The blog is back!


I hope you found Althouse2, my (thus far) faithful backup blog. I'll add it to my blogroll, so in case this ever fails again, check it out.

And thanks to Glenn for linking. Back on Althouse2, I ask if it was a coincidence that Blogger Support suddenly engaged with my problem 11 minutes after he posted to say "Blogger sucks." If an Instapundit link is what you need to get Blogger Support... well, I'm glad they solved my problem, but that's an awfully hard way to get help! And so then they pretty much do kind of suck!

UPDATE: And thanks to Gordon for helping too.

One of my favorites on blogspot also died/disappeared last night. It's back today!

When I posted to your site yesterday evening, the post did not show until today, which then made me think I was being shunned cause my self esteem is very low.

But then I saw my comments today, with some Bruce guy responding to my thoughts in a very convoluted fashion. So I was reassured that all was well. Thank you blogger for messing with my self esteem (back to the pills).

I think Althouse 2 is a way more stunning site visually. You should copy that style. It's so spacious and alternate universe Ann is so much friendlier; she was serving snacks over there everyone, last I checked.


I was wizard, now I am Finn.

Finn: I was worried people would think it was a special problem preventing just them from posting.

I left blogger some time back. I certainly don't have the traffic or content that justifies my paying for a site to be hosted but...

at some point my time and frustration becomes worth something. So it's a few bucks a month but I'm happier to spend it than I was when I didn't.

I had blogger problems last night as well. It was horrible. Family members were calling me to see if I was alright since they couldn't access my blog. Thank goodness my blog came back this morning. My sweet sweet blog. Don't ever leave me again.

Ann Althouse said...

Moral Turp: Yes, I got some email from people who thought -- I guess -- I'd died.

I'm glad to see that you the problem got sorted out. One question, if blogger is such a problem, why have your backup blog there as well? Who's to say that the problem won't be blogger wide the next time?

Went to bed last night before you got back on line. Didn't know about Althouse2. Started having withdrawal symptoms of cold sweats and bouts of insatiable thirst and hunger. Stayed under my covers and gently wept.

Finally this morning I emerged from my depression long enough to try and link to you. Shazaam, there you are! Life is good!
