Disaster Strikes - Google's Blogger Bites Me In The Ass

Blogger sucks. Late Saturday night I tried to create a new blog for posting Java articles, and it failed. Twice. The creation process hung twice at 10%. When I went back to my dashboard and tried to delete the bogus blogs, I wound up deleting the good working blog. The only thing that saved me was a browser window open with all my May entries. I cut and pasted the entries to Word, then recreated blogbeebe and cut and pasted them back as new/old entries.

The problem is there are few other blog hosting sites that have the same level of features as Blogger/Blogspot. And an email to support only got me an automated response. I'll stay here and I'll back up. But from this point forward I'm looking for a new home. I know what I did and I did not select the good blog for deletion. There's a flaw in the system. If I hit another disaster like this last one then I'm afraid it's another painful search for another blog home.

Does anybody have any good suggestions?

    I used to use Blogger exclusively... then got hooked on php stuff, and am stydying Java.

    I would suggest getting a host (Yahoo's hosting is rather good and PhP ready) and creating your own blog. Too many glitches elsewhere.
