Drat and double drat!
I deleted someone's candy link on my blog and I don't know who it is to retrieve it. In a silly moment of mind wandering, I didn't glance carefully before hitting the delete button. I counted down the 2 candy's I needed to delete and deleted the first one (near the top) and then didn't account that now the numbers would be one less and promptly deleted the wrong one. Drat. Oh well, if I win blog candy in the next 10 days or so, it will be someone else's lucky day! hahahaha
Now, on to my double drat!
This is not my day...I was researching how to help a fellow blogger who has run out of Picasa room and can't post pictures to her blogger blog, and discovered that I have used up 99.65% of my Picasa room too. I know now that I should have been re-sizing pictures to 800 x 800 pixels before uploading them. But I have learned that tidbit a little late!
It seems that deleting photos or resizing them now, is a moot point.as it doesn't seem to give me any more room. I think that once I am over the free size limit google resizes my photos automatically...the problem lies in that very first time when you find out mid upload that you are rejected, you have to know how to resize them in mid transaction or you can't proceed..
Some of you know that I have a brain injury from a car accident. I find it hard to learn new things especially from written directions. I do better with a demo! I have been reading how to resolve this photo storage problem and now feel like my head is ready to explode...a common symptom of post concussion syndrome. You get that feeling when you try to rush your thoughts, multitask, learn something new, get tired, etc.
I think I can avoid running out of room if I switch to google+
Google+ gives you more Picasa storage and lets you download photos larger than 800x800 without using up free space...(see I did learn something). But it appears that once I take google+, it automatically names your photos within your Picasa albums your real name not your bloggy name.
I'm the pea with the family that fiercely guard their web privacy. Part of it is due to their jobs and I always endeavor to protect their feelings on this topic. So I need to find a solution to my nameand their names showing on photos.
Does anyone know how to resolve my dillemna...or how to take google+ and not share my albums at all?
There are 3 bloggers today with this problem that I know of...eventually everyone of us on a blogger blog will face this.
I could buy extra space for $2.50 monthly and will do that if I have to.
Thanks for any suggestions.
