Blogger has been having serious problems lately. Quite often lately I’ll try several Blogger blogs and get “internal server error 500” on all of them.
AmericaBlog says Blogger, which is erratic on a good day, probably won’t be will be able to handle the upcoming crush of election-related blogging.
Blogger is owned by Google. But they’ve orphaned it from Day One. For free stable hosting for blogging, I suggest WordPress.com, which is where my tech blog is. It’s solid, virtually always up, plus WordPress has way more features than Blogger.
