Blogger help needed

When I logged onto my blog yesterday morning, it didn't point to my blog ... it pointed to some odd site.

I use Blogger and bought my URL from them last year. It's only $10 a year and they take care of everything (registering, etc.).

I searched their site to see what I should do.

I couldn't find a contact on their site to asked about it so I posted my query on their forum.

I got this response back:

nitecruzr has posted an answer to the question "Not my blog when you go to the URL":

Your problem is in the DNS addresses. Please read the cited articles for details.

I'll show excerpted Dig logs, here.

Here's what you have:

purple4mee.com. 1800 IN A **.**.***.***
www.purple4mee.com. 1800 IN A **.**.***.***

That's a problem.

Here's what you need:

Did you get email from Google Apps, when you paid for the custom URL?

I'm sure I could figure out how to fix it ... except that because Blogger set it up, I can't get at the DNS address.

So I responded back to the forum but haven't heard anything more.

Can someone pleez help me?!

In the meantime, I've switched back to the Blogspot address.

Yeah that's what happened when I tried to link to your site via a bookmark. Have reset my link to this page.

ooh that doesn't look fun. I hope you get it figured out soon. I host mine through hostgator and I haven't come across anything like this yet.

Is there a help desk you could call?

That's totally what I found! I thought your server must have gone wonky. I deeply hope you get this resolved.

Wow, I wish I could help but seeing as you can't really get in there yourself I wont be of much help. I have my own domain and use self installed Wordpress. I am finding it hard that they are not reacting to this quickly. I would be upset if I were you. I do hope they come through for you soon!
