5 days now, and we are unable to upload pictures to blogger. Every time we try, we get the following message

Network Error (tcp_error)
A communication error occurred: ""
The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.
For assistance, contact your network support team.

On the forum there is a short note from a Google Employee saying there is a problem and they are working on it.... well 5 days is a bit long, you'd think they could at least give updates to their frustrated bloggers!

So reluctantly, we are in the process moving across to Wordpress. I much prefer Blogger, but it seems they have outgrown their capacity and the service offerred when there is a problem is becoming more and more dismal.

So please excuse the enforced absence, and bear with us while we set up the new sites, we'll be back asap!

A lot of people are moaning about it. I load the photos into Flickr, and then link on my post using html to the photo. I was having so many hassles loading photos a few monts ago.
I'm also thinking of moving my photoblog too.

No problems on my side yet. Let us know when your new site is up and going.

I haven't encountered any photo problems (so far!) but I know how frustrating it can be when something won't work. Be sure to post your new address so we know where to find you!
