Fix Connection Time Out and Unable to Connect Issues for Blogger Blogs.
Here are the steps you can easily operate to fix these issues quickly -- from your end. Ensure that you have strong & stable internet connections before proceeding.
- Clear your web browser cookies & cache if needed your web browser History too.
- Temporary disable any web browser extensions.
- Update your web browser to the newest versions
- Close your web browser.
- Disconnect the internet with your device.
- Turn off your modem, wait several minutes then turn On modem (if accessible).
- Temporary disable any anti-virus installed with your device.
- Launch your web browser and view your blog.
At #7 ensure to browse only websites you trust. Enable your anti virus program immediately once you are sure there is not obstructions connecting the internet from your device applications.
In most cases step #1 will fix your connection timeout issues.
However due to heavy caching by web browsers & devices these days, disconnecting the internet & resetting the modem will "flush" old/bad/corrupted cache'd data.
By doing so, your device & web browsers will renew these cache data & connections & hopefully fix your error connection timeout issues.
Worst case scenario, by turning off your device, then turn back on, might also reset/clear the cache'd data kept internally by your device.
