Blogger Hate Mail

Blogger is having a crisis of epic proportions this month. Naturally this is occurring during the 47 minute break I’m having between the end of the ASU Spring session and before remedial summer school for those us trying to graduate in her lifetime. First Blogger wouldn’t let me leave amazing comments on your space, then I got stuck in a vicious circle of not being able to login and now it’s eaten my followers. You’re there, I can hear you breathing Team Tuna.


I am hoping it recovers before tomorrow but I’m holding off on a real blog post to see if Google can pull their head out of their ass or are they all liquoring up for the 3 day weekend. So alas, no recipe today. If you are a new follower over the last week or so, please, please, please put your blog info in the comment section so I can follow you back. The rest of you, please leave a solidarity comments so Mrs. Tuna does not do herself a typing injury writing hate mail to Google

Frustrating, isn't it? Try any browser but IE. I've had luck with Safari and Foxfire.

Kristina P. said...

I haven't dealt with a lot of issues, other than some commenting problems.

Mark said...

I love you, Mrs. Tuna.
If you try to leave comments and it has you sign-in, uncheck the "leave me sign-in" box and then it will allow you to do it. It's a pain, I know!

I think I'm finally being pushed into making the jump to wp!

Not Blessed Mama said...

blogger sucks lately, yo.

Cathy said...

I feel your pain, believe me. I've just about had it with Blogger and am packing my bags to move on. Will be heading over to WP soon.

EmptyNester said...

I am seriously considering WordPress! Just need to figure out how to do it without injury. LOL

Caro said...

I'm lucky so far no issues with blogger on my side.
I dont know if I already gave my blog address already, but here it is again just in case www.thecarozone.blogspot.com

LOLA said...

Maybe I'm just too drunk to notice, but I don't think I've had any problems. Good luck to those of you who are not as happy and shit-faced as I am.

Love,
Lola

Mrs. Tuna said...

Can you people see the list of my followers?

Stupid blogger, stupid, stupid, stupid (insert foot stamping measures here)

Mary said...

The only problem I'm having is with blogger. i have to click the picture and post about 10 times before it will go into the post.

Shawn said...

I am having the same problems! I am not able to log in with Safari but can get into the blog (no log in) with Firefox. I am ready to change to WP, but do not know how to transfer three blogs over without paying through the nose.

I like Lola's answer..I have to have a glass of wine before I sit at the computer or I will go Postal!!

I hope you have a great weekend..I am sure, next week at this time, Blogger will still have their head up their ass!

More Milestones said...

I haven't had any problems with Blogger - don't hate. : )
However, I am concerned about the possibility of losing info.
I would have made the jump to .com but I'm a little overwhelmed over the thought.

kalea_kane said...

The Follow thing is driving me crazy too. I thought it was my computer until I checked it at work. Stinks. Still it was nice popping over to your blog on Follow Friday 40 and Over. I hope you can stop by for the heck of it.

PS Love the pic.

Uh-oh!!!! I'm not having any problems either (other than the problem that everyone was having where Blogger died for a day lol). I hope your problems are alleviated soon!
I have to tell you, I just read your profile again and laughed myself silly!
Love the new look to your blog too! Have a great holiday weekend!

Still here!!!

Brahm (alfred lives here) said...

I know, I know, blogger is annoying the bejeezus out of me this week, like asking me to sign in 47 times! Okay 5, but felt like 47....

Laggin said...

Hmmm...I'm not having problems. I use safari and chrome.

Heather said...

I am so mad too. I can't post on half of the blogs I read.
And I KNOW people are just dying to comment on my site.
:)
Have a great weekend.

The Defiant Marshmallow said...

Well, I can choose to believe that:

Blogger is having major issues.

Or,

People think my writing is as fresh and of the same quality it was when I was six years old, and are ignoring me and leaving no comments.

I'm going with the Blogger having issues thingy.

Solidarity, Mrs. Tuna!

melody-mae said...

I am here from the boost your blog party...lol what I fun blog here! I too have had nothing but problems with blogger this month. Blogger was down first, then I lost the ability to do any commeting and then today I lost my followers...ugh. I noticed they are back now so what is next???? wow!!!

