Photobucket & TILT

If only someone had told me how to manage my photos better at the beginning of blogging...

Because they keep disappearing!!

I feel like this issue should be better outlined on Blogger, but I guess they don't like pointing out their shortcomings.  I mean, it's not directly their fault, but I feel like they should not offer the options of uploading a url image, if they will probably go vamoose.  Ok, ok, so maybe I should have surmised that, but I didn't and now I am pissed.

If ONLY I had known this BEFORE I created three-hundred-and-something posts, that I now have to go through and edit. I want to say eff it and give up, but what kind of blogger would that make me?
Sane Lazy.
It may take awhile, but I am now uploading my photos to Photobucket {thanks Whitney!}, which will free up my computer and keep them private (unlike Picasa). Let me tell you, just uploading pictures takes forever, but I think it will be worth it in the end. One teeny tiny upside to the Colorado fires, is that I have had lots of time at home to work on le blog.
So new bloggers: I suggest doing something like this from the get-go. 
SAVE your sanity.
You're welcome.

Since no one told me that anything was wrong, many of you probably missed out on a lot of the photos from the Our Fairytale... section. They have been fixed, so feel free to visit! I realize I need to edit the actual "story", as it was written at the beginning of my blogging endeavors, but you will get the gist. I'm pretty sure the pictures get the point across anyways.

Some of you might have wondered what TILT is.
It stands for "Things I Love Thursdays", and I am pleased to have been asked to participate in the first installment on Kenzie's blog, Crazy, Beautiful Mommyhood.

As you know...I have had a rough week, so remembering the things I love, is a refreshing change.

+I love that my hubby filled out a "His & Hers" questionnaire, and had me in tears with his sweet answers. I will be sharing that very soon.

+I love reading Our Fairytale over and over again, and apparently Will does too.
That makes me incredibly happy.

+I love that I have two vlogs going up this week. Not sure why I like them so much, but I do.

+I love that we have waged a war against captchas, and the post that Hillary dedicated to it yesterday was awesome. She's proof that most people don't know that they even have them.

+I love the support I am getting from the blog world. I have been offered so many places to stay, and no longer feel stuck. Weiser says thanks for the invites too.

+I love how our community is banding together in this time of need.

+I love the amazing firefighters that are the true heroes.

+I love that Kenzie was sweet enough to ask me to be a part of this with her, today.

Now I'm asking you, won't you join us?

Come back tomorrow for the final link up of the 30 Day Budget Challenge.
We get to wrap it all up, AND I will be sharing a video dedicated to Kelly!

ummm, now you've got me wondering about my photos from when I first started blogging. I'm gonna have to go check it out. Love the "TILT" part :) Prayers still coming for you fellow Coloardians (or however you say it lol)

Meghan @ More from Meg said...

Oh no, I should go back and check on my early posts!!! I could see myself getting soooooo frustrated with that too!!

Nicole said...

I keep praying and praying for rain down there for you, and the safety of all people an animals involved. I hate fire :(

Amanda said...

Ahhhh I can't wait to read the his and hers questionnaire! I bet it's going to be wonderful! I like the idea of doing TILT. My post today was not quite as upbeat. I'm sorry that you're photos keep disappearing on you though :(

CeCe @Frugalista Married said...

I'm a captcha hater too! Thanks for spreading the word on it. Hope your week gets better...I've been watching what's going on in the news. It's so sad. We tend to get fires here too but other then a day off work I've never been personally affected.

Kenzie CBMommyhood said...

That is SO frustrating about your pictures! I would be so irritated.
I heard about the fires on the news just the other day - oh my gosh! That is so scary :( I would let you stay with me but I am quite a few states over.. My hopes and prayers are with everyone over there.
I can't wait to read the his & hers questionnaire - that sounds like such a cute idea!
You guys are the cutest couple :D

Thank you SO much for linking up - it means a lot to me :D

Alana Christine said...

Can't wait to see your other vlog!

Nicole said...

Originally my blog was linked to one email, and all my pics prior to Oct 2010 were tied with that email and my hubby shut it down the other day b/c they tried to hack it. Now I've lost all pictures on those posts. Wanna fix mine when you're done. LOL j/k... I think ;)

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Aww, I'm going to check out your "Our Fairytale" page right now! Looking forward to the His & Hers questionnaire!

Whitney @ Everything Happens For a Reason said...

So sorry that your pictures are disappearing :( I don't know what would cause that to happen? Luckily, photobucket will help you store them and hopefully won't cause it to happen again.
