Cash is Good!

I have taken a part-time job, and it's definitely affecting my blogging time. I'll continue to post here as I am able.

Template Problems- Please Be Patient

Please be patient. A number of us on blogspot are having trouble with some sort of hacking that causes our blogs to not load. I reverted to an earlier template that seemed to work.

For most people the problem was the code for the PayingPost widget. I don't know what was causing my trouble. I had to take the widgets out of my HTML code and try the 3-column style one at a time as I put them back in. Now it seems to be fine.

For the status of this problem, see the Google Forum

Grrr, trust Blogger to play up while I haven't got net access at home :-(

John- Yours are ok. About 9 people have now reported the same problem, and Google has finally admitted that it may be their problem. I went to all four of your blogs that I know about and they are all fine.

Hi,

I didn't have any problems with when I just loaded your page. Thank your the heads up on this problem and for the visit to my blog. I actually had no idea the PayPerPost script had be hijacked when I wrote my article on my blog.

Mar- Ah... you were timely by accident! Well, there were a lot of really unhappy people on Wednesday!

Hi Sharkbytes. One of my blogs suddenly started playing up today and would not load properly. Then I remembered reading your post. So I removed the Paying Post code and it is working fine now!! Thank you so much for sharing, otherwise I would still be banging my head against the screen in frustration!

Hi Mark- You are welcome... it was just the frustration of trying to fix my own. However, one of my personal blogs that I don't use often has gone goofy, and there are NO links to any monitization sources on that. So the problem hasn't completely gone away.
