Sigh.

I am having difficulties with my blog at the moment.
When I go to my dashboard it tells me I am not following any blogs.   Eventually, after much refreshing, it will admit that I am following blogs.
And will show me the blog of the person who posted most recently.  And only that one.  When I hit 'view more' it declines.
Hiss and spit.
Hopefully this glitch will be fixed sooner rather than later.
I will be back viewing your blogs when I can.

  2. I remember that from years ago. Blogger doing background stuff or something. All I did was switch off and leave it for a couple of hours. it happened a few times, but not lately.

  4. Thought you'd like to know wordpress has been having hissy fits all day today. Don't know if I'm the only one it's not happy with but it certainly took it out on me today. I'm hoping this comment goes through because only one of them has done so today lol
    Take care

  11. Compared with Facebook the blog world works quite well. I've not had many problems lately which is just as well as I am so darned ignorant when it comes to trying to correct faults.
    I do hope it soon comes good for you EC as you know how much you mean to us and we just need you to be there as much as possible. You inspire us so much.

  12. Hiss and spit a thousand times. I think it has been almost two months since blogger aloud me to get into my own blog. It started with a little glitch here and there, then the whole thing imploded. I, also, had to click on each blog I had on my blog roll to see if they had posted.

    Technology becomes such a big part of our lives, that when it's down we're sort of left in mid-air as to what to do. Hope it's sorted soon.

  39. UGH! I confess, as awful and crazy-making as WordPress is, I'm glad not to be dependent on Google/Blogger anymore, especially after they suddenly up and got rid of Reader. All they have to do is decide blogging isn't part of their corporate package anymore and, voila, bye-bye Blogger. I don't think they really want to support a blogging platform anymore.

    At any rate, I really hope it gets fixed soon! Have you thought of an external reader, such as Feedly? It would be a big nuisance to move, however…? Yuck. @#$%!

  43. Hi Sue,

    Hiss and spit! This idiotic issue with Blogger is a constant occurrence with me. And yes, after several refreshing of the site, hey presto, my dashboard has everybody return. I'm using several sources to find out what's happening these days. I subscribe to latest posts by you. However, that's about a 24 hour delay. Remember that fiasco where we couldn't follow new blogs and the crazy workaround?

  46. Every now and then blogger plays up. Have you downloaded any updates recently? If you are running Internet Explorer 11 I would strongly advise to downgrade it to 9. I downloaded 11 by mistake (I'm happy with 9) and it messed up my blog.

    I hope it's all sorted soon.

  51. I assume your blog problem is solved by now.

    What a long book list you have, my dear. I rarely read anything new, and am right now enjoying "The Octopus" by Frank Norris. it's naturalistic American fiction (before Norris and Dreiser, American fiction had largely been of the "romantic" designation) that's a bit over a hundred years old, which is about what I prefer.
