(There's a discussion further down about it.) I notified Blogger Support via the help form. It took Blogger a few days, but they deleted the old one, notified me and I was able to reclaim it myself.

All My Blogs Have Disappeared!!! - PLEASE HELP!! - 6 new -------- Word to the wise. If your blogs disappear, immediately try to reclaim the names. When this happened to me that is what I did and blogger support was able to restore my blog to a different name and then I was able to publish back to the original. Also, I would not come here and post the url.

If Blogger is not up and running to 100% -- which I guess it is not since so many are posting complaints -- how come they don´t inform us about the actual status?

I can't do a damn thing in blogger, but I can get to the status page. Of course, it doesn't say a thing about what issue is turning the service into a crap heap right now. Are they that understaffed? Or indifferent. ....? - Wed, Jun 7 2006 7:23 pm 1 message, 1 author Feed not update, RSS, Atom - 4 new ---------------------------------- My feed has the first 7 posts I made on my blog. When I publish a new post, it doesn't show in the feed. For months I've been trying to fix this, but nothing seems to work.

Hmmmm...? None of that is very nice news to read...
I do blog on blogger
and [touch wood], to date I've had not a single issue.
One of my blogs has been going for just under 3 years, another for two years and all the rest for almost a year. Not an issue with any of them, all that time.
Interesting info. Kenneth and I'll consider it. Thank you.
Do you have any feedback about WordPress and other blogging options too?

Perhaps the problems were occuring as they were taking their new software through BETA testing?  It just came out of BETA about a week ago, and as one who has fourteen blogs on their system, I personally give them a BIG THUMBS UP.  You can take a look at some of my blogs if you like:

Washington Scandal

Almost The News

Green Nuclear Butterfly

Congressman John Hall

Anyway, hope this helps explain any problems you have been hearing about.
