Blogger, Google’s blogging platform that it purchased in 2004, was down, but now it’s back. It’s the second time this year Blogger users, including this blogger, experienced wide-spread outages, and while Google has not, as of this writing, issued a statement, one Google Engineer named Jeremy did point the way for Blogger users to recover account access:

Whatever the “change” was, it produced the most prolonged Blogger outage in recent memory. The night-long problem threatened to make Tumblr’s recent outage problems not look so bad.

Fortunately, this blogger established a self-hosted WordPress version of Zennie62 called, which allowed for the production of blogs, even as Blogger was down. Eventually, will become the blog of use around here.
