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.


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.


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'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.
