It's nice to know that people notice when something is up! I received a flurry of emails from concerned readers, who noticed that my blog was "blank" when they went to my URL. Sure enough, I had the same problem. I have notified Blogger.com, and hopefully they are fixing it. Meanwhile, I am posting this in the hopes that it will kickstart a new publishing of my blog in order to restore it. And meanwhile, for those who kindly expressed concern for me, rest assured that the problem lies with Blogger.com, not with "the blogger"!
p.s. - I think it helped!
