It now appears, as of approximately 11:00 a.m. ET, that the problems noted below have been fixed and Google/Blogspot-based blogs are back up and running.
It appears Google is having trouble with its Blogspot server(s) this morning. As recently as 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time, a “Server Error” message appeared on randomly checked Blogspot sites. Accordingly, if you’re attempting to visit blogs that rely on Google — like mine and Shaun Mullen’s — or follow links to such blogs from posts here, please be patient. No word yet on estimated time of repair, but we’ll certainly update this post as soon as we note a restoration in service.
