I’m back! Although I am concerned about the fact that every publish is now accompanied by a laundry list of publishing errors – despite that the blog seems to be OK.
The problem – unknown. I had narrowed it down to an issue with ftp to an external host and today I just reset the ftp process within blogger from the beginning – entering as if new some incorrect details and then re-entering exactly the same details as they had been. Now it worked – although still kicking out exactly the same errors as before – the difference being that the actual blog seems to be correct – although it will take some time to be sure.
I may well yet be switching to WordPress!
More importantly – I can now do the Paper Chef roundup and judging and catch up on about a month of backlog!
