FlogYoBlog Friday - The Saturday Edition

Well, well, well, what do we have here? FlogYoBlog Friday on a Saturday? Has the world gone topsy turvy??

Well, actually, it kinda did. The blogging world at least.

If you're not a blogger or have been out of action the past 36 hours you wouldn't know that the entire Blogger blogging platform went in to read only mode - no new posts, no comments.

Bloggers everywhere, longing to spew forth too much information about their private lives were hyperventilating at their sudden muting and took to Twitter to bitch microblog, but it just wasn't the same. The conversation quickly turned to Merkins. I know, I don't understand either, but it was awesome.

There were reports of some Sydney bloggers going to the Domain Speakers' Corner and reading out their posts, so desperate were they for comments on their lives.

So now the system appears to be restored, albeit it with missing posts, missing comments, and old posts being mailed out to email subscribers. It will be a confusing few days on the blogosphere as everyone tries to get back to normal.

For now, grab your latest post (if it exists!) and Flog it!

The linky will stay open until Sunday 5pm AEST to make up for the missed time.

The Rules
(As stolen from Lori, thus making Baby Jesus cry... sorry)
  1. Follow Where's My Glow? 
  2. Bow down at the alter of Mummy Time; Blog-goddess, all round groovy gal and creator of FYBF
  3. Grab the FYBF button and post it on your sidebar or in the post you're linking up
  4. Link in your favourite/best post from the week (don't just put your blog URL)
  5. Follow at least 1 linkyer/blogger (Be nice and spread the comment love)
  6. The list will be open for linkyers on Fridays (and for the foreigners Friday as well)
  7. A new and fresh linky list will open every Friday. And you will have to link up AGAIN. The previous link list does not carry over to the following week
  8. Because I live in Dullsville Perth the list will open around 7am AWST - I'm not getting up at 5am and the last time I scheduled a post it didn't work.

Glowless rocked the Aussie Bloggers Conference thanks to


  1.  Love your work, (so not)Glowless. Cheers!

  2. I nearly had a meltdown! I suddenly had 4 different posts to write.  Of course now that it's back they have all gone... 

  3. Blogger must be supersticious and refuse to work on Fri 13th. Nothing wrong with FlogYoBlogSaturday for a change... 

  4. Hi Glowless. My first FlogYoBlog today. You could imagine my disappointment when I waited ALL day yesterday to post, to no avail. Damn Blogger! Oh well, it's done now.

    Thanks, Anne

  5.  Wahoo, so glad I didnt miss FYBF. Stupid blogger system spoilt my day as well yesterday...

  6. Well, THAT was fun Blogger. Let's not do that again real soon, kays? Glad to see you here today! x

  7. I logged on to Twitter this morning and was thinking WTF... Merkin is trending.

  8. Better late than never, hey? Thanks Glowless!  

  9. Ohmygodohmygodohmygod!!!! I thought it was my pink computer playing funny buggers!!! Or a poltergeist in the system.....thank you Glowless, for getting me out of the dark!!!!! And damn you Blogger, for threatening my marriage.....(just kidding...but it was rather scary, right???)

  10.  So glad to hear everyone's back to normal (sort of)! Happy FYBF (ah, Saturday!) ;)

  11. Ah, so that's what happened! Good thing for the rest of us, you're on the ball!

     OH man, I missed it!! After that bloody outage on Friday I was very confused and then having to post in arrears on Saturday stuffed me completely. And now I up to Sunday and finally getting a handle on Saturday and I've missed my chance to join FYBF!!! Bum, bum, bum.  Will have to do a whole lot of reading instead ....
