Problems with my blog

Many a problem I face here
On my blog;
Even to publish, an uphill task;
Many a friend
Do send me complains;
Difficult they find
To open my blog;
I just can’t say what is amiss;
So hard to work,
But one’s efforts to see blocked.
You see the point that keeps me worried?
Can’t put a picture on this post;
Everything is just upside down;
How long this goes,
I do not know.
Just have to wait
And hope for the best.
