Beware - Sneaky Blogger

I have been able to revert back to before the upgrade and can upload pics directly from my computer.

Beware......if I am mistaken, please let me know and I will retract this post.  This is what Blogger has done this week.

Blogger enticed me to upgrade (for free) to their new blogger called "Blogger Draft".    It promised more flexibility in the layout, larger pictures, etc.  I was excited so I went for it hook, line, and sinker.

Earlier, I wrote my post with the intent of adding pictures later.  I totally forgot till after the scheduled time (sorry) and they have now been included.   I quickly tried to upload my pictures and I can no longer upload from my hard drive.  I have to upload my pictures first to Picassa Web Album (part of Google).  Well, we all know that there is a limited amount of free space on Picassa album and then you have to pay. 

This is the same approach that Yahoo and Flickr dumped on us about three years ago. 

I'm not sure that I will want to pay for storage of my pictures especially when there is a decline in blogs to read, readership, etc.

I was on WebShots for awhile and now I cannot download my pictures.  I can only view them or order pics. 

What's up with these sites.  Let's complain to Blogger.


  1. Can you find out how and if you can undo the upgrade. I don't like the look at all. How did they approach you to upgrade? So I don't fall into the same trap. Renate

  3. hhmm, did you ever figure this out? I'm stopping by from the blog party but your blog here concerns me. I don't upload pics via blogger, I upload to flickr (for free) and then use the link and paste that into my blog, bigger pics and nice quality. lemme know if you figured it out, be happy to help! Also, your newest follower, I'm inspired by people that know since I use it in my work a lot.
