I had been working on this for other purposes but have now added a sub-forum for bloggers to stay in touch during these hectic times with Blogger / Google, etc.
Scroll down to Blog Announcements.
Remember to back up your blog to your hard drive and if something happens drop in to the forum here:
The Eternal Keep Meeting Place
This is the same link listed at the top of Eternal Keep.
If you have any problems posting let me know. I too may be looking into moving services to Tumblr or somewhere else. I have not experienced any other problems with the service but I am hearing and seeing a lot of folks who are.
Stay in touch! :)
