GARRRRR BLOGGER....LET GO MY HEAD!

......BLOGGER HAS ME IN A HEADLOCK AND WON'T LET GO!!!


I had a post done and ready to go this morning. I hit publish.....and all the words are GINORMOUS ...if you were blind.....YOU COULD STILL SEE THEM!!!!
Maybe when I get home from work tonight I'll have the energy to wrestle.


Dear Blogger:


"UNCLE"

Sincerely yours,

Blogger has been crazy all week. My feeds are messed up, my follower thing is all goofy, if it starts messing with my font it better look out, lol!

Melissa said...

Blogger has been a piece of crap all week! Seriously, I was beginning to doubt my skills until I found out everyone else was having problems too.

Let's hope it gets working better!
And Happy Friday!

Quirkyloon said...

Yes, I too, feel your blogger pain. It has been weird all week.

I shall patiently await for your next funny....cuz I know it's coming....and I know it will be goooood! It always is!

KC Mom said...

Yah..I jacked up my blog messing around with things and trying to fix them so now it looks like I follow no one, even though it still shows on my dashboard that I do. It's such a pain. I've tried fixing it and it's not working. It tires me out too.

Bo said...

Hi Nikki...what is up with Blogger...everything is going haywire...but I don't think I'd mind ginormous print...no glasses needed! ;-) Bo

Laura said...

I've been having problems with the word verification showing up on some blogs. The box is there, but no letters! Have a good weekend!

J'Ollie Primitives said...

I'm starting to wonder if the geek that redecorated eBay was hired to fix up Google.

The geeks need to quit messing with our heads.

Smilingsal said...

Blogger and I have been wrestling too. Good luck! It seems we're losing.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Ohhhhh I feel your pain! Google's been giving me a headache all week...trying to play catch up on blog-hopping and commenting is difficult at best without getting an error message every time I turn around! Hopefully they'll get it all straightened out SOON!

And like Chris said - you're worth the wait! ;)

onlymehere said...

I think blogger heard your "uncle" bz this post looks fine. I've been having tons of trouble with it not updating and then all of the sudden WHAM tons of posts by people only some of them are two days old!! Crazy blogger.

Cynthia said...

I always end up with weird paragraph spacing thanks to blogger.

Hope you get it worked out. I'm starting to need a little Crumpet fix- and no, I'm still not willing to get my own but dang he's cute!

Southern Lady said...

Bless your heart, Nikki. Don't give up ... I don't know what we'd do without you, my friend.

Last week, I spent about an hour and a half writing a really long post, with lots of pictures, and got ready to publish it, and POOF! ... it was gone and was no where to be found! I literally cried ... lol ... and after much whining and ranting, I rewrote it, but it wasn't as good as the first one ... lol.

Hope you're back up and running again soon.

Mammatalk said...

Oh, no! So sorry to hear. Whose next?

Rachel said...

The eyeball on that cow!!! So funny!!! I've had that happen to me. Somehow the html mode got messed up so I usually have to go in and take out the "larger" codes that made the words get big. I'm not technical so I can't explain it well! Does that make sense, haha!

Beverly said...

Grrr!!!! I hope everything is better very soon.

Carolynn said...

Wow...I don't know what worm hole I've managed to wiggle through, but I haven't experienced any problems. (furiously knocking on wood).

I can't tell who's winning the battle - the cow or the cowboy, so maybe there's hope.

Bloggers unite! We shall overcome!

Mrs. B. Silly said...

It's an insidious plot to drive us all nuts (or nuttier than we already are in some cases...Nikki!)

Loving Annie said...

Blogger can be so frustrating sometimes !

The Blue Ridge Gal said...

I must be the odd man out since I am not having any problems with Blogger this week... guess the bloggy gods must love me more than they love you... LOL

Blogger has really been messing w/ all of us this week. Don't speak too soon Blue Ridge Gal.

Our really empty nest said...

Computers are great except when they are not! Hope your day improved from here! Sue

Ginger said...

At first I thought it was just me...until I started reading everyone's blogs. I hope they get this fixed soon....

Grand Pooba said...

Why is blogger being such a B lately?

Lisa Loo said...

Well--its good I didn't leave a paranoid message on your blog yesterday asking if you had stopped following me on purpose--isn't it?! And I say publish it--its lovely when I don't have to sit 2 inches from my screen to read.

And FYI--that pic--thats what I have to do every night just to get some meat for dinner.

Pedaling said...

i finally fixed my issues with my blog- evidently i had posted something that was broken and though warned i published it anyway, making things lock up- finally figured out that was the problem and went back and took off the broken published post.

Darlene said...

I have heard of a lot of people having problems this week. MY problem is that my computer at home is dead...won't do a THING! So I just have to play on the computer at my little part time job and on my hubby's laptop when he is at home....GRRRRR

imjacobsmom said...

I'm "having issues", too. I didn't want to be left out....I'll be back later. ~ Robyn

Lee of MWOB said...

Nikki - I feel your pain. I want to kill Blogger - whoever Blogger is. These ginormous words have haunted me too!!!

If it happens again, just post it - we'll still read it!

:-)

Firefly@www.firefly-shop.org said...

You're not alone :) blogger is doing it a lot lately!

Eudea-Mamia said...

