redirect my WP domain to Blogger because I didn't want to mess with a new system.

Blogger made my experiment (which I did wrong but could have fixed in about three minutes) last for two days, and all my followers thought I'd disappeared without a trace.

That clinched it. I went to Wordpress as soon as I figured it out.

I have been having the exact same problems and was getting really upset because I retyped the comment several times and it never posted. So I am trying again... I have tried clearing my cookies but havent looked at the stay logged in thing yet.. if this doesnt work I'll try that next time.
I just have to say if this goes through.... thank you thank you for your honest and encouraging blogs.

YES! I have had issues as well with my blog doing weird things- not with posting "comments", but with my "followers" not showing up and being blank on both the side bar and dashboard... as well as everyone else's blog followers not showing up when I visit other blogs (under the "followers" heading EVERYONE'S blog had a blank spot)- very strange.

Google "Help" said there are issues with my browser (which was Internet Explorer 7); I upgraded to IE9...that helped with the follower issue; but today blogger won't let me post a new blog entry on IE9. SO, I logged on to my blog from Google Chrome browser and everything works like a charm.

I feel your frustration, Kylie. I'm not techno savvy...can't make heads or tails out of what's been all messed up with blogger, just want it to work with no glitches. Have you tried Google Chrome? (a free download) I'm wondering if Google has made changes that are not compatable with IE. (????)

BTW~ you are looking fabulous! Your faithfulness to healthy living is inspiring.
