What Have I Done To My Poor Blog

Or how to destroy a blog without meaning to.
What a mess I have made of my blog.
I recently went into my pictures and decided
I needed to delete some I would not need again.
PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS!
After I deleted them I noticed some MOST
of my blog pictures had disappeared!
I complained to my daughter, she said
maybe the link to the picture was messed up.
"You didn't fool with your pictures did you?"
"No, I didn't do anything to the blog pictures,
I just deleted some from my picture file I didn't
need anymore." 
I may not have needed them but my poor blog did.
Now I will try to restore my blog to it's previous
glory, but WHY DO I DO THINGS LIKE THIS?
Cindy, if you are reading this please put me
on the prayer list.

Love to all,
Debbie

Hi Debbie,
hope you didn't delete the pics. in your picasa webalbum but it sounds like you did.

Well, I have almost done that before! Sometimes I end up with duplicates and when I start to delete one, it says that if you delete it and it was connected to A blog then it would be deleted from the blog because there wouldn't be a link anymore. Can you say run-on sentence?

Anyway, hope you recover your picture links somehow!

Have a blessed evening!

Oh my - does this mean I have something new to discover on a road I haven't traveled yet? Now you have me scared!

Linda said...

I'm nervous every time I try to change something, that everything will disappear!

Hi Debbie, I have been meaning to delete some pictures from my picture file, now I'm afraid to. But everyone tells me if you have alot of pictures on your computer it will slow it down alot, if you don't delete some of them! I hope you get your pictures back somehow! Blessings~~~ Daphne

I'm sorry to hear you are having blog woes. I do love the color and background of your blog - very pretty! Hope you can get the picture thing resolved soon! :)

I did the same thing last year...live and learn I guess...I was trying to save some money by not upping my Google storage...didn't work....I will now gladly buy more storage!!! I did go back and put some photos back in but got so tired of it so I quit!!!

DeeDee said...

you mean..if you delete them of your computer they are gone from your blog also...? man I have tons on mine...let me know if thie is true casue I will need to start a special file for them them...

I didn't realize that would happen! Thanks for posting the warning. I would have thought once they were uploaded you wouldn't have to worry about it. Does the same thing happen when you move photos around...into different folders on your computer? Sorry you are having such troubles. Don't you wish there was an 'undo' button for things like that.

This shouldn't have happened to you Debbie, I can delete a photo on my computer and it is still on my blog because it is uploaded to blogger through Picasa, they all should be stored. I think LOL

Haven't done that particular stunt yet, but I have a few posts that I had made a couple of drafts while deciding what I wanted to do with the post. When the post was published I went back to delete the extra drafts, and the message came up that if I deleted those posts (they had pictures) I would lose the same pictures in other posts also. I am not sure blogger means that, but none the less, I now have a few drafts that I do not think I need, but am afraid to delete.
Do you know what the pictures are, and where/if you can find them? What fun, not.

I tryed to organize pictures on my desk top, they moved all over the place.We are going out east this fall so before I go I'm going to copy aoll my oictures off my desk top computer and put them on my laptop and work on that while I'm gone hope it will work the way I hope LauraQ

Patti said...

So sorry this has happened to you.
I did the same thing years ago. I felt like throwing up!
I guess we all learn from our experiences but it would be nice if Blogger would warn people of this.

Hope you are able to retrieve all of what you lost :(

Hugs
Patti

Hi. Thanks for visiting and following. I can't believe I won Rebecca's giveaway!! Your blog is beautiful; I don't know what it looked like before it got messed up :). The Sound of Music is such a classic great movie. Edelweiss was my hubby's mom's (and I think her mom's) favorite song.
Thanks for the encouraging blog.

Oh trust me, things like this happen to us all.
I will put you on my prayer list. Cindy inspired me to do the prayer list, she's a sweetie.
Hugs,
Kim

Ohhh mannn! Blogger is touchy. I turned off the need for the code to be typed in and ALL my blog comments disappeared forever! They should have a warning :(
Lucy, huh? :)

I get so nervous changing stuff, I have wanted to switch to 3 column for some time, but decided against it for this exact reason. I am not exactly computer savvy, but I am glad to see things look normal here!

Oh no! You poor thing! Sounds like something I would do. I have felt your pain...

Now you have scared me. I got a new computer a couple weeks ago...none of my old photos are on this computer. I think I'd better check out my old posts.

Dorthe said...

Oh sweetie, so sad for you, that is my nightmare, as I could easily have done that,too-I so hope for you you will find them somewhere.
Wishing you a great monday,dear.
I just returned home after 4 wonderfull dayes with my grandkids in Copenhagen.