Seriously! This follower BS has got me irked beyond belief. And linking to Friends - seriously? Like we NEED another thing to keep up with.

Stop Blogger before my braid explodes!! (see, I meant to type brain. It's only a matter of time.)

ann said...

Oh dear,are we experiencing the same things that we did on Rate My Slace?I've had problems all wk trying to get into blogs...ann

Michelle said...

Blogger is being strange lately. Have you seen what they did to the followers feature??

Swirl Girl said...

sorry babe - that picture of that poor cow...the look in it's eye - makes me want to go vegan.

xinex said...

I'll be patient. Your blog is worth waiting for, Nikki!...Christine

~♥~ Monica S said...

Things have happened all over the internet I think!! Wonder what's going on!?
Good luck! Have a good weekend!

Monica

thedomesticfringe said...

So sorry. Blogger makes me crazy and all I do is leave comments on it. At least that's what I try to do.

Enjoy the weekend!

Sincerely Yours said...

GEE NIKKI I DIDN'T NOTICE ANYTHING WRONG WITH YOUR WORDS!!!! I like large print so I don't have to wear my glasses!!!lol Since I've not been on I haven't yet experienced (never mind I'm not going to say it! might jinks me!)I miss all of you and especially my daily laugh so I'm gonna go check out what you've been up to!!! Have a great weekend dear - Sincerely, Jeannette

salmagundi said...

If it is any consolation you are not alone. Sic the dogs onto Blogger - maybe that will help!! Sally

Beth at Aunties said...

I swear Blogger is really messing with our minds!!!
I too have experienced the same problems and more:)
Do all your posts keep dissappearing? I shut down my word verification, because that was a night mare!

I hope your day was better when you got to work. Your expereince on Jan's blog was awesome!:)

Pineapple Hill said...

I've been having trouble too. I can't paste and copy in the compose mode. annoying!

Not The Rockefellers said...

It's been very slow and on some blogs I can't leave comments.

It would have been funny to see what your blog would have looked like with those big words.

And it would have been funnier still to read the comments.

Peace -Rene

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

I'm just glad to read that others are having trouble with Blogger. I thought it was just me, and figured it was something I was doing wrong! I think you eliminated the "word verification" on some blogs, so I have confidence in you! You go get em, Nikki! laurie

Chrissy said...

YOur humor is delightful!!!!Hope all is well, take care.Chrissy

Sandy Toes said...

Blogger has had some issues lately..my followers list has been found in the craziest places!

Braja said...

You are a shining light in my bloggy world...don't leave me oh mother of Crumpet...:)

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

I very rarely use the compose mode, 'cause I've noticed it messes with your settings.

Justine :o )

Jannie Funster said...

I'm not sure why Blogger gets a bee in its bonnet at tiems. I suppose 'cause Google thinks it's GOD?

squawmama said...

Well I hope all your bloggin problems are solved really soon... You know I love your post and can't wait to see it everyday... Chris said she was having problems with the followers too... But I haven't had any... I did notice that they changed followers now so you can log in and talk to someone like IM... It is all weird... Love Ya

HUGS,
Donna

Shelia said...

So sorry, Nikkiness! But I'll wait - I know it'll be good!

Shelia ;0

Sue said...

I'll join in with the group and agree that Blogger has acted up all week...it has a mind of it's own....

devri said...

ditto to all.

lvroftiques said...

Oh Lordy have I had those days!! It pretty much takes me a whole day to do a blog post, and on two seperate occassions my computer just turned OFF!! I'm talking 4 hrs into a post...and mind numbing research to see who already received what bloggy award! (serious stuff!) Yeah my computer is posesed by a nasty spirit!! I still haven't recovered from the experience......And I doubt I ever will......*hiccup* Vanna

The Things We Carried said...

Blogger has had us all at one time or another!

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

This post JUST showed up for me. Okay, who turned out the lights?

wendy said...

The look on that cows face is funny - I am such a farm girl ------makes me homesick for my families ranch in southern Alberta, Canada. I WANNA GO HOME. wrestle a cow.

Marrdy said...

Maybe Blogger forgot to take it's Paxil!

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Oh can I identify! Lately when trying to leave comments, the page is blank. The worst yet was when I went into my blog and it was BLANK!!!! I went screaming to my hubby....barely uttering the words...my poooo,my poooosts are gone. It has vanished into bloggers abyss. He knows how hard it is for me to chicken peck my posts out and yet he hardly flinched. As I was placing a call
to Chris Angel for help....all my posts magically reappeared.

Sweet Wishes,
Sara

jeanne said...

Hi Nikki, I have typepad and I'm glad. It's not perfect but we really have very few problems. I don't like paying for it but such is life. Beverly led me down the path of typepad. She said blogger has a history of problems. Sic em Ozzie and Crumpet.

Hugs...Jeanne

bettyl said...

I find that if you save it as a draft in that condition, it usually is ok when you open it again. Hope that helps!

tiburon said...

I have tried wrestling Blogger before. I lose every time.

Tink said...

It's a good thing I haven't been blogging all week or my nerves really would be frazzled after my job notice. Ouch! I can't deal with any more crap ;)

Lizzie said...

yeah... why all the blogger trouble recently? this happened over at my blog too. weird, go a head and set the dogs on them, i don't mind :)
