I typed in my blog address this morning and this page came up saying my blog had been removed. WHAT!??! I have no idea why. Is anyone else having strange experiences with Google Blogger or have they just singled out my blog for some reason. I have no idea why they would have deleted it.

Update: I went to it again and it came up, but then I tried again and it didn't. Something weird is going on. I am just about done with Google Blogger. Can anybody tell me anything about Wordpress?

Did you use the edit feature and make it private to just you? There are times I will pull my general blog down to play around with features and make it just private to me.

Yes, I am getting the same message. I looked at your blog last night (this would be yesterday morning your time) and it was all OK. I seem to remember Carolyn from Handmade by Carolyn having the same thing a little while ago. It turned out there had been some inappropriate activity on the site and it had been shut down as a safeguard. I know she got it up and running again after some identity confirmation procedures were followed. You might check her blog and do a search to see what she did to set things right again. If I am remembering correctly it was just a safety precaution to prevent inappropriate parties mis-using her blog.

Thank you so much. I did the verification process and now it is back up. However, this just makes me so mad with Google Blogger. I wish they had emailed me and let me know without me just logging on and finding it deleted. I guess shouldn't be mad. At least they are looking out for my blog.

If it's a free blog, then you get what you pay for. I used to use a free one and figured if they were giving me the server space, I'd be obligated to put up with some inconveniences.

They were most likely doing server maintenance, database maintenance, or software updates.

ETA:
And this occurs whether your blog is free or paid for. Updates, upgrades, and maintenance are par for the course and will ALWAYS happen.
