Until tonight’s mini-outage of the Blogger beta at 8PM PST, the following problems will be seen on the beta:
  • Mail-to-Blogger and Blogger Mobile postings will not publish. They will publish eventually, however, after 8PM.
  • FTP blogs will publish, but the spinny status will not reflect this in the interface. It will instead spin forever.
We apologize for these issues. Everything will be as normal after 8PM.

Update, 8:45PM: The outage completed a little while ago and was mostly successful, with downtime of 5 minutes for the beta and its Blog*Spot. Some blogs were returning 502 error pages for about 15 minutes after the rest of the service returned. All FTP, email, and mobile publishing is now back to normal.
