** Updated 16/5, with last 3 messages on Blogger Buzz - Looks like we will eventually have our comments back too:
Update (5/15 10:55PM PST): Blogger should be back to normal for the vast majority of people affected by this issue -- if posts are still missing, please check your drafts (you may need to republish). We are in the process of restoring comments made during the affected period from 7:37am PDT on 5/11 to 1:30pm PDT on 5/12. If you still have other issues, please contact us via the temporary form we’ve set up for this particular issue. Thanks again for bearing with us, we’re deeply sorry for the inconvenience we caused. We’ll share an incident report later this week.
Update (5/14 5:37 PM PST): We're making progress restoring comments, some blogs with a lot of content are taking a little more time. Thanks for bearing with us.
Update (5/13 7:46PM PST): Nearly all posts since Wednesday are restored, now bringing back comments from last couple days. We expect the comments to be back this weekend or sooner.

I noticed that lots of my blog friends were commenting on the Blogger problems from the last couple of days.
Just to let you know how to find out the current state of play: If you go to your Blogger Dashboard, at the top, there is a box with text in it. There are 2 links (in tiny writing!!), one of which says "Report Issues". This takes you to the Blogger Help area / forums. You can look around for stuff you are interested in from here. There is currently a box at the top of the main Help/Forum screen, linking to a Post from Blogger, which talks about the problems.
This is the link, to save you having to do all the above just now: Blogger Buzz
The latest news, just now, is that they have restored the missing posts and are in the process of putting back the comments. They hope to have that finished over the weekend, so those who were distressed about losing comments and/or special posts can feel relieved!
Back soon with a "Real Post"!
