Blogger Outage In North America

Over the past weekend, numerous bloggers in various areas of North America (Canada / USA) have reported an problem
Blogger is currently unavailable
when trying to login to Blogger / access the dashboard, and to publish posts. The problem is most frequently reported by bloggers in the MidWestern regions of Canada / USA, but has been reported in Canada as far west as British Columbia.

In the rollup discussion, Blogger Support provides a status
Thanks for your patience and help everyone. This is now fixed.

Some idea of the scope of the problem might help Blogger focus on the problem a bit. If you are observing this problem, some details would be good.
  • What ISP do you use?
  • Where are you located (City, State, Country)?
  • A PathPing or TraceRt log might be useful.

I can NOT EVEN BEGIN to tell you how LIVID I am about this "isolated access issues in certain regions" crap! I just dreamed up the most read-worthy online-content I've dreamed up IN WEEKS. WHY did this have to happen TODAY OF ALL DAYS??? WHY???

#sigh Okay, nobody panic, I'm calm now. I really am grateful for the opportunity to vent about this to someone who actually understands #smilesandhugs (I get so annoyed at online-community-members who just assume that "If it works just fine on MY computer, it should work just fine on YOUR computer unless YOU YOURSELF are doing something wrong" #ReallyPissesMeOff )

It is a good thing that I've got other blogs on other sites, although this Blogger Dot Com site really does seem to be more popular (or so I've been told, anyhow)

Anyhow, I guess it's all good or whatever (btw: You've just acquired a new subscriber to this blog: Me #smilesandhugs )
Glad I checked your blog yesterday. I wasn't having any problem but some of my blogging friends were and I sent them your link.

Custom Domain Migration - Managing The Traffic

Your blog depends upon traffic for its success.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog. Publishing the blog to a custom domain, like renaming the blog, will affect traffic to your blog. The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers. People who find your blog because of recommendations by other people.Search engines. Robotic processes which methodically surf your blog, and provide dynamic indexing to people who search for information.Subscribers. People who read your content from their newsfeed reader, such as the dashboard Reading List.Viewers. People who read your content from their browser.No two blogs are the same - and no two blogs will have the same combinations of traffic sources.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
