Okay, so it's now been a little over 11 hours since I initiated the
switch over to the new Blogger. Admittedly, I didn't think that it was
going to be a couple minutes to transfer over my more than 2,000 posts,
but never did I think that I was going to be out of commission for,
well, 11 hours (and counting). Yes, I'm still being "moved."
If you go back into this thread, you'll see that Blogger employees do
admit that it may take longer in some cases, but I have to laugh when
that "may take longer" means hours, and lots of them at that. This lack

that really doesn't surprise me. Wouldn't it have been nice for Blogger
to tell us that there was the possibility that things would take hours
and hours for some of the larger blogs to prepare us for the extended
down time? It's such a simple thing, but its something that Blogger,
for some reason, has always struggled with in my years of using them.

communication mixed with better customer service. I realize that we're
talking millions of blogs here, but I also realize we're talking about
Google. With Google shares trading at $450+, you might think they could
afford to increase Blogger's staffing just a tad. That would be a huge
And, by the way, Blogger, my blog is at

to take a peek and see how things are going.
