Trying Something New

I have been home alone all day, and I am pretty bored. I washed, dried and folded 3 loads of laundry, did the dishes, took care of a sick kid, and graded a stack of papers. After doing that I decided to play on my laptop. I have been trying to find a website that I like to store my photos on that I can also use to post them on my blogsite. I think after trying several, I still like Photobucket the best. It has a lot more features than I originally thought, and I have been pleased with it since Aunt Patti showed it to me last year. I do still like DropShots, though because it is so easy to upload the pics AND they give you a tag for all the thumbnails of the photos. So, I guess for now it is a toss up between the two. I have pics posted at both sites. While I was uploading some pics to PhotoBucket, I saw an ad for Flock...which I originally thought was just their Uploading Tool so you could upload more like DropShots. Well, it is and it isn't. It is more of a web browser. It had some features that I thought would be cool....like it said you can drag your photo into the Comments box on Blogger and post pics in your comments. Well, that sounded fun to me, and neat....but alas it doesn't work. Every time I do it, I get the message that My HTML cannot be accepted. I don't have a clue how to make it acceptable, because I have tried several things, but the point was for it to be easy, and if I have to do something else to make it work....it's not easy! So, I am posting this blog entry through Flock to see how easy that is and whether or not it is worth keeping Flock running on my computer. I am leaning towards getting rid of it, but I just wanted to try this out first. It also said I could post pics onto Facebook, which really sounded good, because that is some slow uploading, but I cannot figure that one out yet either. There is one more option for me to try on it, but I don't think it will make it worth me keeping it. If any of you have any ideas about any of this (hint hint, Michael--my bestest big brother ever) let me know your thoughts.

hehe...I haven't posted pics on my blog in a long time; it's just too much trouble with blogger no matter what way you go.

I write and edit all my entries in Word 2007 and it posts them directly for me.

Of course, you know that I have NO clue. I have stuck with photobucket, but really haven't had much time to figure out anything new and useful for our blogsites.

One thing that I hate to even mention is.....it is hard for me to read your posts because the text isn't bold enough for my old eyes... Will you consider changing it just a little?? I LOVE YOU!!!
