BLOGGER S#&KS!!!

I am so frustrated with BLOGGER... I know it is free, but please.... Why is it always going down for photo uploading????? For the past two weeks I have tried to upload one of my photos for FAVORITE FOTO FRIDAY.... I thought it was ME last week and actually when to KINKOS to get professional help scanning and copying the photo for this Friday's photo.....

Is this why so many have gone to typepad????

I am going to bed now and will hope tomorrow will be another blogging opportunity!!!

For a little eye candy, I was able to get a picture from the internet.... this is not Mesa, although it does look like her and I know she could do THAT TRICK holding the flag and all..... if she wanted to.

That is so annoying, it happens to me all the time. That's why when we were in China we used flicker.com. You can blog right from flicker and it's not that expensive!!!

It has been awful lately!!!! I'm so ticked off at Blogger. I would switch to Typepad in a heartbeat but I just changed my url about a month ago and I don't want everyone to have to change again to get to my site.

I use Flickr as my backup photo posting as well. Check it out.

Oh, I should say, I use the free version of Flickr.

It's funny you mention the photo thing since I just uploaded some photos from Flickr to my blog for the 1st time today. I had Flickr create a "tag" for me and it displays a bunch of photos in one strip. I couldn't figure out how to get more than one photo in each blog post when I actually tried to do my post through Flickr...I'm having a mental block with this. I'd better ask m3 for help!

You're not alone. Blogger sucks but the thought of converting my entire archives to Typepad blows my mind so I stay, much to my chagrign.

This is coming from the chick who was close to needing Ativan over her bottombar/sidebar. (Whew, that's fixed). Somehow a little '/div' got eaten when I put in Bravenet code for the poll (now gone).

I will tempt the fates and say I have not yet had an photo uploading issues on Blogger. Yes, I expect the computer will be in flames from spontaneous combustion soon ;0)

I haven't been around but a couple of months on blogger but the thought of changing definitely makes me want to stand in line at the pharmacy :0)

Posting on Blogger can be frustrating. I have my crafty blog on Typepad and tried to post the other night and had problems. But, I like Typepad so much better - will eventually move T&C to TP

I have never had trouble loading images or photos, but I always put them in photobucket.com first. Have you tried that? It's totally free. I know it adds another step, but I think it's worth it. Let me know if you want to know more.

I have no doubt that Mesa could hold a flag! If that gal can hold two balls.....she can hold anything!

There's a VERY simple work aroudn to this problem with blogger. I saw it a few months back in their comments section from other irate bloggers...

If you cna't load a picture into the current post. Save it as draft. Load all the pictures your heart desires into an OLDER post, that already had pictures into it. Take the text that blogger creates for the photo, cut and paste into the new post and voila, you have your pictures.

Ok, so not without being a pain in the butt, however, it works. Sometimes I have to pick a post from May...

Lisa, there is an easy fix. I have found that when I am unable to upload a photo...go to "tools", "internet options" and hit "delete cookies". When it says delete all...click yes. Then try to upload a photo. This has worked EVERY time that I have an issue with uploading!
