There was a time when I
used to recover quickly from traveling but now that I'm . . . well, let us just
say "older". . . it takes me much longer to get back into the swing
of things. For most of this week I've been busy playing "catch-up"
with laundry, dusting, vacuuming, and reading my favorite blogs. Though
I've taken several photos during my trip I have unfortunately done little with
them and they are still snuggled safely within my camera's memory card awaiting
One of the
reasons I haven't rushed to release my photo hostages is because I am
completely overwhelmed by my existing photo files and am now cognizant that I
am in dire need of a better way to file, store and organize them. Over my five years and four months of blogging I've amassed an impressive stash
of blog photos . . . I've also discovered, much to my dismay, that when I move a
photo file it can affect my blog adversely. The effect is similar to the dreaded exclamation point embedded within a triangle pictured at the top of my blog.
So I have been trying to
backtrack, locate those missing pictures and retrieve them, at times my attempts have
been futile and I fear that I may have inadvertently deleted a photo from one
file only to have it deleted permanently from my photo cache.
I would love to hear how
you handle the storing and filing of your online photos and am open to any and
all suggestions . . . short of abandoning this blog and starting over from
scratch . . . which, seriously had entered my mind on a couple of
occasions. But only briefly. :D
