Just a note to all

If you are planning on ever moving from Blogger. My advice…Don’t upload photos to Blogger. Instead use Flickr or another image host. On Flickr I can make the photos private which I like. Then, take the address (URL) for the picture and place that into the spot on Blogger for adding an image from the web.

Actually, using Flickr or another service is best for those of you with your own website address. Reason being is that pictures eat up bandwidth.

I have just spent about two hours uploading pics to Flickr and then replacing up to two months of pictures uploaded to Blogger in old posts. I have three more months to go.

The reason is that when I move from Blogger I will lose all my pics. Since these pictures are hosted by Blogger, the images are not transferable to a new service like WordPress, which I will be using.

So, if you are a new blogger keep this in mind. If you have been doing this for a while you are stuck like me…going back through the months (luckily, I have only five) or you are happy where you are. Or, you are thinking, “Wow, it took her five months to figure that out!”
