Working behind the scenes

As most of you know, Hip2Save's blog was removed by Blogger. Their scanning software determined that it was spam (which it isn't) and removed it without notice to her. They have no phone support and 4 days later, she still hasn't gotten her blog back. You can visit her blog at for now. She isn't posting deals though.

It has me very concerned and I am working on moving the blog from Blogger to my own virtual server. It's taking some time, but at this moment it is my top priority. I have to get this blog moved before the same potential thing happens to us.

So make sure you have me saving in your favorites as It will point to the new website once it is up and running (hopefully by tonight! Things are coming along great!)

Until then, my friend Amy at Who Said Nothing In Life Is Free? has a lot of great deals going on!

Thank you for your patience and understanding the importance of getting this done.

could you try to make it so that if I click on a link to another one of your pages it DOES NOT open a new page... i hate that...

it is nice when you have links to other sites but not when i am playing around on your page

I feel terrible for hip2save. I hope her blog gets up & running soon. I miss her

I hope you share what steps you are taking in your move. I noticed a post the other day that you were staying on Blogger so, does that just mean you're getting a host or moving to Wordpress? Please do tell for the rest of us bloggers on Blogger who might consider taking the same steps as you! ;)

I wouldn't worry so much about it Jen. Blogger/Blogspot is now aware of the issue and is fixing it and preventing it from future issues. I think people are over-reacting a bit. Just be sure your site is backed up, other than that, don't go nuts over this.

I definitely feel just awful for Colin at hip2save. I hope other bloggers are helping her out and not just thinking about saving their own butts. She has been a HUGE influence to the blog community so i really hope other bloggers are doing what they can to help HER too. I keep hearing everyone worrying and going crazy about saving there own blog and not caring about her. she needs support too. :0(

I have lost faith in Blogger. Since finding out about Collin's blog, I have also found out that it happened to 2 other top bloggers (Money Saving Mom had it happen at some point to her, she moved to Type Pad and Ginger at Attention Target Shoppers had her blog locked on Black Friday and its still not unlocked!). It also happened to Money Saving Madness and Coupon Katarina. If Blogger was rectifying the issue, her blog would be up by now. I don't expect it to be back anytime soon.

This has apparently been happening for quite a while and I have lost all faith in Blogger. I am getting my blog moved while I have the opportunity.

There is not much more that I personally can do to help Collin other than post so her readers that also read my blog know she can be reached at If there was something else I could do, I would do it.
