Huh???

Did anybody else have problems with Blogger the last couple of days? My post about my boys totally disappeared for a day and then reappeared with the comments gone. For one horrible moment I thought all my comments on all posts would be gone, but it's OK they're still there. It's made me think about doing a backup of my blog though, does anybody know how to do that? I'd appreciate any help :-)

Ah yes it has been very glitchy... Blogger had some major issues, it is all outlined on their official blog: http://buzz.blogger.com/

Apparently they had to delete some posts from Wednesday and Thursday, and they've since restore those. I think they are still working on adding back other data, like some comments and such.

Yeah, it was down for about 24 hours - did wonder at first if it was just me; had I crossed some unknown blogging line, etc, but eventually some status message appeared. Bit like the days of British Rail - its ok if there's a problem, but when they tell ya nothing its GGGRRRR. Ditto about back-up - good idea.

Hello, I'm a new follower of your blog, from Queensland. I too had trouble with blogger yesterday... One thing I have done is to "follow" my own blog, then the contents of it automatically go into google reader. I decided to do this after one of the blogs I was following was discontinued by its author and she took all of her posts down. When I discovered all her posts were still in my google reader, I had the brainwave to follow myself, in case somehow, my blog was ever wiped out.
I love your little blog. My husband and I love to collect and use both antique and vintage items. Although I haven't photographed any of our collections yet, I have in the past, done a few photo posts on some of our vintage books. I like what you've done with your boys room and playroom. We have 2 older girls and 2 year old twin boys and are in the process of emptying a room, to create a room for our boys. You've inspired me, as we too live in a rental.
Bless you
Claire PS I collect pyrex, Fire King and vintage Kitchenalia, too.

I had my blog taken away from my me a few weeks ago, just deleted, so I thought it happened again. This time, the code they gave me lead to nothing. The previous code just led to people going "what happen!? why was I given this code!?" I eventually found out what happened & got my blog back.

This time around it looked weird, so I took it over to DOWN FOR EVERYONE OR JUST ME and it told me Blogger was down for everyone. WHEW!

Glad we're all back!

I tried to leave a comment on the last post and first it wouldn't work then it disappeared! I love that photo of the boys. Not sure how to back up a blog, there must be a way though. Maybe you can copy it into wordpress?

My comments from Wednesday and Thursday were deleted, and the whole Thursday post was chomped! Even in the draft mode. Luckily I was able to copy and paste the post from Google reader.

I might write a post of backing up blog data. It would be so sad to see all out hard work disappear in the blink of an eye!

Yup, it was frustrating. I didn't lose any posts but I couldn't post for a day or two and lost some comments and can't get 'em back. Would be scary if the bloggosphere just went POOF! eh?
