Dreamhost not working?

Umm… okay. I’m not sure that my problem is with Dreamhost, but it’s the only logical conclusion I can come to. I have a website that has a journal as a part of it, which is powered by Blogger. The journal hasn’t been publishing. I thought the problem was with Blogger, so I ignored it for a while. Then, I decided I was going to try a new layout on my website so I tried to connect with Dreamhost through WS_FTP. It won’t connect. I double-checked the password and everything, and that’s all good. The connection problem, coupled with my problems publishing through FTP with Blogger makes me think that something in Dreamhost is awry. If there’s anything you all think I’m doing wrong please let me know. Thanks.
