Google is busy updating Blogger, its easy to use blogging platform. The Blogger home page is down, and all blogs powered by Blogger are now in read-only mode. Google notified users about this upcoming maintenance upgrade earlier and mentioned that “Blogger will go into read-only mode Wednesday (5/11) 10:00PM PST for about an hour for maintenance”.
Google said in a blog post –
We are very sorry that users are unable to publish to Blogger right now. We have rolled back the maintenance release from last night and as a result, posts and comments from all users made after 7:37 am PDT on May 11, 2011 have been removed. Again, we apologize that this happened and our engineers are working hard to return Blogger to normal and restore your posts and comments. We will post a report once this work is complete.
A quick reminder: in order to get Blogger back to normal, we’ve reverted back to a stable version. All posts since 7:37am PDT on Thursday May 11 have been removed. We’ve backed up those posts and we expect everything to be back to normal soon.
Update – It is now back up.
