Having Issues with Blogger's Photo Uploader

Hi everyone!  Just a quick update, once again.  I tried to do a post this morning and the Blogger photo uploader wouldn't work.  I could upload my pics to the tool itself, but when I clicked "Add selected", everything went blank but didn't transfer to my post.  I tried it again, and the second time it simply unselected my pics when I clicked "Add selected".  I tried switching from Internet Explorer to Google Chrome and it still had the same problem.  I am at a complete loss as to what else I can try.

Is anyone else having this problem?  There are blogs I'm following that did new posts with pics today, so obviously not everyone is dealing with this issue.

I'm trying not to panic here.  Without photos, my blog is nearly pointless.  So much of what I do involves taking photos.  I'm hoping and praying that they get this problem solved soon!

So, if I don't do any exciting posts for a while, you'll know why.  It's so frustrating...I had several posts I was going to do today, but they are useless without the photos to go with them.

I would like to take a moment to say thanks to my 81 FOLLOWERS!!!!  Wow!  Just 19 more followers and I'll be up to my goal of 100.  Thank you to all of you who have read and followed my blog.  I'm also amazed that I'm getting close to 31,000 page views.  That's just incredible!

Have any of you ever checked you "Stats" section on your blogs?  You might want to.  I found out that I have readers from countries all over the world!  I never dreamed that my little blog would find its way to places like India, Poland, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, and more!  I'm truly honored and wanted to thank all of my readers from different countries who have stopped by to take a look. :)

Well, I'll let you all know as soon as I'm able to post photos again.  Lord willing, this will be a short-lived problem.

Thanks Phoebe.

I'm sorry you're having the same problem. I know you love using pics too. :( Hopefully Blogger will be able to solve things soon.

Seems like everybody had problems with comments too. I haven't had a problem....yet. Anyway, I just looked at a bunch of your older posts, and I REALLY want to do a downy dunk to my barbies. :)

Yup! I shut down completely. Then I started over with the photos first. That time it worked. I think it was my timing, rather than my technique. :)

Thanks for commenting, gals.

Glad you haven't had any problems yet, Elliebob. Hopefully it stays that way! :)

Thanks for the tip, AuntLou. Even if it was your timing, I may still try your technique and see what happens. ;)

Hooray!! Just tried uploading again on my personal blog and the photo uploader is working again!! I didn't even have to shut the computer down first. :D

Well, I feel silly. I've been going through Google Analytics to look at my statistics and never noticed the Stats tab! Thanks for the tip!

I used to have blogger issues ALL the time. Now I use Windows Live Writer to do my blog posts because it makes adding photos very easy and has a watermark feature, fonts, and other fun tricks. You can even make draft posts to save for later dates.

It's a free download. Just do a google search and I'm sure you will find it. It has made blogging fun & so much easier for me.

Hi gals! Thanks for your comments.

Casey, the thanks should really go to hubby. He was checking over my account a while back and clicked on the stats page. I'd never even looked at it. ;) Glad to help, though.

Bama, thanks for the tip! I've never really been impressed with Blogger's posting tools. I will definitely look into it. :)
