Users trying to use the blog functionality (Journal Function of Blackboard Learn) may receive upon submitting or saving as a draft the following message:

For reference, the Error ID is 910ca9e5 etc etc
Solution:

This can happen on some Blackboard versions if you are posting a long journal entry, especially if you are cutting and pasting directly from Word (which can include many hidden formatting characters which make the entry much larger than it looks).  If you are copying from Word, try pasting the entry into a simple editor like Notepad first, then cutting and pasting from there to get rid of all the hidden formatting.
