Celebration


_20170912_100223

Hi everyone!
I couldn’t believe five whole years have gone by since I started this blog.
Forgive my absence.
Lately I have been having computer issues and couldn’t keep you updated with my work, the exhibition, my photography…
But I promise to start posting again as soon as it’s all fixed.
Only then will I feel entitled to fully celebrate this milestone πŸ™‚
Best of luck to all my faithful followers and visitors and best wishes for a safe and warm winter!

A labour of love


The love knot-1-a

Today I took the afternoon off.
Painting set aside I dedicated it to the updating of my sidebar.
My bloggers had that professional & polished look to theirs. I used to wonder how they managed it so beautifully.
As a firm believer of “there’s a right time for everything” I took the plunge & discovered a whole range of widget facilities that were relatively easy to work out. With luck I managed to insert in a few hours, the ones that were a priority to me.
Among them, inserting the links of my followers.
At the end of it I felt as if I had climbed Mount Everest & was ready to shout at the top of my lungs, Eureka!
Check it out, I am curious to know your opinion.
Do you think it adds a lot to the quality of a blog as I did?

Blog restoration update


Taking on yourself too much

This morning I woke up with a feeling of dread knowing I finally had to face the daunting task of restoring 400 posts with each one containing one to eleven photos!
I kept talking myself into taking it by category or even by post so as not to get discouraged & procrastinate as a result…
I finally grabbed the sliver of courage I had by some miracle, held fast on to it and started tackling the last few posts of the poetry category & decided to go on working (for how long it takes) until it’s completed.
Then I decided that if 99% of the photos have vanished I might as well start from scratch & bring down the pixels to all of them & just maybe I will have saved myself the trouble to have to create a new oawritingspoemspaintings2!There is a silver lining after all πŸ™‚

So, I cleaned up my media once again (!) to start afresh. All in all I was busy six hours on the blog & decided (when my head felt squeezed in a vise) to stop after giving you an update.

I’ll try my best to go on liking but if I don’t manage due to the long hours of work on this blog, my sincere apologies to all my supportive & faithful followers πŸ™‚
I consider this as the Resurrection of my blog and its rebirth will be thanks to your patience. Once again a big thank you to you all!

Photo disappearing problem solved!


Blogger at work

Hi everyone!

I wanted to thank everyone who reacted and responded to my desperate
cry for help, I really thought it was going to get only worse πŸ™‚

I then checked with wordpress support on the advice of a blogger and
this is the answer I got:

raincoaster replied to a forum topic that you subscribe to

in response to the topic “photos disappearing from my posts”:

You could have just waited this out. Typically when it happens (it has happened four times that I recall in my six years of being here) the problem is caused by an issue at one of the server facilities hosting the images, and they return after a few hours, once the problem has been fixed.

Thanks Raincoaster!

What a relief! All is well that ends well πŸ™‚

HELP! MY PHOTOS ARE DISAPEARING FROM MY OLDER POSTS!


Help!

I was scrolling down my posts and to my horror, I saw quite a lot of photos have disappeared
from the older posts ( from the older media system )

After I have spent grueling days of sometimes, 15 hours work, I don’t have the energy to put another load
of hours to insert them again.

Does anyone have a secret wand to solve this problem?

Problem nearly solved :)


Encouragement, feedback, support

Encouragement, feedback, support

Well, the good side of this story is, that I got so much support from my fellow bloggers that I’d like to thank them in this post for their kind and patient instructions to the new system I still am having slight problems with. ( My 1st photo enlarges but the others go to a restricted area )

I would like to thank, Lizziejoy10 for her constant support since my first steps into the blog world.
Gabi coatsworth for her kind instructions and last but not least, Alice for her equally kind guidance.
Without your support, I would’ve had a much more complicated and harder time!
Thanks again πŸ™‚

Did it again!! All the poetry category updated with photos! Fourteen hour marathon :)


Exhausted blogger!

Exhausted blogger!

This is how I look tonight! I wanted to finish the blog update in order to start the real thing, as painting, writing…
I put everything on hold and, believe it or not, it happened.
I never realized how many poems I had posted…
As I started to work, this morning, I thought it would be as simple as when I edited the writing category. Boy,
was I in for a surprise!
It’s a totally different system, with its own set of rules. The layout for poetry is so different that, I had
to get used to the dimensions, spaces… I thought I was going to lose it, but then, I started slowly to get the
hang of it and it didn’t appear to be torture anymore πŸ™‚
In my young blogging days, I first wrote the poem in french then posted
its translation in a following one, but then I found it, confusing to the reader ( thinking it hadn’t been translated ) so I started
to put it, in the same post. Please forgive my previous lack of experience.
Let me know how this new category compares to the old version.
