UPDATE: The problem was related to the Followers gadget. I removed the gadget and now the blog is loading fine in Internet Explorer. Thanks to Donald Douglas of American Power who alerted me to the problem.
I will resume blogging later today.
BLOGSPOT IS WORKING ON A FIX.
A growing number of people are reporting that Internet Explorer crashes when attempting to log on to blogs from blogspot.com.
Try using Google's new browser -- it's great. It's called "Google Chrome." You can download it for free at this link.
POSTING WILL BE LIGHT UNTIL BLOGSPOT FIXES THIS PROBLEM!
Google Chrome will require you to install a free add-in, but it's quick. Google Chrome will not crash when logging onto this blog!
I do hope, however, that Google (who owns blogspot.com) is not causing this so people will switch!
More as it develops...
