Bloggin' the Blues

For the last several days, Blogger has not been playing nice. I can visit blogs, but couldn't comment on many of them. You know, one of THOSE kind of days.

After researching the issue and thinking about the blogs I visit, a pattern appeared. I could comment on blogs that had a pop-up box or side bar comment box. Blogs with a comment section imbedded at the bottom of the page simply showed as "frozen"...no comments, no comment box, and no ability to scroll up or down. The only way I could get out of the blog would be to use the back arrow. As of today, it seems the issue has been resolved. At least I hope so.

Oh, Blogger. Why do you do this to me? Can't you keep things up and running the way they're supposed to run? I need perfect performance, non-glitchy updates, and personalized troubleshooting. Sometimes I wonder why I pay such an extravagant sum of money to you for services and still have all these problems.

Oh, wait a minute...

Never mind, Blogger. Do the best you can.

LOL! I've had the exact same problems, Pat. This is my first attempt at leaving a comment this morning. Yours is the first blog I'm visiting. Aren't you special?!
I can't wait to try out other blogs and see if I have the same good fortune as you, in leaving a comment. Have a wonderful Monday!

Hi Pat. I just tried leaving a comment at Linda O's, and it still went to a blank page. Grrr!

We had that problem too - it was very frustrating. Then this morning it started telling us we were not following ANY blogs!! Seems to have changed its mind though. Hope it keeps working for us now :-)

Have you considered using Mozilla FireFox... just fur your Blogging? It really helped Me out when I installed it as my SECOND Browser. I still use Internet Explorer fur everythingy ELSE.

I use Mozilla a lot, I switched to Mozilla a few months ago when I had trouble visiting a particular blog. The person who does that blog asked me to switch to Mozilla as a test and I have been happy with Mozilla ever since. I haven't noticed any problems with blogger these past couple of days.

Blogger can be a pain in the bum at times!
Hope you get it all sorted out soon.

Same here. We had to go into comments and change the settings. That is the only thing that worked. It's not the browser

Lynn said...

Some let you comment and some don't and I guess everyone gets it and... it can be frustrating.

I have had that same problem. As someone else suggested, using Firefox solved the issue for me.

*sigh* I'm still having trouble with Blogger. Whatever kinks they have, I hope they work it out soon!
