Damn and Blast It aka Blogger, You are a Giant Pain in the Bottom!!

You've probably noticed that the blog has managed to lose a lot of its pictures... its thanks to a glitch with Picasa, and its deleted my Blogger album that hosted all the pictures for the blog! I am trying to sort it out, and hopefully over the next couple days all the pictures should be back on. I think I am going to get rid of Picasa altogether and use Flickr from now on!

I do hate Blogger sometimes :-(

  2. Shireen, create a Flickr account. You can use a Yahoo login if you have one. Then upload all the pictures to it. You can organise them into sets. Then you can use the HTML code and use that in your blog posts, instead of uploading to Blogger. That way you have a backup, plus you're no longer reliant on Picasa to host your Blogger pictures.

    I now have to upload every single picture on to Flickr, then go back and capture the code, then edit the posts and republish. Aaaargghhh!!! Such a pain... I am getting very close to giving up Blogger for Wordpress or summat!!

  5. What a mightly pain indeed. I got in a real tizzy when I lost a post and some comments (never did get them back), but your blogger mishap sounds much worse.
