{ A Blogging What Not To Do! }

Some of you may have noticed a while back, that my blog had black/white exclamation points in the place where my pictures should have been, there's a reason for that. 

And I'm here to tell you 
what not to do...

So, it all started with me getting a new cell phone. 
Easy enough right?
So after my cell company transferred all my pictures and contacts/stuff. 
I decided to "clean house" and get rid of pictures that I really didn't need on my phone. I mean, I didn't do anything with them on my old smart phone. 
Why bother keeping them on my new, clean, crisp one.....
This is what I saw on my phone, then i got all delete happy...
So, I'm deleting (blog) pictures off my phone (insert joyful whistling here) I mean why not, they are on my blog I don't really need them on my phone. 
Fast forward a few hours.... 
and this is what I see in place of everything picture on my blog
Pretty aren't they? 
Did I puke? Cry?

Moral of the story
Yes, Rachel your gmail account is attached to your blog "everything" on your phone. (did I think of that at the time)
If you delete the pictures that you see on your phone that are currently on your blog. 
They no longer will be there.... 

Just leave them alone. 
Don't touch them.
Just smile and walk away. 

I'll give you one guess as to what I do in my "sparest of spare" time now-a-days.
Yes, that's right. 
I reload every stinking picture that was on my blog from
Yes, it deleted everything. 
 All of my hundreds of pictures, to all my side bar gadgets as well as my paper & header.

And if you're wondering, I did check my online picasa web album.
It was empty.

( hard )Lesson Learned.

Edited to add:
If you happen to come across one of my blog posts with the cursed black box, don't worry. I'll get to it soon enough. 

But if you really, really need to see the pictures. Just shoot me an email and I'll try to get that post done a little faster.

Thanks to all of you for hanging in there with me, 
while I learn "what not to do" with my phone.
