Well after being constantly frustrated with Blogger, waiting patiently while it decides if I can upload images in 5 seconds or 60mins. I went on my own hunt to see how I could speed up this process and upload images quicker. .Delete my images I thought. Well I sped things up alright I deleted my whole picasa web album. I tested deleting 3 images one by one to see how it affected my blog, as it warns that images deleted will be deleted from my blog. I checked my blog each time and no images were gone. I then checked my upload picture editing tool u know the one that gives u 3 options (from the blog, picasa album, Url) what happened to the one that just pops up Upload Images that's the one I always wanted.
Anyhow, hooray the images were gone which what I was hoping for. So in my mind the place that stored my images on my blog were gone, but the images on my blog were still there, perfect I thought. I don't have to wait 1 hour to upload images. I was very pleased with myself for cracking the code, my blog looked the same last night and this morning. It's afternoon now and all my images on my blog have gone!!!!!!!!!!!!! And apparently their is no way of restoring a deleted picasa web album.Blogger or Picasa do not have any backup. Of course I have all these images on my own external hardrive. However really do I want to upload 2 years worth of images. ???????? So here I am, with a blog with stories and post's with no corresponding images. I could get really creative here and go back and add new images to past posts, that could be interesting and I might do that. That could spice things up. Looking and responding in a new light to the past. I am more used to blogging now so I might see things differently now. Their are alot of creative things I could do. However is that going to solve the problem of waiting a very long time to upload images.hmmmm probably not, blogger is always working on it I read. So here I am, I may have to create a blog on my own website so I have control of everything and can right any wrongs and progress it as I want. In saying that, the reason I love blogger is because I like community and I really appreciate the global interactive communication. So here I am. Any thoughts anybody. I won't be doing anything for quite awhile while I figure some stuff out. So I am disappointed that my readers won't see any pictures that correspond to my past posts. I also feel a bit jaded as my commitment to my blog over the last 2 years has gone. I feel this was my introduction period. As I stated I a,m feeling more comfortable now, (well not now). I am very definite that I will continue to blog, but where is my next big decision. For now I'll just carry on as usual. And I will be doing just that for now. Candyx
New images, new times! the past is history, the future a mystery, the present a gift
p.s. I also checked my facebook as my blog is streamed through my face book and all my posts still have their images. So their is a record on my facebook. which is good news. Does anyone no if you can back facebook up?????? this is incorrect my facebook images have gone too! I won't cry over spilt milk, but you may see a few tears over a spilt glass of good Cab Sav. I'm shaking my head!
By the way Maddy I loved your post and that image. Can't wait for the next one!
