[FAQ] I Can't See My Blog. What Should I Do?

Try a simple, 10 minute connectivity test sequence.

Here are links to 8 replicas of the same article. Click on each link, one after the other, and observe which links lead to content - and not to an error display.  Please be specific - which ones can you, and which can't you, read?  Please do all 8 tests at the same time (one after the other, during the same 10 minute span of time), to reduce confusion.

Along with telling us to what you can, and cannot, connect, we need to know more about you, your computer, and the problem.  Please answer as best you can, to help us to help you.
  • Where are you located (city, province / state, country)?
  • What Service Provider connects your computer to the Internet?
  • What type of service do you use?  Cable (wired "television" network), Cellular Phone (wireless "3g" / "4g" network), DSL (wired "voice" network), satellite, wi-max ("wireless to your home") will all contribute to this type of problem, in different ways.
  • When did you first observe this problem?
  • When did you last not observe this problem?
  • Is the problem a. constant, b. cyclical (occasional, but semi predictable), or c. intermittent (occasional, and completely random)?
  • If "cyclical", have you observed any pattern to the problem?  Did you make any describable changes, before observing the problem?

To describe the results of the test sequence, use a sequence of "0" and "1", where "0" == "Unable to read contents", and "1" == "Able to read contents".  What we would prefer to see, for instance, would be all "1111-1111".  Please note that each test in the sequence is significant - this exercise contains no redundant tests, even though the link URLs may appear to be similar.  The apparent similarity in the link URLs is part of the affinity test sequence (see below for discussion about affinity and differential test techniques).
