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.
We understand there are reports of users in China currently blocked from accessing Blogger and Blogspot URLs. We are looking into the matter and are working to ensure that the service is restored as soon as possible.

Failed FTP Logins 1855294

Some users are reporting failed logins when publishing via FTP. We are investigating.

Update: After considerable debugging, we believe this is isolated to no more than a few dozen accounts. We have discovered several web hosts who appear to be throttling login attempts from unknown IP addresses; please verify with your web host that Blogger's IP addresses are whitelisted. If you continue to see problems, please report them in the Help Forum and we will research the issue further.
