I'm Giving Up On Blogger!

It's now 3.02am.

For the past one hour, I have been trying to access my posts without success. Despite reloading and refreshing countless times, I have not been able to go to my list of posts.

There is no problem writing a new post. But once I click "Publish Post" I will get an error message from Blogger. I will never know if my post is successfully published until I see it appears on my blog.

I have written two new posts to be scheduled for today at a later time and for Saturday (March 27th). But the posts were not really complete and I have yet to proofread them. Furthermore, I still have a few more photos to be included in my next post.

But sadly, there is NO WAY to do edit my 2 upcoming posts.

There is no way because I SIMPLY COULD NOT ACCESS THEM. Clicking on the "Edit Posts" button on my Blogger Dashboard resulted in an error message.

Clicking on the refresh button was of no help at all, and I had been doing that for the past one hour!

I can only hope that my post which will be coming out later today will turn out well. The same with my scheduled post on Saturday.

Maybe it's time I get my own domain and use WordPress platform.

All I know is that I have complained to Blogger many times but they have not been able to solve the problem. Either they are not doing their best or they don't care.

In any case, Blogger sucks BIG TIME!

Enough is enough! I'm giving up on Blogger!!

    how about buying a new domain and choose a wordpress platform. in that way, your foongpc.blogspot.com will still be accesible for your readers. evry time they access your blogspot.url, they will be redirected in your new domain.... However, for me, until now, i find word press html editor quite complicated....
    By the way, i experience the same thing with blogger last night. As in, it took forever to load... so frustrating
    by the way thank for the answers in my questionnaires buddy

    These things happen and I feel your frustration but then you must remember that Blogger is a FREE platform so cannot really scream at them too much la ... hehehe ...

    But its happened to me before but for me it came back to normal within a few hours. Hope yours get fixed soon :D

    I do get problems with Blogger once in a while. But they do recover after a few hours, or at least the next day.

    If your mind is set to have your own domain well congratz to you, one level up. Or maybe one last try as what HappySurfer mentioned regarding your new third party template could give you the problem which I got a feeling it is quite possible. Why not do a test revert back to your old template or get a new Blogger's template and check out the problem whether it still haunt you? As for me I will never ever give up until I find out the proximate cause. My 2 sen. tQ

    I don't get problems with Blogger. But I do have major problems with streamyx. No internet connection for at least 12 hours every night for the past few weeks!

    Not sure if its the browser or the *virus*. I cannot access to your blog using Google Chrome. The result would be ~ [This webpage is not available]. But others like Wyzo or Firefox or IE no issue. Any IT expert to comment on this I am also an *ID ten T* in IT. tQ

    i only had a problem once ie my web site could not be assessed for a day.

    Hmmm...I'm definitely not an IT person but from my own experience with having publishing and commenting problems, I found that it was my browser not Blogger than was the root cause of my problem. After I converted to Firefox, I have zero problem (knock on wood) with Blogger. You might want to look into your browser and upgrade to something else.

    I have sort of a similar problem when using blogger in ie. Posting is near impossible since I get error message and ie would restart over and over again.

    Then I tried using firefox, and it was ok. still need to install some add ons all the time because blogger doesn't seem to want to work with firefox, but besides that, I can post just fine.

    Since then, I read blogs using ie and post using firefox. Maybe that will change soon when I upgrade to windows 7.

    But its also nice to have your own domain using wordpress. Good luck, whichever way you decide to get around it.

    But do remember to make a backup copy for all your blog post thus far when migrating to wordpress.

    I do get those BX errors once in a while. When that happens, I just go back and try again. Most times, that worked but if not, I'll do something else and come back to it again. So far, so good - no bother though a few times I've experienced not being able to access my blog! Horrors! That too passed.

    Are you using a third party blogger template? If so, could that be the reason why Blogger staff is not responding to you that well? Just my guess.

    Are you sure you want your own domain? It might put your blog on a different level (URL-wise) but it would make no difference unless yours is a niche blog vying for business. Free blogs do get access to higher PR just like own-domain blogs.

    Personally, Blogger is easy to use and they are constantly adding new features to better the experience. I know WP takes some learning. Perhaps you'd like the challenge?

    My two cents. Best wishes.

    Many people blog, and many people make their living from blogging. But have you ever wondered what is the best blogging platform?
