3 Strikes and You Are Out!

Yesterday I went to the Newport Aquarium in Newport, Kentucky. Incase you don't know where that is, it's literally right across the bridge from Cincinnati, Ohio. 

Blogger has been having a lot of issues lately or maybe it's that I'm having a lot of issues with them. Either way...I guess I'll have to post about that trip tomorrow because blogger is having some major issues and isn't letting me upload any of my photos. And what good would a post all about my trip there be without photos? Exactly... bad!  Strike 1 Blogger.

Last Wednesday, I bought a custom domain through blogger and since then it has not worked. You're suppose to be able to just purchase it and blogger does the rest for transferring everything and redirecting. Well I went to my settings to make sure that I've got the redirecting set up. I do
AND IT'S STILL NOT WORKING 

Does anyone know why this would be? It's been a week and when you type in the address it just won't even go there. It says not found. Then if you type in my blogspot for it that I had, it won't even go to it as well. HELP!  Strike 2 blogger...

AHH! I think i read yesterday that they were working on something with photo uploading, but that was only supposed to be for a couple hours yesterday evening, starting at 5pm.

I went ahead and purchased aprofessorswife.com... over @wordpress last week. I weighed the options, did a crapload of research about it, pros and cons of both blogger and wp, and alas, wordpress won. I won't be launching that for a while, but it's there... waiting. I'm sure you'll get the kinks worked out - apparently Blogger is a bit on the fritz in several departments right now. Hang in there!

I hear ya girl, I was having trouble yesterday too... guess that's why yesterday's post was posted sooo late at night ;-)

Happy Wednesday Dear! I'll check back...

Image uploads will be disabled for two hours due to maintenance at 5:00PM PDT Wednesday, Oct. 20th. Learn more: according to dashboard. =)

Well that sounds like a huge pain in the ass! Wish I had some advice for you:(

Well right now Blogger has a thing on the dashboard saying that photos won't be uploading at certain points today. So maybe that's the picture issue.

As for the domain issue I have no idea. I purchased my domain through blogger awhile ago and it went through just fine. That's strange =-(

I am not a fan of blogger and still can't figure out half the stuff. I'm so sorry for all your problems. Good luck with everything!

Oh girl, I'm SO with you on not liking Blogger right now. I've been having the WORST luck getting pics to upload lately. I think they are doing some kind of maintainance tonight at 5 p.m., but that shouldn't have had any effect getting them up yesterday.

I'm tempted to try Wordpress....thoughts??

Wow, you are right be me! I even know someone that works there. Sadly, I've never been...ahha I guess that happens when you live somewhere, you don't visit the places that tourists would go. I do want to at some point though!

Don't worry about the pictures...they're still working on some things and the whole uploading process thing won't be available today I think. And I'm glad they're working on it because I had problems uploading stuff last week and a few days ago, too and it was just oh so very annoying. :(
Tomorrow, things will be better! :D

I HARE BLOGGER SOMETIMES!

I'm sorry :( That's such a bummer. I did read that they were doing maintenance yesterday, so depending on the time that may be why. Maybe e-mail blogger support and see what's going on?

Suck! I hope it starts working for you. I would offer some help, but chances are I would make matters worse.
