I tried and tried at least 20 times to upload a series of really cute pictures for Photo Story Friday. And I kept getting a page load error - it seems every time I try to upload pictures my internet connection is resetting itself in the middle of the process... I kept trying again and trying again. I usually have enough patience to wait it out and eventually I can get the pictures to go through. But this time, after an hour of re-trying I just gave up. The same thing seems to happen every time I try to update my family/friends blog. Its so irritating.
So then I thought it was a great time to post an award that Missy at Bees and Boo-Boos gave me... I meant to do it on Thursday, but then I had a bunch of other things going on around the house... so I tried to get the picture of the award to load, thinking that maybe it was erroring out because I was trying to upload too many pics at the same time and if I only did one something magical would happen and it would work ;)
Not so much. But this time I was getting a blogger error. Double Grrrrr. Maybe tomorrow will be a better photo upload day?
Until then, here I am, photoless and awardless today :(
PS: those strange little boxes you see at the bottom here are my efforts to copy and paste the image of the award. And of course now I can't find where I tried to copy and paste them, so they are just stuck there doing nothing ;) Triple Grrrrr.
And since I'm just rambling on here... when I changed my template and had to re-do my blogroll I inadvertently left some people out! If you are one of those people please let me know! Or if you want to be on my blogroll and aren't let me know. I think I've found most of the ones I was missing... I don't know how that happened. Well, actually I do - I think I just filled it from my "blogs I'm following" list - which left out anyone not on blogger and anyone who is on blogger but doesn't have their list of followers on the sidebar for me to click ;) My feeds are just a mess and completely unorganized and all over the place. I have some in Explorer (which I just don't even use anymore), some in foxfire (which I just didn't like the way the feeds work there) and then some in my google reader (which I haven't even opened in months!)... and somehow I managed to find that I didn't have some that I read all the time in any of my readers... I must have just put them in my blogroll only at some point. Confusing I know. I've just been doing my visiting by clicking on my blogroll or clicking on the person in the comments section. The feed readers are great and all, but I always end up clicking over to the blog itself, so it was an extra step and I'm all about not wasting any time ;)
What do you use for your feeds? And how do you keep them organized?
