Breakdown at Blogspot.com Takes Out Tens of Thousands of Bloggers Worldwide

Including Capt. Spaulding's World...


We've being TRYING to post since yesterday (Thursday) afternoon- but the host of this free service went down due to some unspecified problem- and remained out to anything but reading days-old posts until just recently.

More than 10 older CSW stories posted since Tuesday have disappeared.


There was no notification on blogspot.com about the unplanned outage until early Friday morning- more than 8 hours after the service went down.


The many thousands of bloggers affected took to social media- including Twitter- to spread the unhappy news.


By early Friday afternoon- blogger.com had managed to at least reinstate bloggers the ability to post on their blogs- which I'm doing with this story.



It is unknown when the missing posts and reader comments will appear if at all- or how long blogger/blogspot.com remains up.





It's a free service- so you truly get what you pay for here....
