If I haven't been commenting on your blog lately, blame Blogger!  I try, then I'm taken to a screen where I have to log in.  Then I'm taken to the place for word verification.  Then I'm taken back to the screen where I have to log in!!  What's up with that?  It's not happening with EVERY blogger I try to post to but enough that it's getting to be a pain in the behind!!  I hope they fix it soon.

I'm really not ignoring your lovely posts - just can't seem to get through for now...

Have you tried unchecking the box that says 'keep me signed in'? That worked for me. And I also noticed that it's not a problem on blogs that have their comments set up for the pop up window, but not everyone has that obviously. Crazy Blogger. Good luck!! :)

I have had the same thing, and have spent way too much time on Blogger's help page, which you need a GPS to navigate!

I DID find that if you enter "," that it will go to YOUR check-in and you are in.

The other problem that seemed t arise at the same time as the check-in issue was that I lost my stats capability. That, I still have had no luck in recovering or reinstalling. It seems to be a "permanent" or "fatal" error.

Oh, an another problem that came at the same time was that I lost the capability of uploading images! Now, how can artists who blog do without that feature??? I had to install FireFox which allows me to use those functions in "posting."

I thought I was the only one that had all this happening. I HOPE that all this isn't happening to you or anyone else, but, I am slowly finding "workarounds."

Good luck! Let us know what happens next!

I've had issues with blogger too. This is what i do if I REALLY REALLY want to comment: after i make a comment, first i save it because it's annoy9ng to retype. then i click on preview.. and i see a blank window. Then I right mouse click on this blank window and i get a message that gives me some choices, i pick the one that says "show this frame only"
it opens up a new page and THERE is my comment. Now i click on publish, and i get a new blank window, and i do the same thing. Now it gives me the word verification.. type that in and you might have to click on another blank window or not, but then finally you can publish your comment. if you are lucky it then says "waiting for owner moderation" or something like that. that's why I use wordpress instead of blogger!!

I have had the same problem on occasion ... most annoying!
And today, my other perpetual problem: the photos I posted aren't visible!

RH Carpenter said...

Crystal, thanks - I'm trying that to see if it works (since that seems the easies workaround).

Dee, Sorry Blogger is not being friendly towards you! I guess that's what we get for free stuff sometimes. I'm sure it will all resolve itself soon. I do hate that term "fatal error"!!!

Mimi, sounds like you are doing the Blogger hop, too!! ha ha Just your explanation of what you are doing made me tired :(

Laura, it seems Blogger is having glitches in various areas. I'm going to try Crystal's idea first - might work for you?

Join the club Rhonda, I've had to sign in as Anonymous on about half of the blogs I follow. I just don't leave comments on those that don't allow me to as either myself or the Anonymous to which I add aka Carol B.

Caroline said...

If you untick the box that keeps you signed in you should be ok. I had the same trouble. Hope you get it sorted soon Rhonda.

Teresa Palomar Lois said...

I've got that same problem on and off over a month now, but only commenting on blogs with the embedded comment form, and only on internet explorer, now when blogger starts the loop of doom I simply go to firefox and post without problem. Rhonda if you find a better way to avoid this problem don't forget to share it pretty please ;)

RH Carpenter said...

Thanks, Caroline, that worked so far - I checked it out with Sadami's blog (which kept me going round and round in a loop).

So, for all those having this problem, uncheck that Keep Me Signed In box and try again. Hope this helps some of us!

Thanks, Carol and Teresa, for adding your problems. At least we're all in it together!

So it's not just me!

Hi Rhonda,
I had the same problem a few weeks ago. I quit my browser, then re-opened it - that seemed to help. Good luck!

Sadami said...

Dear Rhonda,
Thank you!! Well, while you were struggling, I was writing emails/complaints to Google for several times. (*I realized it from my "StatCounter." Some people certainly wrote comments, but they did NOT come up or reach at my mail box.) Thank you, Rhonda for your great patience. Google did not answer me directly, but I hope they'll fix it up. I keep an eye on StatCounter and check it.
Like Tersa, I have the trouble that comments do not come in and sometimes, I cannot publish them successfully.
Kind regards, Sadami

Dee Doyle said...

Rhonda, Bless you, our blog has become a mini chat board for all things broken on Blogger ... My current query is to Sadami ... when you find out what's wrong wit hyour stat counter, can you let us/me know? thanks to all. I think someone also said, you're not the only one. I DO feel better knowing I am not the only one! Thanks, Rhonda!

RH Carpenter said...

No, Deb, looks like there are a few of us having problems!

Jane, closing out and returning didn't seem to work BUT unchecking the box that says Keep Me Logged In has worked so far.

Sadami, good luck with getting an answer :) Hope they just FIX IT!

Dee, I hope the talk helps others who may be having issues, too.

Dee Doyle said...

My typos are getting bad ... YOUR blog .... mini chat room for broken Blogger issues. I still thank yo ufor opening up this can of worms, so we don't feel as if we are the only ones!
