Google's Blogger taken offline

Widespread outage hits Google blog services

Google's Blogger blog publishing and Blogspot blog hosting services went offline today. Among the organisations affected by this apparently widespread outage was Google itself, which hosts its official company blogs on Blogspot.

Blogger publishers have posted a rising volume of complaints on the official Blogger discussion forum since Monday, reporting problems editing, publishing and accessing blogs.

However, things apparently took a turn for the worst today, when Blogger and Blogspot apparently went totally offline.

Checks on Blogger.com and a variety of Blogspot-hosted blogs in different parts of Europe and the US and Europe returned server error messages, confirming reports from users in the Blogger discussion forum.

However, both Blogger and Blogspot now appear to be back online. The outage apparently lasted over one hour.
