Online Book Discussion POSTPONED

As of seven o'clock last night, I was just getting started on Chapter 11, so I was up until past two o'clock this morning finishing To Kill A Mockingbird. Heart full, eyes brimming with tears, I attempted to log into my Blogger account and get our online book discussion rolling.

Alas, Blogger went down yesterday, and I was still unable to access my account this morning; click HERE for Blogger's explanation of what went wrong. Sadly, the post I wrote yesterday, in which I listed my seven Ultimate Favorite Things, is still missing as of this writing; I can only hope that it isn't gone forever. And I am faced with the decision of whether or not to move my blog content to a "safer" site - although I am fairly convinced that there is no real security anywhere on the internet - and deal with the learning curve inherent to that process.

In the meantime, I have backed up my blog. I am embarrassed to admit that I hadn't done that before. Honestly, it never occurred to me that it could simply disappear.

So, while I wait and see whether or not Blogger is able to fully restore my content - and to give a couple of ne'er-do-wells (you know who you are!) the weekend to finish reading, I am hereby postponing our online book discussion of To Kill A Mockingbird until Monday, May 16th. In the meantime, I hope you all have a great weekend!


As you can see, my seven Ultimate Favorite Things post has been restored, although it is showing up as posted today. Regardless, I'll take it!

Blogger frustrated me, too this week. I lost one post completely, and have another that just will not go up ungarbled. I hope next week is better!

So sorry you lost a post, Debbie. That hurts! It sounds like Blogger has the situation under control now. So I hope next week is better, too!

I noted it's absence Friday when I tried to view it. Glad to see it's back up!

Yes, S.M., they were back up within twenty four hours. I will admit to chewing my nails while waiting to see how long it would take them to restore service. But they did it!
