Blogger has had good and bad days over the past 8 months, but the past few days were the worst ever. One of my postings was replicated six times; after the sixth occurence Blogger went down completely for about 18 hours. Their status site, status.blogger.com, had no report on any part of the outage.
I wish I were paying for Blogger so they'd be in fear of losing my business. Another disadvantage of a free service!
