Blogger's down. What are you doing instead?

Post by maybegenius » May 13th, 2011, 12:49 pm

Taking a walk? Working on your manuscript? Filming a vlog? Research? Work at your "real job?" Reading Wordpress? Heh.

I plan on doing some yoga, going for a walk, catching up on some (book) reading, and writing a chapter in the ol' WIP. You?

Blogger may be back up, but my last blog is gone, lost in the vast nothingness that is the cyberspace "cloud." I'm pretty bummed, too. I was talking about my very first half marathon this weekend and there were some funny comments. I felt like I *finally* had a good post and the POOF! Away it went.

Aw, is that the post about what was the worse that could happen?

*runs to check* Aawww, yeah. :( :( I had so much fun answering that one.

Oh no, trixie, that sucks, I'm sorry :( I think Blogger's still trying to recover some of those entries, so maybe there's still hope? I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

@hektorkarl - Haha, good plan. Yes, Nathan's book release broke blogger and I restored it! YOU'RE WELCOME.

@Margo - Oh, I did my fair share of that, too.

Yup. The blog did reappear, though the comments are like dust in the wind...

You are all welcome to come over to my wordpress house whenever your Blogger lights go out! I always have food and refreshments on hand. We'll make it a slumber party.

Be nice, or I get out the Tesla cannon.

Did Blogger have the reputation of being more unstable before this incident?
