Welcome to my Blog-ft!

Could there be a more frustrating feeling than trying to participate in the first ever (maybe ONLY), 1st Annual BooMama Bloggy Home Tour--and Blogger is not cooperating. I have tried every which way I can think of to load my digital photos--to no avail. I'm stumped! And here I am, coffee brewing, ambience set, and I can't make this photo uploading thing work for the life of me! I've tried--really--I have. I have been expecting your company all week long--and here I am with sweaty fingers and tense shoulders....and no way to open the door!

On the advice of a famous screen writer....."If you build it--they will come." In blog-speak, this translates....."If you post it...they will come!" I'll keep trying!

Anyone else having troubles with blogger this weekend?

I've noticed some people talking about how blogger wouldn't let them upload their pics and some of them did their home tour in a slideshow. I personally don't know. I didn't try it.

Sorry you are having a difficult time. I did finally get mine posted but it took a while. There is no rush there are still new ones coming in. I hope you get it, I do enjoy your site and will keep coming back

Sometimes when Blogger is giving me fits I just go to flickr.com and upload. After you get them uploaded there, you can click on the picture you want, pick the size you want it to be and then copy either a link or html code. Just paste it into the text of your post and Voila! You have circumvented blogger upload.

Kristen did mine for me and that's what she used - flickr.com, I am quite sure. I was working at trying to figure out blogger when she called and said she had it all done! Hope to see you soon! Come over and visit in cyberspace, since this week-end didn't work out in reality.

Hope you manage to get your tour up. Just got back from a couple of days away and am visiting "my roll"...so far, I've not had trouble uploading photos and wouldn't know what to do even if I was! Hope your day is going good.

I had a little trouble with blogger, but mostly with comments, not pics. I have read of MANY who are having problems with blogger, though. I hope you get your pics up, I'm anxious to see your vacation home. :-)

Have a blessed weekend, Diane. :-)

I finally got on with photobucket and bypassed blogger upload and got the last two of mine on like that! Put yours up when you can we'll stop by again!

If I had a digital camera, and IF blogger cooperated, this would ge the perfect opportunity for me to post pictures of my wonderfully newly cleaned from top to bottom home. I had company this week, and I took the time to clean everything. It was so nice not to even have to do laundry today. All I had to do was unload the dishwasher from where the company shared dessert at my house.
Maybe if I keep working I can get me a camera one of these days and participate in all these fun posting games. I think that is why I have so few readers. I am visually unappealing and tend to be longwinded. Can you believe that? LOL

Do keep trying. Lots and lots of people out here were in fits with blogger this week. But everything seems to be back to normal this morning. So you should try again and then go back to BooMama's and link again so you're at the bottom of her list and people know you succeeded. Sooooo frustrating, isn't it?

Beckie said...

Well... I'll come back and see if you are able to load those pictures!! :)
Blessings!

Bummer...we'll wait for blogger to cooperate and stop by again. Good Luck!
