Ok, I am not the last standing Laredo blog, but it seems like it!
Critters and Crayons is still up but Tricia is on the road so there are no new blog posts. Randomology and Raquel Elekes personal blog are still up but Michel & Raquel do not post every day. Not to forget, Thrifty Diners, who still have me drooling over their Nutella recipe but they don’t cook online every day.
As most of you regular Laredo blog perusers know – all of the blogs run by Blogger are down for the count (see, I learned something from the Laredo Wrestling Alliance-ha!). The news has also been picked up by larger media, check out what The Huffington Post says:
[UPDATE] On Friday, Blogger Status posted an update about the ongoing problem.
“To get Blogger back to normal, all posts since 7:37am PDT on Weds, 5/11 have been temporarily removed,” the post read.
Blogger says that service will return “soon,” though no timeline was mentioned.
[PREVIOUSLY] Blogger, Google’s online publishing platform, has been experiencing a service disruption since Thursday afternoon.
Blogger Status informed users of maintenance issues at 3:30 p.m. ET and wrote that the site would be in read-only mode until the problems were resolved. (The post was later removed.)
As of 9 p.m. ET, blogs were still inaccessible for users. According to DownRightNow, the outage had been uninterrupted for several hours. DownForEveryoneOrJustMe also confirmed the downtime.
Of course… if the guys have an itch to post, they can always guest post on this blog but somehow I think this is an unexpected welcome rest for a few of them. I won’t mention that Bordertown Blues has a mirror site run on wordpress so technically… he can post, if he wanted, but only if he goes back to posting Old Skool Friday pictures!
In the meantime, enjoy reading all their older posts until Google-based Blogger fixes its issues.
