Rant, rave, grumble...

OK, I'm ready to tear my hair out.  What little I have left.

 For the quite a few years I've been blogging, I've had a Reading List of blogs I follow.  It's not even a very long list.  Usually less than two dozen, but I do like to read the new posts from my friends every day.  All I had to do was click on the little orange B in the upper left corner of my tool bar and my Reading List would appear with about a half dozen of the most recent blog entries for me to read.
Easy peasy, right???

Not any more!  My Reading List went kaputsky!!!  Only the most recent ONE blog is now appearing with a little view more notation underneath that does nothing when I click on it.


It's making me crazy enough to do this!

So I'm frantically going through and trying to subscribe to as many as I can through email or Bloglovin which I really didn't want to do and it's not available for everyone anyhow.  Aaaarg!

Is anyone else having this problem?  Or if not, do you have a better way of getting all of your blog posts from your favorite blogs all in one happy place consistently every day.

I want blogging to be a happy thing!

I know several other people have had problems of a different type, like losing all their pictures or having a lot of their older posts disappear.  There isn't really any good troubleshooting info to be had, unfortunately.

So if I haven't commented in the past few days, I missed reading your post because my Reading List is dysfunctional and I'm not sure what to do about it.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


  1. Me too!! The exact same thing is happening, and it just so happened that you are the one that appeared. Yesteday this happened too, I kept trying to refresh, and eventually the list came back up. So far today I can't get it to reappear. Grrrrrr

  2. Another thing that has been happening, when I leave a comment, it shows on the blog, but the mail daemon thing returns the e-mail to me as undeliverable.

  3. Hi Pat, I've been having problems too today and I know of one other blog who had the same problem. For me I have been getting only tone post at a time and the same thing when I click on view more, nothing happens. I have Bloglovin and they usually send me a list of my followers who have posted by email.

    I check on Google and it said that their server was down. It came back on late this afternoon only to disappear again.

    The way I've been checking my followers today was by clicking on one blog at a time and and it took a long time and I never made it through the list. I was planning of deleting a bunch of inactive blogs to shorten my list.

    I hope it will fix itself soon. Please don't pull your hair out, it's very painful and this is already painful enough.
    Big HUG,

  4. That should be "only one post at a time" not tone, lol...

  5. Thank you, friends!
    I'm hoping since this seems to be happening to more of you that it
    is only a temporary technical problem and that it will soon be fixed.
    I really need to keep my hair.

  6. I had this happen a while ago ~ I was in the settings part trying to do something ~ whatever I did got rid of my blog list and the layout of my blog was just weird. Finally when I tried to correct it, it miraculously came back ~ don't know what I did either time. Makes me crazy!!! Hang in there - it might pop back up!

  7. Hi Pat
    I'm with Bloglovin and they send me a daily list into my email, that works.
    Love the wire over the windows, we could do with something like that, then I could open the windows wide.

    1. Briony, I changed my blog reading list to Bloglovin last evening so I wouldn't miss anything. Ha-ha!
      We had to put the wire mesh on the windows last year because Reggie started tearing the screens and jumping out just for fun. These windows are on the second storey and we didn't want him to get hurt. On some of the windows we use the old fashioned slider screens and they seem to deter him too.
      Never a dull moment with cats!

  8. I am having the same issues. I hope it gets fixed soon.

  9. Hi Pat! I'm going to guess that this is a temporary blogger issue that they will fix soon... in the meantime, a temporary workaround is to do what you did to get to your reading list.... and on that page look all the way over to the right for the (edit list) icon. Looks like a gear. Click on that and then your full list of blogs you follow will show there and then you can click on each individually to read. Hope this helps until blogger fixes what they need to.


Thanks for visiting!
