I Am Fed Up!

Is any one else having trouble making comments?  I sign in and resign in, write a comment, and sign in is requested again!!!!  I have had trouble with downloading pictures.

I hope y'all don't think I am high-hattin' you because I can't comment!

I have viewed excellent photography, read how awful the weather is, walked  the streets of Jerusalem and the isles of a grocery store.  I have seen dogs in training, hens alayin', and cats a playin'. I have viewed wonderful gardens, farms, livestock and setting hens. I have read of good fortune and tea parties...but I could not comment.  I am so aggravated I could spit!!!

I don't know about you but where I come from, being fed up and mad enough to spit is pretty mad...almost as mad as a wet hen.

Am I alone?  Do I need to abandon Blogger and try WordPress? 

Please, leave a comment...IF YOU CAN!

I know one or two have been having problems on my blog as well. It's annoying and absolutely ridiculous that Blogger are allowing this to happen. I wonder if they even care anymore. So many people must have moved to WordPress this past week after Blogger deleted posts and comments yet they still don't seem to have got their act together.

I, too, am having problems with Blogger. I have 3 different accounts and it won't let me sign out of one, so I cannot update my other two blogs! Arrrrrgggghhhh!!! It's frustrating. I've left comments on the "help" section, but this is the second day.

Sometimes blogger has problems as all websites do, it will pan out and work properly again soon , I had a problem just last week with blogger it is due to them updating things, I know what ya mean though it is anoying. Dont leave blogger please we love your blog and any site ya go to will have probs as well they all update ! Have a good day !

Jo said...

I know what you mean, Gail. I spent about 30 minutes posting and re-posting, signing in and resigning in to commont on a post and no joy. I wonder if this comment will go through. Hope it all pans out soon.

Shannon said...

I can't get the site to log me in for comments this morning, so I have to comment as "anonymous", but other than that it seems to be working OK. Actually, now it seems to have logged me in for comments...maybe it's fixed?

I love your blog. Just discovered it today, but I'll be following from now on. Thanks!

One day this week, I had to open a new account with Google before blogger would let me comment. I don't know what that was about. I got fed up, when Google wouldn't accept my password, finally after many tries it finally accepted it, and then I could leave comments again. Crazy cyber world we live in. Stop by Quotes and Things and read about rules for school teachers in 1915, funny, but it wouldn't have worked in your world. LOL....

I often have to click on Post a Comment more than once. In fact, I had to do it here. If you abandon blogger, you'll have to take the rest of us with you since you aren't alone.

I had a terrible time (and posted about it last night). Linda at 7MSN (http://www.the7msnranch.com/) suggested clearing my cache and cookies. It worked.

Good luck!

LindaG said...

I haven't had that problem recently, but I've had it before. It cleared up after 3 or 4 days...

I have a backup of my blogger on Wordpress. Wordpress can easily import everything from blogger. Posts and comments. That's one of the things I like about it.
It's smarter than I am though, so I can't figure out how to personalize it like my blogger without a lot of frustration on my part.
And they side columns are not as intuitive as they are on blogger so that is annoying (or as I said, I'm too dumb to figure it out).
So I'm with blogger until I get fed up totally.

Hope it clears up for you soon, Gail!

It's been the same for me Gail...so frustrating! But give it a little time. I think they might have it fixed today, at least I hope so! blessings, marlene

Nursejoan said...

Comments to the blogasphere mine have gone this past couple of weeks. Very frustrating indeed!! Misery love company but it sure isn't the company I would choose to keep! Have a great Thursday!

carolina nana said...

I hope Blogger doesn't have to more work because I wonder what we'll loose if that happens. I wonder why they are having so much trouble lately ?
I'm spending a lot of time working on my book,hopefully I'll get finished before blogger crashes all together !!
Have a blessed day.
Glad to see your hubbie out and about.

several people that I know were having trouble yesterday. not me though. sometimes I will click on 'comment' and it will tell me to sign in (which I already am obviously) so I just close the comment window and click again and it works.

C-ingspots said...

Yep, yep, yep...I've been having the same exact problems you've described here. Think of it this way my friend - if that's all you have to be spittin' mad about...count your blessings and pipe down!!

DesertHen said...

I had trouble posting comments yesterday, but things seem okay today. Modern Technology can be a pain in the rear at times. I imagine that Blogger has issues on a daily basis and very few affect us, but sometimes they do. Hang tight, I'm sure the good folks at Blogger are doing their best to correct the problems.

Sarah said...

my blog is definitely much quieter than usual so I wonder if people are having problems there? Or maybe I'm just dull!!! I have looked at Wordpress too, but have worked so hard on my blog that am reluctant to leave. xx

Queen-Size funny bone said...

obviously you are not alone. yesterday everytime i commented it came out 3x. then i had to go back and delete 2 of them. I have not beenable to post or publish anything since i came back from vacation. i have so much to share and can't...

IanH said...

You are not alone! I can't post any comments today! All i get is "Waiting for blogger.com"

Jules said...

Well I've been sick but I'm going to give it a try. Just wanted you to know I had not abandoned you :)

I learned this from another blog commenter today.
"Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...
the way around the blogger commenting error is to sign out of blogger and then sign back in, but to UNCLICK the "stay signed in" box.
Worked for me"

I'm going to share that on my blog tomorrow. Seems like the opposite of what you should do, but it worked for me, too.

Other than the recent comment trouble, I've liked using blogger.

Nora said...

It seems to be a North American problem as I've had no problems commenting here in Europe. Maybe it has something to do with all the storms you're having. Just a wild guess on my part.

Nezzy said...

It's not just you fair lady...others are spittin' in the same pool you are. Don't think that WordPress doesn't have it's troubles too!

Breathe in...breathe out...tomorrow is a new day! :o)

Have a great evening girl! :o)

Tamara said...

looks like alot of us are having problems leaving comments. :( I just complained about it on someone elses blog that is having problems also. Keeps me going in the same circle it does you...sign in then click comment...over and over again!! It does seem a little better tonight tho, i haven't had it happen to me yet. There is hope!!!! lol

Sue said...

I've heard people are having trouble, too. So far, I've been okay as a commenter, but I'll bet I've missed some comments on my blog.

I hope Blogger gets it straight and soon!

I've heard other bloggers having the same issues. I've been thinking about WordPress myself but am scared that I'll mess up and lose everything. Still mulling it over.

Nancy said...

I noticed that my Google Friend Connect gadget had changed and I'm thinking when Blogger made some changes to that -- it monkeyed up the sign in function.

I've heard if you sign out of GFC, it might help. Couldn't hurt to try! :)

Seven Gates Farm said...

Yep, same as everyone above and all the post on blogger help say the same. Just found you but having trouble signing on to follow.Hopefully, you'll get this and I'll check in with you later. Debi

*~*~*~*~Tonia said...

I have been having the same trouble. Except if it shows my name like it is now then I have no trouble leaving a comment but if i have to pick an identity to sign in with it make sme do it over and over till I give up!
