I find it very curious that Blogger has been running painfully slowly the day after the Official Google Blog has a post urging folks to lobby Congress to Support Net Neutrality.
Is this an untimely coincidence, or shades of things to come? Are the big phone and cable companies putting the squeeze on Google for speaking up on the “wrong” side of the issue?
Here is what the Blogger Status Blog says, “For many users, Blogger will have been extremely slow or down for most of the morning. We continue to work on fixes for this problem and hope to have it resolved as quickly as possible.”
Of course I’m also told by some who are more exprienced than I am that Blogger is notorious for having outages, so maybe I’m just being cynical.
But I’ve never had a big problem with them in the 6+ moths I’ve been with the service. And I’m not one to complain about a free service that has as much to offer and is as easy for a beginner to use as Blogger has been for me! As far as my (limited perhaps) experience goes, Blogger is a great platform that I’d recommend for anyone starting out. It is an exceptional low cost way to try blogging out and see if it is a good fit.
Just the same, perhaps it is now officially time to move CREEations to a more reliable and robust (and yes, more expensive) host.
