For some time I've been trying to access my blog but have been unable to from both my phone, and computer. Are they disabled now?? When I click on the "Free Diet Blogs" link nothing happens. I used to blog all the time because it was really helpful to write what I was going through but havent been able to in months! I also need to at least view it because I had things I need to save. Is there a direct link to the blogs? I've been wondering for months but never thought to ask here. :(

I'm sorry you are having trouble with the blogs :( I haven't experienced any problems accessing the blogs and I check them several times a day to remove splogs. It might be possible that you visited them once when they were down and your browser cached the error page. If so, a hard refresh should clear it from your browser. There are different ways to do that, depending on your system. I use Control + F5 on my mac with firefox. I think command/shift/R is another. Visit the page, then do a hard refresh to see if it clears it up.

Also try the url without the www as http://3fatchicks.com/diet-blogs/ and see if that works for you.

How do I add new entries to my blog? Do I use the comments section?

Go to your Site Admin, click the Write tab, and create a new Post.

I hope that helps :)

I've not heard of any errors like this before. Do you mind if I try a test post to your account? I see you created two blogs, which one are you trying to post to?

I was able to create a test post and didn't receive any errors. Can you let me know which way you were able to successfully reach the site again? www.3fatchicks.com/diet-blogs/ or without the www ?

I deleted your extra blog for you, as you requested.

You were able to get in to create the blog, though, so I don't understand why you are getting errors. The DNS servers are up and running. I don't have enough information from you to troubleshoot it further. The best thing I can suggest is that you clear your cache and try again, and hopefully that will take care of it :)

Can you check mine for me? Its now over 9 months since I can post. Tonight the page actually loaded and lets me sign in. However once I write my blog entry and press "publish" it takes forever and just keeps loading, then goes to an error screen. I will try to clear out all my cache and see if that helps. I dont think its that since Im having the problem on both my phone and computer. Ive even tried using AOL, Internet Explorer, and Chrome. Its so frustrating because I really need this blog to work!

Uh oh :( I tried to make a test post and experienced the same thing. This happened to a handful of members a long time ago, after a server outage corrupted some of the blogs. Given the date of your last post, I think yours was affected as well :(

Would you like to start a new blog? We can delete the old blog and let you sign up again. You can go to http://www.3fatchicks.com/diet-blogs/wp-blogsignup.php and create a new blog that is attached to your existing blog user account (make sure you are logged in). However, if that one doesn't post for you then we would need to delete your blog user as well, and let you start completely from scratch.

I'm sorry for the trouble!
