Message that appeared on Blogger for a long time yesterday morning:
I had a couple people write to me yesterday to ask if I were okay, since all they were seeing was a post from March 11, and nothing more recent.
Unfortunately, Blogger, the platform on which this blog appears, had a major problem of some sort — perhaps related to the bad luck that supposedly occurs on Friday the 13th? Actually, Blogger has been behaving strangely a lot during the past week. I hope it’s not failing, and that I would have to migrate to another blogging platform. I really don’t want to have to do that.
Anyway, by early afternoon yesterday, Blogger had resumed normal operations. I found the posts that I had written and were scheduled for Thursday (Law Ride Gallery) and Friday (Chaps Weather). I had to publish them again, but at least I didn’t have to write them all over again.
This is one of the perils of using a free system. One cannot expect 100% reliability all the time.
Life is short: keep blogging!
