Google's Blogger Down For Over 24 Hours! (updated)
Google's Blogger Down For Over 24 Hours!
Blogger ... Google's web log hosting portal, has been down for a full 24 hours at the time of this posting.
This seems like a modern era record for this usually very reliable communications service and personal publishing arm of the giant search powerhouse, Google.
With all of the push Google has been putting in on Chrome, one has to ask - Is Blogger now becoming just an ugly stepchild to the array of focused services that Google has to offer? What - isn't Blogger sexy enough for Google to keep outages down to a minimum?
If this is the case, Google's shine is losing its luster.
This excerpted from Blogger's Status Link:
