Wordful Wednesday - Kinda!



Check out Angie's Blog for more Wordful Wednesday Post.

I always post my blog for the next day the night before because I don't have time in the mornings and I am at school all day until 3:30. While my students are at Gym and Nap. I get to visit other blogs and post comments.. This is how I have always done it and I have never had a problem up until now. Ugh.

This is exactly how I feel:


I have tried to upload my Wordful Wednesday Post 3 Times. It was full of pictures and a little confession but it would never post. I am so stinkin' aggrivated. I sat down to write this post @ 10:46 and now it is 12:33.

So this is my wordful wednesday post. I said, Kinda because I didn't take this picture myself. I am not sure if that is a rule or not. Has this ever happend to you guys? The pictues that I post will not show up when I am working on the post.. Only the HTML code is showing up and that makes it very hard to move the pictures around..

I will end this gripey post on a happy note! Click on over to my Bloggy Friend Megan's place. She is hosting her first give away ever! It is a fun one..

That IS SO frustrating!!! I quit trying to upload pics with blogger and started using Flickr instead. SO much easier. :)

Celine said...

Awww it still was a cute Wordful Wednesday me thinks! :)

Melissa said...

Oh, I feel like that so often. And I had the exact problem the other day. Took me 12 times to get a photo up. By the time I was done I wanted to throw the laptop across the room.

THAT is frustrating!

But your post was still a good one!

Have a great day!

Yes....isn't it frustrating when we see that we've been on here for way too long....because something isn't cooperating? Oh, I've been guilty of spending hours as well!

One evening I had so much trouble getting a Youtube video to show up. I am a determined person so I kept at it and by-golly I got it on there.

Have a good day. It's cool this morning, but "they" say the temp will be 79 by later this afternoon. My kind of weather for sure.

Becky, try writing your post in Word. As you upload each picture, copy and 'cut' the code from the post and paste it into Word where you want it. You can then copy what you have in Word and paste it into your post.

Sometimes posts can be frustrating - however, I've never had a problem uploading pics and moving them around in Blogger. On my "new post" window I have the option to do it in "compose" mode or "html" mode. I choose compose mode and my pictures appear right there and I can move them around, etc. Maybe this will help you? If you're already doing that, I simply have no more advice - sorry!

Hope your day goes better!

The Pink Potpourri said...

Pleasant Drive said...

I just get so irritated when anything on the computer doesn't work. You know, I'm part of the digital generation, so tech things come really easily, but when I can't do it or they don't work - ooohhh, it's on!

Joy said...

I hate it when blogger does not cooperate, it seems to have brainfarts on me all the time.

Straight to Your Hart said...

Love the picture..I feel like that somedays!! My blogger is getting frustrating as well..like the Flickr idea!!

Melissa said...

I know how frustrating that is...but hey, we are all allowed a "tantrum" every once in a while... go have yours--and ENJOY it!!

"J" said...

I just want to CHUNK the computer when it won't load stuff "like you want it loaded" lol =)

I went over and entered the contest! Thanks for the heads up! I love GIVEAWAYS and I love TARGET!!!!

Hope you are having a better day!!!

Rachel said...

I always have issues :)
How do you get so many ads on your site though?

Carla said...

I'm with ya . . . mastering this techno world can make us a little looney. I think I run into that problem more often than not.

I still like the picture, so there. :)

Live.Love.Eat said...

Hmmm. I can't say I have had that problem before. I compose my post in the Edit HTML tab so when I upload a pic, it appears there as an HTML and then I can cut and paste wherever I want around the words. I go back and forth to the Compose tab to see how it looks as I go. Did I make sense? I also use the edit HTML tab to correct all spacing issues that you cannot resolve in the Compose tab. Well, your post was great nonetheless!!!!!

OH! I hate when stuff like that happens! Blogger is so annoying sometimes and if I didn't have SO much in my blog, I would seriously consider switiching to something else. UGH!

Amy said...

I get very frustrated when Blogger does not cooperate with me. Ugh!

I frequently have the problem of spell check not working on my posts..Does that ever happen to you?

Here is to a hopefully less frustrating day of loading blog pictures.

God Bless,
Amy:)

SOmetimes blogger is so frustrating!

That is sooo frustrating when that happens! I don't why other than sometimes blogger goes down or has those issues and then they get resolved at some point way later than you want them to be :) Still cute! Hope you have a great day!

Megan said...

I hate when my computer acts up. It was being crazy last night, but it was our internet not the computer..either way I want to throw it all out the window!!

I get so frustrated sometimes when technology doesn't work - I feel your pain!

Elaine said...

I had a rough time once with photos and it is so frustrating. Never figured out what the problem was, however, it has never happened again.

Have a great day...

Ryanne said...

I just call on my husband to fix any troubles I have when posting, he is one of those computer geeks and with out him I probably couldn't even run a blog. I am a bit of a goober that way.

rachael said...

how frustrating!

Hi Becky ~ yes, it's happened to me many times and it's very frustrating!

Great post tho!

Hugz,
Michele

Michelle said...

Naughty blogger. I really dislike when it doesn't play nice.

The thing that drives me crazy is when the preview doesn't look like the actual post. Or the fact that sometimes it looks different on a PC than it does on my MAC!

stefanie said...

Apparently you aren't the only one having trouble! I run into problems now and then, but I somehow manage to figure things out.

I can't explain how in the world I fixed it five minutes later, though. I can't even remember five minutes ago most of the time...

AVT Coach said...

I too lost a little sleep posting this time. I just got home and have many posts to read!! Sorry for the problems..maybe Mr. Linky from Angies place did it! :)
