Under the Mercy of Blogger.com

Something wrong to my blog yesterday, I can open, see and read the posts but I cannot do other things.

Every time I want to reply to comments, compose post, edit or do other things on my blog, there would be a message from the administrator of Blogger.com saying that their site was unavailable, and I should click open another page to get more details.

After I clicked, there was another message from said administrator saying that on Friday, 13 May 2011, their site will be unavailable for almost the whole day.

This morning, I can finally open my blog but found that many of the comments were missing, however I can now reply to comments, edit etc. Thank God!

I am aware that Blogger.com is a free domain and web hosting services that enable people to make and maintain blogs, therefore they can do anything they want to their site.
And although I have been using my own domain, which I obtained and paid via Blogger.com since last December however as long as I am still using Blogger.com's web hosting,  I would always be under the mercy of Blogger.com.

Considering the above, I would like to apologize to my visitors of my blog for the inconveniences. I hope that you would all have a wonderful weekend with your loved ones.

Hi Harry, we were all at the mercy of Blogger over the past 2 days and that was very frustrating especially as posts went missing etc. Finally it is back up and we can carry on. Not ideal but even internet giants need to service things...

Hi Luke,
I agree with you that even internet giant like Google and its Blogger need to service things.

Yes, I couldn't post Thursday either. It's working well now except for some quirks with labels.

Hi Harry, you are not alone. I had my share of inconvenience when some of the photos in my blog would disappear and I am not aware what happens.

It is good I just posted just now. I had been too busy lately. Glad to be back to WWW again.

Interesting! Free service has always its cost. I use blogger too andlucky I was so busy at work during workdays so I was not able to notice this problem. Thay have problem from time to time but they fix it so it's okay with me.... it's free after all.

Happy to see comments of your sitge ( and of your fellow blogger.com bloggers) are back :).

Friday the 13th... Must have been some hacker with a weird sense of homour.

setahu saya, blogger.com termasuk engine free yang stabil, mas harry. kok tumben ada error-nya juga, ya. tapi syukurlah, sekarang dah normal kembali, kan. salam ngeblog.

i was super annoyed because most of the comments on my previous post went missing! and a day without reading blogs is always torture for me.

ini benar benar kesalahan manusia, yang salah menghitung. semoga tahun depan tidak terulang lagi

@Linda
Let's hope that if blogger wants to do this things again they would let us know in advance.

@Jolly Princess,
I am glad that to see again on the www, and things seem to be okay now so we can blog again.

@Triesti,
Yes it was very weird indeed.

@Frau Bloggerin,
It is free so we must understand and accept it as it is.

@Colson,
Friday the 13th? maybe that was the reason, ha ha ha

@Sawali,
Anda benar mas, sebenarnya selama ini blogger.com cukup stabil.

@Furree Katt,
I thought that I was the only one who was super annoyed.

@Wisata Murah,
Iya, mudah2an tidak terulang lagi atau paling tidak kita diberitahu lebih dahulu.

Harry, yes we always realise that we are all at the mercy of any online services even though we have paid some money to get the upgrade of the service. However, we have to be thankful for small mercies provided by them, otherwise it is impossible for us to know each other like we do today! :)

Multibrand said...

@Yari,
Yes we should be thankful for the mercy that they have provided to us because it has enable to know and meet with many friends around the world.

@Dhana,
I am very happy to see you again here. Thanks.

@R10,
Iya karena itu banyak yang bilang bahwa penyebabnya adalah Friday the 13th.

@Utomo,
Thank you Pak, I hope you enjoy your weekend too.

Blogger is really free but if you really wanted to get full control your blog and still earn money, you should get reseller hosting services.
