Blogger has its own Blogger status blog. It can be found at http://status.blogger.com/. For anyone wondering what the heck has been going on with Blogger lately, here are the latest posts from that blog:
Thursday, June 08, 2006For 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.
Update (4:45p): We are planning another infrastructure overhaul to address the significant problems we've been having in the past several days.
Update (6:59p): We've made another change that has improved performance, but we are also planning to make additional changes this evening.

Wednesday, June 07, 2006This morning, a hardware problem we had been struggling with over the past several days suddenly worsened. As a result, and to stave off future downtime, we have had to take Blogger down for an extended period of time as we address the problem. We will continue to update this blog and the homepage with more information.
Update: We've brought up new hardware which has allowed us to restore the site. We try hard to avoid downtimes of this length and apologize for the inconvenience.

Monday, June 05, 2006Photo uploading will be disabled for 30 minutes this evening starting at 10pm (Pacific Time).
Update: This is taking longer than expected. Hopefully we will be done by 11:45pm (Pacific Time). We will update as we learn more.
Update: We are now finished. Thank you for your patience.
Posted by Jason at 15:46 PDTWe are now recovering from an unscheduled downtime, related to the problem from last week.
There is still some residual slowness as a result of emergency maintenance we are performing on the system.
