This happened about 18 months ago, and there were thousands of blogs that were marked as spam by accident. Send the email as soon as you can, and hopefully it will be fixed quickly.

They have threatened to delete the blog within 20 days unless they review it positively. Until then, I'm unable to post anything new, though it appears comments are still working. I got an automated email from Blogger within 10 seconds of my current post, so I'm wondering what the trigger was. GRRRRR.


That's so irritating! Hopefully a live human will be getting to it soon!

So frustrating :( I read your blog all the time... I wonder where the complaint/problem originated.

There won't have been a complaint - it will be a glitch with the automatic processes.

The other thing Ariadne, is that there is a process in your Dashboard called Import export which creates an electronic file that saves all your content, and all your comments. If you can get to your dashboard, try doing that instead of copying to a word document, because there is also a function that allows you to import as well, so it easier if you do need to reload anything.

It's a good idea to do this process every now and again as a backup of your blog content anyway.

Thanks, Marg! I'm exporting a backup copy now. I can get to the dashboard and wonder how I missed the export option before - although it is kind of hidden in a section I don't visit often. Glad to know it's there, and I'll be doing backups regularly from now on.

Great idea. I'm going to do that as well!

There are some parts of the day which, IMHO, were never meant to be viewed with eyes open. 2-6 am in particular. (where's the napping smiley?)

I keep my laptop on a board on top of a suitcase that I can move on and off my bed and every now and then the mouse falls off the side unto the floor. Well last night I was going to the restroom and I stepped on the mouse and killed it :( I'm hoping to have a new one later today or Monday at the latest. For now I have to learn how to use the built in mouse of my laptop and what fun it is! ;) Sigh! I feel I've lost an appendage cause my hand keeps going to where it knows the mouse should be but isn't!

Update: the IT place is only open to 2 today and I won't be uptown till after 2 to go see a movie, so I'm going to have to wait till Monday for a new mouse, WAH! Guess I won't do a lot of what I usually do until then!

LOL, my hubby thinks I haven't quite grasped the main point of wireless laptops and cordless mice - that you are now free to roam about the house :D And - for the accident prone - to drop the lap top in transit, and to step on wayward mice. My personal favourite discovery to date, was that my cat only regards my cordless mouse as off limits, when it is on the desk I keep dumping her off of. (And oh look! She accidently knocks it onto the floor, and then loses it under the furniture for me!) :D
