Get a Grip Blogger!

Recently I've been whinging on about the inconsistency of Blogger in relation to inserting photographs that enlarge.

Still haven't sussed out what the problem is because using exactly the same method to insert them, one day they insert and enlarge, the next they don't.

Today I have another moan. What a surprise! I went to look at the blog updates and now I've got this message on my Dashboard:

I'm almost frightened to say this but click to enlarge the picture if you can't read the text!

Now just wait a minute!

What about all those lovely blogs I've been following for the past 10 months? Have I been imagining them? Maybe it's a Dallas moment and I've been dreaming like Bobby Ewing for all that time?

Well that would be OK because if that's the case, I obviously haven't been on holiday yet. Still got something to look forward to. Well was that trip to Rhodes part of the dream too? If so it was a blooming good one.

Did I have a moment of complete madness and delete them? No, I'm not that doolally yet.

No it's all too real this problem and it hasn't gone away. I've been in and out of Google a couple of times and yes, they've all gone.

I was horrified that I might have to start searching for all the blogs I follow. I know I'd never remember them all.

Anyway I've just checked my Blog and thank goodness the updates are still showing on the right hand side. Phew!

Now if they come back I'll make a list of them and also the urls so if they disappear and the side of the blog stops updating I'll still be able to find them.

Is this what they call Disaster Planning?

What on earth is going on?

Come on Blogger, for pity's sake, get a grip before you really do send me doolally tap altogether!


  1. All of a sudden, blogger decides that I can no longer view certain blogs. I will get to the blog and then I hear the dreaded "klunk" and it just closes. I'm also struggling with downloading pictures. It's a good thing we're patient, Winifred.

    Have a happy weekend.

    Just tonight's Parent Program and one more morning and VBS is finished for this year. I am looking forward to a restful weekend.

  2. I've had that happen to me too Winifred, about 3 months ago... They all came back after a couple of hours... I am sure that is what has happened to you here today...

  3. I wish I could understand ANY of this but a good friend usually bails me out ... TG for her. TTFN ~Marydon

  4. My gripe at the moment with it is; none of my posts I make to be posted at a certain date & time ahead are posting!?

  5. I think there are lots of gremlins at work in Blogger and they're working overtime!

  6. Winifred, that happens to me periodically. I wouldn't worry about it;it seems to be a glitch on their end, but it resolves itself. At least it has for me.


  7. And google still has a problem w/ that embedded comment format. I hate having to try several times to post a comment on someone's blog that uses this format. Google should just get rid of this option!
    Good luck w/ your situation!!

  8. I had the same thing happen to me today. I went to Blogger help and seen they were working on it. I was some upset BEFORE I did that though. Thought I had lost all my readers. I also can't visit a few blogs because I have the same problem as hippo chick. It has something to do with ie and firefox. I hope they get it fixed soon.

  9. I so know how you feel, I find the whole thing confusing. It's when Blogger flips my photos around for no reason I get upset!!!

My Singer 338!

Well here it is my very first sewing machine, the one I got for my 21st birthday in 1966! I know it cost my Mam  a lot to buy it for me...
