If you happened to have scrolled through any of my old posts, like a year ago or more, you may have noticed my pictures from those posts are gone!! (And yes, that is more than HALF of my blog.)
I’m feeling quite distressed over this…can’t contact blogger. From every search and attempt I’ve made, it appears that they don’t want to be contacted. 🙂 If you do a google search for “contacting blogger” you will see what I mean. Ugh. I’ve been to their help boards and no one seems to be able to “help” there either.
So…I’ve decided to move my blog over to a wordpress.org blog. (I’m not doing the moving myself, lest you worry that I might blow up the internet!! ha!) It will likely still be a few weeks before the “new” site is ready…moving my stuff to wordpress is a HUGE task. If I wanted to just start a new blog, it would be a lot easier. But I hate to give up everything I’ve written here for the last 7 years, ya know??
My blog address will STILL be www.mercyisnew.com – yay!! So, you will not have any changes to make to read! But, I wanted to let you know that we are working on it. I have no idea what is going to happen with all those pictures and if we can recover them or not. I’m not hopeful.
But, if anyone has any clue as to what has happened or suggestions for me, I would LOVE to hear from you!!
I have never gotten a notification that my blogger account is full. I can still upload NEW pictures…it is just the OLD pictures disappearing?!!? Boo.
I’ve lost pictures on random old posts but not on years’ worth. Eeeek! This totally freaks me out. Good luck on the move! Who is helping you do it?

Sarah, I have a friend in the web design and hosting business. I will post all his info and links for him when the new site goes up…I think I’m also going to start sharing blogger warnings. 🙁 I can’t figure out any other way this has happened other than blogger just going bonkers or something!

Oh Candace! I’m so sorry; that is just horrible! I think I would be in tears if it happened to me! Did you back any of your content up onto your computer?
I’ve been blogging on blogger for a little over a year now and I’ve been thinking a lot lately about switching to WordPress. I think I will in the near future.
I hope the transition goes smoothly and that you can somehow find your old content!
I had to switch over to WordPress a few months ago because every time I signed in to blogger, my blog wouldn’t show on the dashboard. I haven’t had any issues with WordPress so far. I hope your transition goes smoothly.

I’m so sorry to hear that!! That is just horrible. I hope they reappear as you’re transitioning the blog. And thanks for the heads up!
