Blogger outage?

Yesterday afternoon, I couldn't reach any blogs hosted at I tried different computers and different ISPs, but nothing worked. However, I couldn't find any news about being down.

The outage made me think of how much the blogosphere depends on one host working all the time. All of my blogs are hosted on, and it seems like a good percentage of all other blogs in the world are as well. It was eerie to go to a blog search engine and not being able to reach most of the sites you're looking for. Unlike regular web sites, which are hosted on countless different servers and providers, the blogosphere has a big dependency on Scary.
