I've had some problems with the blog - many of you have also told me that you were not able to load the pages or can't post comments.
I kept getting an 'Operation Aborted' error the last few days. Checked on that and found out that it was a blogger bug with IE browsers. This was apparently happening because of the followers widget. I removed all my widgets and it seems to work fine for me.
Please let me know if you all still have trouble viewing the page or leaving comments.
Update - If you are still having trouble with the page, it could be your IE. In case you have an alternate browser like Chrome or Firefox, this works fine there. This is a known issue in Blogger and they are working on resolving it. Once this is fixed, I'll add the follower widget back here. Thanks!
