Blogger Problems & New Bear . . .

I've been having some problems with Blogger.  Maybe you can offer some advice.  A few days ago I was trying to add a new picture to my header & a message appeared telling me I had exceeded my picture quota.  Upon future investigation it informed me I would need to buy more room for pictures.
This morning some pictures from posts the past few days were missing & in their place were black squares with an ! mark.  I reposted the pictures.  Now I'm wondering if they'll stay there.
Have you ever experienced this?  If so, what did you do?

My son was able to help me add a picture to my header yesterday.  He showed me what to do next time.
After listening to the instructions (which went in one ear & out the other) I told him he could help me change the picture for February.  HA!  Strange thing about this mess is I can still add pictures when making a post. Go figure!

On a lighter note. . .

Meet my new teddy bear!  I've named her Betty.
She was a Christmas gift from Kari's parents, Carol & Tim.
Isn't she cute?

We're both ready to cheer on the OSU Cowboys when they play
 Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl tonight at 7:30.

Hi! I read your blog a lot.. What it is is all your pictures on your blog are saved in a google Picasa Album. That only allows you so much storage with pictures. So what you have to do is go to your google account.. and search around and you will see where you can buy more space. Its pretty cheap...just use a credit card and you'll be set. You could also just google " Need more space on blogger with picasa " and it should take you where you need to go!

Have a great day!

I bought more space. It was dirt cheap for a lot of storage. Worth it to me since I don't have to pay Blogger anything to host the blog.

Your bear...and you...are so cute!!

Too bad about the picture quota...I'm surprised that hasn't happened to me also. One thing I'm disappointed in Blogger for is the small size of their 'large' photo choice. I can't seem to find my way around their new format so I always come back to the old one.

Howdy-do to your new bear, Betty! I got a bear for Christmas too, and sleep with her but she has no name. How rude of me...I'll have to think of one. Maybe. She's great for keeping my neck warm...=). I'm over visiting from sweet Patsy's blog. Happy New Year to you & your family!

Suzanne said...

Sorry to hear your blogging woes. Hope they are resolved soon. Take care. Happy New Year!

Betty is a cute addition to your collection of OSU spirit. Good luck getting your blog pictures figured out.

That happened to me once. I don't download my pics on my blog anymore. I just download the in files. That way I don't have to purchase more space from blogger.

Kerin said...

Hmm... I've heard that you need to purchase more space on Picasa.
I haven't run into this problem....yet.

Cutie pie bear. Such a thoughtful gift.

Have fun watching the game!

Space may be dirt cheap but I'm a miser and don't want to pay for more space. So I just went back and deleted some pics from my very early blog posts.

How 'bout those Pokes?! What an exciting game!
