Posting problems?

I've left four comments on today's daily thread and one on yesterday's to see what would happen.  I can't see any comments from anyone -- including the four I've left.  Could someone e-mail me to let me know if this is just me or if everyone is having this problem?  I know that others have made comments about disappearing posts before, but I've never experienced this.


Yes, apparently it's not just Blogger that's having issues, it's Google mail, as well.  Obviously, it's going to be hard to reply to anyone when you can't see anyone's posts, but do post comments or test messages from time to time, just to see if the thing gets fixed.  I suspect that whatever anyone has posted thus far, it will show up once they've got their act together.


  1. seems that it works for me....I had this problem a while back posted comments and they didn't appear for a while and then appeared...

  2. This bit seems to be working for me at least, Montana.

  3. Posted a test post on the daily thread, is visible to me (and at the moment not that truthful, to be honest).

  4. And I would retract my former statement, but don't have to, as it got eaten by the system ....

  5. What the dickens is going on with the technology?? (This is written in baffled tone, not a hostile one, I know no one here is to blame)

  6. My Comment on the 6/7/10 page appeared, but was gone when I looked back 20 mins later...

  7. testing, testing 1,2,3....????

    Post Mortem for Blogger Service Interruption June 7

    By Eddie Kessler, Blogger Engineering Manager

    As we recently committed to you, when serious service interruptions occur, we will provide you details about what went wrong and what we're doing to help prevent similar problems in the future.

    From about 12:30 AM PST on Monday, June 7 until about 12:30 PM, a significant subset of Blogger users, mostly in the US Midwest, were unable to post to their blogs. No data was lost and blogspot was largely unaffected, so your blog’s readers weren’t impacted.

    We posted the issue on the Blogger Status blog, and we made a brief status update on our Twitter account as well. Meanwhile, we kept a close eye on the reports coming through our help forum and Twitter stream.

    The problem was caused by human error. One of our datacenters inadvertently had the wrong server configuration when we performed our regular service update. Once we figured this out, we corrected the problem quickly.

    We are in the process of adding additional monitoring that will prevent this kind of outage from recurring.

    We are truly sorry for any inconveniences this might have caused you. In the meantime, we will try harder to make Blogger a more reliable service.

  9. Tried several tests, but now it seems others are getting on, so TEST again.

  10. Eddie Kessler can suck my bum!!

  11. Has everything gone "tits up" again or is everyone in a Bracken prose induced coma?
