Google Blogger sucks

How can I get anything done??? I was posting this morning when I got this message:
HTTP method POST is not supported by this URL

What??? So I tried to go to the main Blogger page and sure enough:

Blogger and Blog*Spot are unavailable

Blogger and Blog*Spot are unavailable right now. We apologize for this interruption in service.


Blogger is undergoing brief maintenance and will return in a few short minutes.

I understand it's a free service, but it's not like there's an option for us to pay. B/c I would gladly pay if the service were reliable and the product good. But Blogger (even New Blogger!) pales in comparison with Wordpress, and these unannounced outages are intolerable!

Now I'm getting a 502 Server Error:
Server Error
