WASHINGTON — Google's Blogger was back up Friday after suffering an outage that knocked the blogging platform used by millions offline for over 20 hours.
"We're very sorry that you?ve been unable to publish to Blogger for the past 20.5 hours," Blogger manager Eddie Kessler said in a post on the Blogger Buzz blog. "We use Blogger for our own blogs, so we've also felt your pain."
"We're nearly back to normal -- you can publish again, and in the coming hours posts and comments that were temporarily removed should be restored," Kessler said.
The outage was due to data corruption during scheduled maintenance work Wednesday night, he said.
"We try hard to ensure Blogger is always available for you to share your thoughts and opinions with the world, and we'll do our best to prevent this from happening again," Kessler said.
Blogger is one of the world's most popular blogging platforms and has millions of active blogs.
