All My Blogs Are Up!

It has been almost two weeks that 6 of my blogs are nowhere to be found. I am losing my patience it is because I miss them so much. Good thing that my host provider was able to transfer all my posts under her host, even though I only gave her the files. And good thing I was able to back up my themes oh well except for Mary Anne’s Musings though, I think I got the theme for free, the reason why I wasn’t able to back it up. So My Little Home, Anne’s Sweet Life and Points of View of Travels and Places are all live now. I didn’t post anything new yet since I am adding some plug ins for those blogs. So there, they are now back in business!

2 Blogs Are Up! Thank GOD!

My two main blogs are up, this one My Daily Mumbles and Sahm’s Dining Diary. I woke up with a message in my messenger at 5 in the morning, an update regarding the blogs that went down for a week already. I was relieved when finally I can see them live but I was so worried because when I opened my blogs, my theme was gone and said there is no way that we can add it, the only thing that my host was able to retrieved is the posts.

I nearly contacted the one who created my theme, it has been a while that I wasn’t able to message her but we are still friends in FB. I am about to message her asking if she still have a copy for the theme when I realized to scan my email first and there I saw the backup copy of the theme for these two blogs. Thank GOD, I could not contain my happiness when I saw all the zip files of my theme. I installed it right away to my blogs.

I already have xml files for the following blogs:

My Little Home

Mary Anne’s Musings

Anne’s Sweet Life

Points of View of Travels and Places

I already contacted the host that I will be transferring these blogs to; hopefully she will reply the soonest possible time so I can work these things out before I will go to work tomorrow.

Ways In Posting Picture In Your Self Hosted Blogs

I was devastated to know that Photobucket will not be free anymore. You need to pay them $400 bucks for you to be able to use their codes so you can put it in your blog. Good thing I was able to find a way for me to post a picture.

The first one is through FB, first is view the picture that you want to post in your blog, click copy image and then post it directly to your blog and that’s it.

The 2nd one is through blogspot. Upload the picture you want to post in your blog. After you uploaded the picture, click the html, then check the code, and copy from img to width depends on the number given /> paste it in your blog post.

The 3rd one is through FB again, view the picture, right click the picture and then click the copy image address. Click the add media in your blog, click insert from URL, paste the copy image address and click the insert into post.

There you have it; I hope you will find this helpful for pictures to be posted in your blog without sacrificing the bandwidth of your hosting.

Photobucket 500

I was so surprised one day when view my blogs, pictures were nowhere to be found. I even asked my hosting provider if that is something to do with them but she said it’s not; it could be the photobucket itself. I tried to wait for days, I thought there is just something wrong with the site the reason why it got busted but nope the site is really obliging us to pay for the pictures we posted on their site for the whole year and you know how much? I heard it was roughly 400 bucks. I was shocked, I could not pay that much, I mean not now that I am not working at all. So I tried to check some ways so I can retrieve all the pictures and I was able to find a way.

Yes, first thing you should do is to download all the pictures, and it should be right now, because you might not be able to view all the pictures again and thus you will have no any chance to insert the pictures back in your blog.

I know to those who are depending in photobucket for the codes are worried. I mean that was at least I felt when I found out that photobucket could not help us anymore, but I guess when you are trying so hard to find a way, you can find a solution and I will share it with you guys for my next post. So watch out for it.
