Ooops- Siskin

I had intended to post this picture in the large format but I have such trouble editing posts in Blogger. Frequently when I put a post together I put the photos I want to use into a draft in Blogger and save them. Later I add the text. The problem arises if I want to make any changes. ANY changes. For example, if I put the photos into a draft on 7/30 and then add text and want to publish on 8/01, I have to change the date under "post options" before I publish. If I forget, the new post shows up under 7/31 and not as the most recent post. Or in this case, I forgot to change the picture size under "edit html " . So here's the problem: if I go into "edit posts" to make the changes I want ALL OF MY TEXT DISAPPEARS!!!
So,
Here's my larger photo of the pine siskin.
She's so pretty.
I think it's worth seeing it in the larger format.
Thank you.
Rant over.

Yes...she is beautiful. Glad you had to make her large! I had my first siskins last winter and they stayed for a long time. Hope to see them again this year - and I know what you mean with the Blogger editing - can be quite distressing!

I have had no problems with Blogger uploads and editing since I switched to Firefox as my browser. Internet Explorer was a nightmare! Great pictures of these birds in your recent posts. The yellow is so distinctive.

Why don't you try Flickr? STRESS-FREE photos.
And there are cool toys to play with (Like my magazine covers)

Mary said...

Try FLICKR.

That's a great photo, Linne :o)

I need to catch up with you.

Looks like the Blooger problem is fixed - this morning I wasn't allowed to view your site. By the way, I like your new template, A LOT.

Guess you learned like I did that when you make a draft and save it, it has to be complete. Personally, I don't like FLICKR but as you can see from the comments many do.

I'm new to your lovely blog. Your photos are amazing! Also, congraulations on the purchase of more property!!!

bird girl- Thank you. I wanted everyone to see her large and lovely!

Ruth- Thank you. It seems lots of people like Firefox...

Susan- You should be a spokesperson for Flickr! That magazine cover of Delia is a HOOT!!!

Mary- It turns out you were right about blogger locking blogs as spam. It all looks corrected now. Another vote for Flickr....
I like the new template too.

Richard- I think I may have stumbled on a way to retrieve my text- if I list by drafts under edit posts, then click on the post title, the text is there(but no pix). At least then maybe I can cut and paste...

Kathleen- Thank you for visiting and the compliments and congrats. I really appreciate it!

Lynne: I think I forget to change the date, more than I remember to change the date. It sure would help if the post options were visible the entire time I was working on the post, and not something I have to remember to look at.

Everyone needs a rant once in awhile! That's what blogger friends are here for...we've all been there :-)

She is gorgeous at either size.

Beautiful photo, Lynne!

Love being able to see the Siskin this close - beautiful!

Siskins are so cute. I have one every now and again down here in the desert, mostly in winter. As for blogger problems, been there done that. I've figured a few things out that make it easier but it can still give me fits! Maybe one of these days I'll learn HTML! Nothing can frustrate me more than when blogger doesn't work right. Looks like you have outsmarted the machine this time!

Rant away Lynne...sometimes we all need to! She's a beauty!
