Blogger Service Blames Data Corruption for Outage Affecting Users Across America

Blogger on Friday blamed data corruption for a bug that took down the service for more than 20 hours.

Service has since been restored, and users should be able to publish once again. Blogger is still in the process of restoring some posts that were temporarily removed due to the glitch.

“Here’s what happened: during scheduled maintenance work Wednesday night, we experienced some data corruption that impacted Blogger’s behavior,” Eddie Kessler, tech lead and manager of Blogger, wrote in a blog post. “Since then, bloggers and readers may have experienced a variety of anomalies including intermittent outages, disappearing posts, and arriving at unintended blogs or error pages.”
