I am back again - or is that a maybe?

It's been a while since I last posted, but not through lack of trying. Blogger would not let me access my dashboard in any manner or form for some time now.

Internet Explorer rendered a blank page whenever I signed in to my dashboard and Google Chrome still won't even let me view my blog on line - it informs me that "It doesn't look like you have been invited to read this blog. If you think that this is a mistake, you might want to contact the blog author and request an invitation."

"Hello Google, I am the blog author and have been since 8 July 2007, nothing has changed"

After a few posts on the Blogger forum, changing passwords, some cursing and much frustration my blog finally became accessible again in Internet Explorer. Alas Google Chrome still wants me to contact the blog author, which is not a problem as I am in constant contact with myself. I have checked all the settings and still nothing has changed - so my browser of choice remains IE.

My intention was to publish a photo with this post, but after several unsuccessful attempts I realise that this is not going to happen.

Is it only me or has Google lost the plot?

Welcome back, hopefully!

That really is the pits, being excluded from accessing one's own blog! I use Safari, and everything works fine. Every few months Blogger becomes spotty, when they are doing some readjusting of layouts or the like.

Best wishes,
Merisi

Yikes! Glad to see (above) that you qpparently got things solved. I blog on Typepad and they were hit last month by a "Malicious Denial of Service" (whatever that is) that lasted more than a week ...couldn't access Typepad OR my blog (nobody could) .. I was in fear that I would lose my whole blog forever. It came back and we figured out how to back up the blog just in case it ever does happen again.

Unfortunately, when something does happen at Blogger, it seems to happen in spades. Glad to see you are back. I spend time every day on the forum--if you have problems in the future, please e-mail me and I will try to expedite help.

Luckily I haven't had any problems with Blogger yet
