Blog Picture Problems
For the last couple of days something odd has been happening to the pictures on my blog.
On Sunday I did the post Beating the Winter Blues and several people commented that the pictures didn't show up for them. They were showing up fine for me and other people, they were showing up fine on Blotanical, then on Sunday evening they all vanished completely. They weren't even showing up in my Picasa account. I uploaded them again to Picasa and added them for a second time to the post. The odd thing was that the html code was still showing. I thought it was just a fluke but the same thing happened with my post on Schonbruun Gardens.
I decided to go through my blog to make sure that all of my pictures are there, but some of them are gone. There is no rhyme or reason to explain a pattern. Just random pictures, about ten or eleven, are gone from my posts. The above picture of my cat was one of those missing, while every other picture on the post was still there. Odd.
I was wondering if this is happening to anyone else. This may be a dumb question, but can someone steal your picture from a public Picasa or Flickr account, causing it to delete from the Blogger posts?
I'm hoping this is just a temporary problem with Blogger or Picasa and not something that is going to be an ongoing issue.
Edited to say: Another problem I'm having is that since yesterday comments to my posts are going into my junk/spam mailbox. This has never happened before. Anybody else having this happen?