Yo sista! Don't worry we are all still here. Blogger is a pile of shit. I can't believe they can't get their act together. I hope you get your problems sorted out. Time to look into Wordpress me thinks!

Laoch of Chicago said...

Hate mail is very therapeutic.

Red Nomad OZ said...

Looks like the follower thing has been dodgy all over the world today! But hang on - maybe it's a kind of 'rapture'??!!

Mom of the Perpetually Grounded said...

What? Let me check something....WTH! Where are my followers! They're probably holding them ransom for beer money.

The Onion said...

I have had drama this week as well with comments and have heard the same from others. Grrr.

This is my official solidarity comment.

Catherine Dabels said...

Blogger ate my followers as well. Which is just so insanely rude I may have to send my own official nasty hate mail letter. Seriously. Not my followers!

lvankuiken said...

Oh, Blogger has been giving me headaches this month too! I am so seriously frustrated...thinking about switching to wordpress, but I just hate starting all over just when I have mine the way I like it (design, feed, etc.)

Clare and Gary said...

Gary and I still love you, even when you don't feed us!

Hilary said...

I hear your pain. It was so frustrating.. However, since it happened while i was doing my "move" I thought the issues were only my issues. I drove all the techno people in my life crazy trying to solve them, until they realized they were global issues and not "hilary" issues.

TanyasTreasureTrove said...

Hi! I'm following you from Social Parade!
I hope you visit me and return the follow:0)

For the last few days I was having the same
problems. But seems like it's back to normal
now. We'll see.

I Wonder Wye said...

Yeah my followers disappeared for 3 days but I decided to ignore it and hope it would eventually sort itself out -- not knowing what to do if it didn't, my computer guru out of the country - but fortunately it did today...weird...your little blood-lusting dog is channeling more birdies into its mouth, is it? Sometimes dreams do come true...

Cyn said...

Grrrrrrrrrrrrr @ BloGGer!

Lovin’ your blog!

Nikki said...

Hopefully they'll get bloggers issues fixed soon. I have my own domain and use wordpress, but I read a lot of blogs that use blogger.

Morela said...

Yes, all this is very frustrating. I'm hoping that Blogger will be better after all of this. I'm a new follower. Can't wait to read more of your blog.

The Mommy Therapy said...

Blogger has been almost as annoying as my children the day after a sleepless night...almost. I don't understand what the problem is.

Definitely understand your wanting to wait to post!

visiting from the blog hop!

nice to meet you!

2ndheartmom said...

Thanks for the comment over at Old Mom New Tricks! I am glad you visited and look forward to reading your blog. Especially since I need some help with cooking and I don't even know how to make Chicken A La King! :)

Sandra said...

Thank goodness it wasn't just me...I'm switching to Wordpress. I've been told that not only will we avoid the probs we've had with Blogger, but we'll get more traffic! Think about it, I can get you the name of the girl who is doing it for me for super cheap! Traffic! Traffic!....well, I'm a ho, I can never deny my nature! Join me in the quest to rule the world...well, whatever, just join me!

Lyuba @ Will Cook For Smiles said...

Awesome! I love this post. I completely agree!! Whatta heck is going on with Blogger...driving me bananas!
Thanks for a nice comment!

Kimberly said...

Team tuna? I die. This is my first visit. I hope that you shook your fists in the air...stupid google.

LisaWeidknecht said...

Hi. I'm a new follower. Follow me too?

Kathy (p/t writer, f/t mom) said...

ahhhhh... blogger was screwy! I thought I broke my blog but alas, it was them!! Unless, of course, rut roh -- maybe i did! Luuuuuv the hate mail: was it to you or from you to blogger?
am talking to a twitter friend to abandon ship for WP. this may make me jump.

The Empress said...

Oh, blogger...why don't we all just jump ship to WP?

Because talking HTML code scares me more...

The Rheinlander's said...

Ditto : ) I have switched to Firefox and had less issues... not sure why!! I'm following from I love my online friends blog hop! Looking forward to your post!!!
