BLOGGER, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM NOW?

For some reason, the last few days, there are certain blogs I cannot bounce over to, no matter how I try.  Now maybe it's this older computer - it is, after all, 4 years old, a dinosaur, obsolete, and still running Windows XP, for goodness sake!!  But it doesn't happen to all blogs, only some - I try to click on the title of the post that day and my computer screen tries...but it just doesn't go anywhere.  Then I go back and try to click on the title of the blog itself, and my computer screen goes there, after some whining and pouting; but then when I try to leave a comment, no dice.  Won't do it.  Won't do anything.  So I return to my blog saying some not kind things about blogger and this computer and try again another time.  Same problem. 

So if you haven't seen a post from me in a few days, that's why.  Blame it on Blogger or an older desktop or whatever. 

I guess I'll have to start using only my laptop for blogs - I already have to do that with gmail. 

I am so glad
humans aren't made obsolete
or redundant after only 4 years!!

I've seen some problems too lately, so don't be disheartened. I usually send an email out when I haven't been able to comment for awhile. I think we all understand :) Hugs, Carol

It's Blogger not you! I have the same problem with some blogs and a similar old computer. :)

Rhonda, there seems to be so many problems with blogger at the moment....not just you..... I doubt it has anything to do with the age of your computer.

I have a similar problem in that two blogs that I follow appear in my list on some days not on others. The Blogger poltergeist at work.

Hi, I think this is blogger not your pc. I've had exactly the same problem....driving me nuts... sometimes I just get a white screen :o( Today it's let me see your blog but not Caroline's or Bruce's.

Well, I guess it's not just me but others having problems with blogger right now - I guess they'll get it worked out soon.

Hello Rhonda. My computer is 7 years. After having the same problems I almost smashed it out of the house but,... I looked on the reported Blogger problems site and so many people have those problems. They say Blogger/google is working on it. Now I'm trying to become friends with my computer again. He is a little bit angry with me :(

I was having a similar problem on this (my new) computer which uses IE7. On the older computer which uses Firefox, there was no problem. Weird. Today--all seem to be working fine.

Thanks, Renate and Hallie; looks like it's just a blogger gremlin and I can stop frowning at the desktop :)
