Blogger's Gone Kaflooey...

There are issues going on today, it seems...

This morning lots of people noticed a loss of followers and got all sad and sniffy (and by 'lots of people' I mean 'me'). I wondered what I had said. I wished people had told me why they were leaving. I wanted to conduct exit interviews. Then I found out it was a Blogger glitch. Apparently Blogger is going to be in touch with the people affected (the followers, not the followees) and let them know they have to go in and make themselves 'public' instead of 'anonymous' (but you can check on your own dashboard easily enough). Anyway, whew. I feel better now.

Also, as I was making my rounds and trying to leave comments on several blogs this evening, I noticed that the 'word verification loading' screen was getting stuck. So I couldn't leave my words of wisdom (and by 'words of wisdom' I mean 'rambling, incoherent asides'). Grrrrr. Yet another reason to lose your word verification, people!

And you know what I just noticed? I just noticed that the My Boy post I did this morning was my 200th! Damn. I knew it was coming up but it slipped on past... I wanted to do something all fantabulous. Oh well. Maybe for the 300th...

200? Wow! Congrats! That is mighty impressive! You are like a man, though. Forgetting his 10th Wedding Anniversary.

Congrats on your 200th post!!!!

It's traditional to do something fantabulous for the 201st.

Yeah, I got all sooky with Blogger and waiting for word verification to load on a couple of blogs. Ate some of my brilliant repartee, too.

blognut said...

Yeah, we already had this conversation today, didn't we? I'm drinking the kool-aid, see me over there on the follower list? I'm the blue face with the googly eyes. Trust me, it's better than the real thing.

Happy 200th Diane. Sheesh, I gotta get busy and catch up on all your old stuff. xo

Lee said...

Kaflooey indeed.

Happy 200th.

Summer said...

Exit interviews. I. Love. It!

Braja said...

it was me. I put a yogic curse on all word verification.

but i didn't touch the follower thing. everyone lost on that. apparently it's a glitch they'll fix...

Terri said...

I've had lots of Blogger problems lately - disappearing and - fortunately - reappearing posts and trying to leave comments and stuff just not working right. Come on, people. I pay you good pretend money for this service! Get your crap together.

Happy 200th. And many more.

It's actually quite nice to read of others having problems, thought it was just me. The word veri. thing has always been the bane of my life, sometimes not loading, sometimes partially loading, and when it does load I can't read it!

Protege said...

LOL Diane, I lost followers yesterday as well and was wondering if my blog has become boring.;)) Thanks for clearing that up!
I too have problems with the verification, hmm, odd.;))
And congrats on your 200 post;, it has gone so fast! I remember your 100!,))

Good lord, Diane, we are going to have to start e-mailing one another in advance, for we're even blogging on the same subjects now!!!

I have never been concerned at the number of followers - It was lovely that it was rising, and all that - But losing one struck me to the heart!!! Madness that way lies, methinks!

Congrats so on your 200th post - Well done for always being charming, wonderful and entertaining!

I am sick to the eye teeth of the WV sticking on others' sites now too, so that you can't even leave comments - I have disabled mine after Braja's and Lee's recent posts about them being time-wasting.

Have a great week, D! xox

sherri said...

I also tried leaving several comments last night that I had to dessert because of the stuck VW thingy.

I am enjoying a VW free zone! (Check out my new graphic for it- I got permission from an Italian lady who created it, to use it on my site!)
Yeah, I quit just lurking and stealing off sites since that dang copyright graphic has popped up all over the place!

Michelle said...

Your 200th post is indeed fantabulous.

Congrats on 200 and I hope you go to 1000!!!

WOOOHOOOO!!!!

Heather said...

200?? WOW...I'm at 80 something. Maybe if I was a more faithful poster...I'll work on that!
Hope your followers all get sorted out! :) And I had the same problem with word verification yesterday.. I HATE THOSE THINGS!!

Andy said...

Congrats on 200... I can't believe I've written that many, either.
As for word verification, I know that when I stopped using it, I got porn spammers. But, on the other hand, that was kind of fun. Maybe I'll stop using it again.

And I'll never stop following you, Diane. I'm the lemming to your cliff.

Blu said...

Ah fangs for explaining...I was having problemos too...

Your dog is adorable...

blueviolet said...

I noticed that with the word verification too so there were several blogs that I couldn't comment on yesterday. I'm not sure about today yet. I'm just starting my orbit.

lisa said...

Blogger is getting a real attitude...first they only let you follow 200 blogs and now the loss of followers.....What's up with that?

Congrats on 200!

Jenners said...

Hmmmmmmm...sounds AWFULLY suspicious to me that the 200th post just slipped on past. Sounds to me like SOMEONE is being LAZY or something and didn't want to do anything fantabulous. I'm onto you Diane! I'm onto you!

200th? Good for you... and all your posts are fantabulous, btw.

Got to turn a blind eye to the comments/followers numbers. It will make you crazy. ;)
