When you go into a site they ask for email and password, computer info and permissions...I read quickly so that I might have instant gratification. Also I need to start dinner so I am in a hurry! I truly amaze myself that I have figured out to do the things associated with the blog, at this point I am thinking I am pretty Internet Savvy, WRONG!
I'm in the site now and it asks "Do you want to transfer one picture or all?" In a hurry, I did all. Now delete the ones I don't want. Lots of pictures and one file in particular are duplicates of another file. In my little brain I said, "Already have these, delete." No warning at Picasa to bloggers that deleting files could affect your blog...at least not on the page that I looked at all of 2 seconds before deleting! Later on Friday night when I was checking comments on the blog, my pictures were gone. Text but no photos. Two weeks ago it was photos and no text. Odd how Blogland can pull the rug out from under you like that. I Googled the problem, pictures from blog gone forever when you delete the file. I still have them on my computers' hard drive but have you ever tried to remember what you posted to go along with text? Hey, I can't remember what I did yesterday so this was going to be a problem.
Saturday I was pretty down about the huge task of trying to recover when my husband said, "Why don't you just start fresh, GrannyMountain II?" Good advice and now I'll just fix the best posts at my leisure and go on posting a day at a time, just like I've been doing.
Life is like that, bumps in the road but you just figure out how to go over them, or around them!
