Blogger Woes...Help???!!!

There's nothing else for me to conclude than that my blog has been somehow possessed by a mutant Lego monster who finds joy in rearranging all my hard work, and eating those integral little pieces that help all the bigger parts come together.

Gah!!!

My Blogger woes started -- I think -- when I downloaded the new version of Internet Explorer (version 9, I think). I was no longer able to publish a post in regular fashion...I had to save it as a draft, and then publish from my dashboard.

This wasn't too crazy, but I couldn't then go back and edit posts (without deleting them and starting over)...and Blogger was toying with my spacing, too, which also drives me NUTSO!

Then I noticed that the titles of my posts didn't seem to function as links. And -- related to that, I think -- I had several folks tell me that my posts weren't linked in Google Reader.

And then yesterday, after I published a (very poorly-spaced) post, my blogroll seemed to disappear! I finally found it last night, at the very bottom of my blog. The crazy thing is that I can look at my "Design" tab and everything looks in order.

HELP!!!!!!!!!!

Does anyone have any counsel? I don't mean to over-exaggerate, but I just feel all out of sorts!!!

ask Jayme Tate - okay she's on WP but is a genius nevertheless :)

That's all I can say because I have NO idea on the why.

I noticed this too but I though it was just me. I believe it is a Windows problem since I have the same issues publishing when I use my cousin's computer.

As a mac enthusiast, I strongly suggest solving the problem with a new macbook. :)

Haha...I like Mandy's solution!

I don't know what's wrong and it's not like you could EVER get someone to help you from Blogger...it's impossible. Good luck!

Oh no! I don't know what to tell you. Ask the twitter gals, people on twitter know EVERYTHING! That's why I love twitter so much. They make all of my decisions for me.

I wish I had some helpful advice. We haven't installed the new Explorer version yet, because I heard that it has some glitches.

My dad does computers for a living. I'll see if he has any helpful advice. Can't promise anything, but I can check.

All I know is that my husband the programmer thinks that Internet Explorer is the absolute worst of the worst when it comes to web browsers. Maybe try Firefox or Chrome?? I hope it gets fixed - I know how frustrating that stuff can be!

I wish I could help, but I don't have any experience posting on Blogger. However, I still find myself very frustrated with Blogger sometimes. It often give me an error message when I try to comment on your posts. If I wait a while and try again, it's fine, but it's annoying to have to wait. Worse is when Blogger goes down for maintenance. The weekend that I was in Austin, I was all set to catch up on posts, but Blogger was down the whole time.

I hope you find a way to make it keep working for you. If not, there's always Wordpress.
