What’s Up With Blogomania?

:: Weird things are happening, if at all, with Blogomania, the service that hosts my web sites, and Geoff‘s and Tony‘s, among many others. If you’re reading this, then something is working, but not everything is kosher, and I’m worried. I cannot reach the Blogomania site, the Blogmania Helpdesk, my website’s Control Panel, nor my e-mail.

A websearch revealed this post, advising that Christine, the Blogomania girl, has joined forces with Blogmoxie. The girls of Blogmoxie are here, including Christine. The thing is, I haven’t heard boo from Blogomania that this was in the works, and if so, what the implications were for BM customers. Are we being transferred to Blogmoxie? If so, check this out: Blogmoxie has suspended new hosting applications. Say what?

The Blogmania site isn’t working, as of 1631 hrs, MST. This is what you see when you try to reach the site, or Christina’s BigPinkCookie.com – not reassuring at all.

For the time being, i.e., the weekend, I’ve giving Blogomania the benefit of the doubt. I hope Christine resolves this within a day. Blogomania’s reputation, solid until now, doesn’t need a hit like this.

    Hi again Randy!

    I just wanted to let you know that the page that you linked to re: hosting on the BlogMoxie website is an old page. We did previously close applications for awhile with our previous hosting provider. We have since switched and have partnered with Blogomania and to offer hosting.

    🙂 Just thought I’d put that out there! 🙂

    The server Blogomania resides on had a hard drive failure. The site itself is perfectly fine, and once a new drive was put into place and configured, the site was back up and running.

    Yes, Blogomania has partnered to offer hosting to Blogmoxie design clients. This has *no* impact on Blogomania clients. Nothing is happening to them. Status quo, no changes there.

    The “Blogmoxie has suspended new hosting applications” quote should have been removed from the site early in December; they originally partnered with a host that ran out of space so they suspended applications. Once they partnered with Blogomania, applications were taken again.

    Hard drives fail. It’s not normal, and we monitor all systems and do our best to prevent such events. We also keep the Blogomania site separate from *all* other client sites so that – ideally – you can reach ours if yours is down for any reason. Today, unfortunately, it was a matter of ours being down while everyone else was up and running.

    There is no need to worry, everything is back to normal.
