Blogger Issue

I have read plenty of complaints about Blogger. Until this week, I personally have been very happy with my service--being that it's free and all, but now I join the ranks of the disgruntled.

For some reason, it seems folks who view my blog through certain readers cannot view any of the text. The same thing happens when I try to access specific posts through the Blogger dashboard.

I've tried a few things to rectify the issue, but so far nothing has worked. The particularly frustrating part is that I went to the Blogger Help group and have had no replies either.

I'm pretty sure this all started when I signed up for a feedburner account. I've since deactivated it and removed the code from my blog, but it is still happening. I'm hoping that publishing a new post might help. Or that some wonderful reader may know a trick to fix this.

Would you do me a favor and let me know what reader you use or how access this blog. That way I can try to rule things out.

thanks!!

I havent had any problems with your site. I view you through Internet Explorer and I dont use any of the feeds.

Hope you get fixed, soon.

Move to WordPress! :)

No problems with Google Reader with Firefox 2.0. Good luck!

Suburban Oblivion said...

I know what the problem is- Blogger sucks. Get a wordpress setup.

I use firefox and it looks ok.

Oh, The Joys said...

I use google reader and it was happening to me, but not right this moment...

Jhianna said...

I use Google Reader on Firefox 2.0.0.2 and haven't had any problems.

Whatever you did worked.

And I second the suggestion to move to Wordpress!

I was and am using Bloglines. I can see you now using the same. I'm glad you got it resolved, but I see all your pretties are gone. What a huge bummer. I know...I was very frustrated with Blogger a couple months ago and ready to jump ship, but...I'm essentially lazy AND I resist change, so here I still am.

Firefox here too and no problems with your site. My website is with Movable Type. The hubs is a computer junkie and did research to feel it was the best at the time. But I hear a lot of good things about WordPress, too.

Good luck.

I use Mozilla Firefox. Hope it helps! I've heard from a few that have problems viewing mine, but I think it had something to do with them having MACs.

MamaLee said...

I can read you fine thru bloglines!

Jill said...

bloglines, no problem...but wordpress rocks!

Janet a.k.a. "Wonder Mom" said...

I haven't had a problem either. I read through bloglines on firefox but when I am on your site I see everything ..I think.

Beth said...

I use Firefox (and have a Mac) and can see all your text.
(I guess you changed your blog layout though? All different.)

Terri said...

I've never had a problem and I have not idea what a reader is??
I am not computer literate...

All I can say is I open up blogs from Internet Explorer and AOL...
is that it??

Attila The Mom said...

Argghh! I can see it just fine.

My big beef with the new blogger is that I have to RE-SIGN in every single damn time I navigate away from the page.

My cookies are enabled, so what in the world? grrr

Vampdaddy said...

I view through Safari. I don't have any problems viewing, but dealing with my own blog through Safari is frustrating.

I've been considering moving my blog to my own site (using .mac) but the jury is still out on that one. Ugh -- good luck!

Queen of the Mayhem said...

Is it scary that I don't even know what a reader is?

I just click off my links and go to the different blogs.

I may need to get with the program!

Hope you get it fixed!

Queen of the Mayhem said...

Why am I NOT surprised that Terri and I are both slightly behind the times! :)

Birds of a feather......you know!

mamatulip said...

Another "Move to WordPress" vote here. WORDPRESS FOR PREZ!

I use Bloglines most of the time, Google Reader very sparsely. I haven't noticed any problems from your end, tho.

Pendullum said...

I am slowly, very slowly...Making the move over to WordPress...But I am taking my time...Have not posted there yet...
Keep me posted with what you chose to do...
And by the way I can read your post...Itc ame up fine!

Jill said...

I see you too. Via Bloglines on Safari. Maybe it was just a temporary problem.

karrie said...

Where are youoooooooooo?

PunditMom said...

Apparently it's happening with my blog, as well. I've gotten similar comments. I don't know whether to change hosts or if getting a new template will work (IzzyMom is working on a new one for me!)

pinks & blues girls said...

No problemo here... using IE (not sure which version, though)!

Wordpress has been wonderful to me!

I've been reading your previous posts and you are a fantastic writer! So engaging.

I'm reading with Firefox on a Mac and it looks perfect :)
