Blogger Help Needed

All of the blogs that I follow and manage on Blogger Dashboard have totally disappeared. Anyone had this happen---or know what I can do to get them back. That is what I use to check when your new posts come in, so that I can comment on your blog. HELP please!

Hi Betsy,
Mine does that from time to time. Sometimes if I refresh the page it will come back, other times it will just reappear later. Last week all the blogs I follow and my followers disappeared for about an hour.
Try again a little later and see what happens.

Blogger had some real issues last week. I think they were hacker related. It may be leftovers from that. Last week the problem was finally repaired by blogger.

Betty said...

That is awful I hope someone can help. I have been away for awhile I have read all the blogs,but I just didn't comment. I just love your little cardnal he is so cute.I think I am back now.

Wendy said...

Awww Betsy, that sucks! Blogger can be so wonderful and yet at times so frustrating.
As already mentioned, sometimes it just happens and then reappears later on. Try clicking on an Older Post and see if they return.

Hope things get better soon. BTW - I love your header. You two look so happy!!

I'm a little confused by your message -here and over at Pump Up Your Blog -with Dorothy Thompson. When you say you use this blog and your dashboard to check for new blogs, are you referring to "blogs you follow?"
I use Google Reader as well as blogs I follow but all those I follow come in on my reader. I've had no problems with my reader nor with the ones I follow either.

bettyl said...

I don't think it's anything to panic about. As the other good bloggers mentioned, these things happen and they usually resolve themselves eventually.

Wendy said...

I found it Betsy. You need to scroll right down to the very bottom of your blog. And your blogroll is there!

I too use Google Reader to keep informed about new posts.I have not had trouble with this gadget.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Jeni, I don't use Google Reader although I could. However, my followers won't come up either place---so neither the Blogger Update lists nor Google Reader are working.

I have found out that several people are having this problem--so it's not just me. Hopefully, they will fix it soon.


Betsy from Tennessee said...

Wendy, Thanks!!! I know I have a listing on my blog itself---but it's outdated. It doesn't update automatically when you add or take people off. Every once in awhile I will update this list--but since I don't use it, I haven't updated it in awhile. It will do for tonight though. Thanks!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hey All, I got a response from Blogger saying that there are several people who have this problem (lucky me). The Blogger people are working on it---and my lists should be back hopefully soon. Yeah-rah!!!

Thanks for your help. I almost panicked.

Karin said...

So glad all is well! I have my list in Places that I visit, but if that disappeared I'd not be able to read all my fav blogs.

Question - will you be watching for the meteor showers tonight and tomorrow night? I think it's going to be too light around here!

A Brit in Tennessee said...

Betsy: happened to mine last week, and now just like magic, appeared again.
Give it a little time ;)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Karin, I don't know if we'll get outside tonight or not.. I think it's too cloudy. I would love to go out on the golf course and watch the stars!!!! Thanks for the reminder.

Dorothy Thompson said...

Jen is referring to me, Betsy. Someone in Pump Up Your Blog group mentioned they had lost all their followers and I mentioned you had said the same thing on your blog. All of my followers are in my dashboard, though. Are yours?

Susie said...

Betsy this has happened to me before too. I usually go into layouts, open up where my list is suppose to be and hit save. For some odd reason this always works.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Dorothy, I use Blogger Dashboard (updater) to check my updated blogs. I don't use Google Reader nor do I use (until tonight) the blogs I have listed on my blog (which is outdated). (Google doesn't automatically update that list---and I don't think to do it very often.)

I have never had any trouble with the Dashboard before today--but they say that 'some' of us have the problem today. My hubby's is fine.

ALL of my blogs are GONE right now. Google says they will come back. GOSH--I hope so.

Thanks for your help.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Susie, My list on my blog is okay... It's the Blogger Dashboard where I manage my followers that is GONE.

I don't use the blog updates on my own blog because that list is outdated. Blogger doesn't automatically update it--and since I don't use it (until tonight), it is not updated with new people I have added, etc.

Thanks for your help though.

Kay said...

Mildred at Nalley Valley is having the same problem. She told me she is trying to follow my new blog (Boomer Songs) but it won't let her sign up and all of her followers are missing.

It happened to me about 2 weeks ago too. Blogger still has so many bugs.


Diane said...

Betsy, great to see that with blogger help it was found. What would we do without each other?

Kirigalpoththa said...

Same issue here.

the list i follow in the Blogger Dashboard is gone :(

But the list in the main page is still there..

Kirigalpoththa said...

Click here

Think lot of people facing the issue.

should be a minor glitch as other functions are working..E.g. My blog list on main page which was created from the same list in the dashboard is still working.

Queen of Dreamsz said...

Hopefully your dashboard is working again...Blogger has added so many new widgets and things lately that I guess they are having hiccups!!

I have several people that can't leave comments at my blog...for the life of me I cannot figure out why not. Other strange things have happened on and off...

I think we would all freak out if Blogger pulled the plug on us! After all....we MUST talk everyday!


Sunny said...

Mine has been gone since yesterday. Like you, that is how I keep track of new blogs. I sure hope they fix it soon. I also noticed that it would not allow me to follow a blog.
Sunny :)

Rita said...

Oh my. I hate when things like that happen to me. I am not tech savvy and never know how to fix them.

JKoenig said...

Hi Betsy,

I discovered the same thing last night. I read your blog about the longest yard sale and this morning all the blogs from the blogs I follow were gone, and my blog icon was missing from their followers pictures.

Maybe blogger is having some problems. I had to go a round about way to even find you this morning, because I can't seem to list you on the side bar of my blog either.

amelia said...

I have had the same problem and they did eventually all come back! Good Luck!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

It's 8 a.m. Central time---and none of my blogs are back yet.... GADS---Hope they fix it soon.

I thought Google would have it fixed since they have been out for about 16+ hours now.

Hugs to all,

Sunny said...

Hi Betsy,
My list is back...yeah! Now to catch up on blogs!
Sunny :)

Mike and Lizette said...

I'm dealing with the same issue. Blogger indicates that it is related to some DNS attacks of late and that they are aware of it.

Kirigalpoththa said...

My list is BACK now :)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Mine is back also. YEAH-RAH... We've been gone all morning so I'm not sure exactly what time it came back...

Thanks SO much just for your SUPPORT. This is the first time I've had any problems with Blogger.


Dorothy said...

Hi Betsy,
Blogger took away my reading list yesterday and when I try to enter it all again, it looks like it is working but then when I go back, it isn't there! I need patience!

I am glad to see everybody else was having this trouble when I was.

I had the same trouble and was so lost.
Glad they're back up.
