As of today, I have restricted my blog due to the high volume of spam I am getting in Dashboard. I doubt this will fix the issue, but short of changing to another blog site, I'm at a loss on how to stop this issue. I have notified Blogger and also the sites the spam is coming from. If you are one of my followers and aren't allowed in, please feel free to contact me-either here or on Facebook.
I hope that this problems is soon resolved and I'll be able to open it up again.
