TO MY FOLLOWERS:
Many of you have mentioned difficulty getting into my site. It seems many but not all users of blogspot.com are have the same problem, getting the message, "operation aborted." See
The last two days I have not been able to use my own blog with any consistency, getting the same message.
According to above link and Blogger help, it seems to be their own widget FOLLOWERS. Much to my regret I have deleted the widget for the time being and hope it helps. If Blogger gets it fixed I'll put it back up.
I will be traveling for the next few days so won't be posting. I may have to switch to Wordpress if it does not clear up.
Here is a quote from Blogger "known problems":
Some users are seeing an 'Operation Aborted' error message when trying to load their blogs from Internet Explorer. We're looking into this and will update this message when we have a fix.We apologize for the inconvenience.
Update (May 26): We are still working on resolving this bug. This only affects viewers using IE to view the blog; for right now, blog owners can either move the Followers gadget lower in their sidebar, or remove it altogether. Either action will eliminate the pop-up dialog box in IE.We will update this post when a fix has been made. — latest update on Thursday, May 21, 2009
