A Day of Internet #Fail Welcomes Back Babble's MomCrunch. Sorta.

It seems fitting, doesn’t it, that we’d be back here at Babble writing about all things moms, technology, social media, and blogging on the day half the internet breaks?

Well, it did. And we are.

I was working this morning when my browser Chrome, naturally shut down without warning four times in a row. Then I couldn’t get into my Gmail which doesn’t seem like a huge deal, of course, except that meant no Google Drive for me and I no longer have a word processing program, choosing instead to do all my client writing in what used to be known as Google Docs.

Oops. If that’s not a cautionary tale about cloud technology, I’m not sure what is.

It turned out that the outage was brief, thankfully, but that didn’t stop many of us from taking to Twitter to freak out about it.

Then to add to the fun, Facebook went down. Boy oh boy did Twitter go crazy then! You’d think that the world had ended. Fortunately, that was another short outage, so everyone is back to posting links that only a third of their followers will ever see.

Good times!

You may have noticed that it’s been a while since MomCrunch has shown up here at Babble. Well, see, it’s because the folks at Babble wanted to work extra hard to get everything just right before we could re-launch with the new design. Now, you may have noticed that this post isn’t actually on a MomCrunch page. Do not fret. While for now you can still get our archives over at the old site, Babble has instead integrated our content into the “Mom” section so that more folks can find it and read it.

Which totally works! The whole MomCrunch team, of course, is still here to write about the stuff we used to write about so please be sure to keep visiting!

So much has happened in the last few weeks! I’ve got so much to catch you up on. Instagram drama, Yelp reviewers being sued, the possible death of SEO… Trust me. More to come!
