Great tip for Blogspot bloggers...

After I mention this...

An angry commenter at the big blog, deeply offended that I would insinuate anything about the sanity of one Christopher Hitchens, accused me of being...

...an "admitted theist."

So true. Now I'm waiting for someone to come after me for being a "thespian," which I'm not, unless you count that one time in senior high.



If you use Blogspot to blog, post images to your blog, and you log in with your Google account, I discovered something cool this past weekend that might help you. Try this:

1. Log in to your blog.

2. Go to the Google main webpage. Make sure you are logged into google as your blogger name (the gmail address will appear at the top right)

3. At the top left, click 'more', 'photos'.

4. You should see, or be able to login/create, a Picasa web album showing every image you've posted to your blog. For those of you who photoshop regularly, this can be a great archival tool. Picasa lumps the images into folders of 500 each.

I hope you find that as helpful as I did. OMG the panties of my past....

    OMG BG you have hit on another Florida election story from the past.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Smathers

    "However, the race is most famous for a speech Smathers never gave.[2] A reporter made up a hoax that Smathers gave a speech to a rural audience using fancy words to create the implication that Pepper was sinister. Smathers reportedly had said, "Are you aware that Claude Pepper is known all over Washington as a shameless extrovert? Not only that, but this man is reliably reported to practice nepotism with his sister-in-law, and he has a sister who was once a thespian in wicked New York. Worst of all, it is an established fact that Mr. Pepper before his marriage habitually practiced celibacy,"[3] While it is sometimes said that Time magazine reported these items, the magazine actually referred to the quote as a "yarn."[4] The leading reporter who actually covered Smathers said he always gave the same hum-drum speech. No Florida newspapers covering the campaign ever reported such remarks contemporaneously. Smathers offered $10,000 to anyone who could prove he said it, and there were no takers before his death.[1][5]"

    Senator Pepper had always treated Samthers as a son. When Smathers turned on him it broke Peppers heart. His never really challenged Smathers during the Senate race and lost by a wide margin.

    Florida politics, same as it ever was.

  2. I'd rather be an "admitted theist" than an "alleged theist."

  5. Don't worry! Lots of girls have "thespian" experiences in high school. I read about it in a magazine. ;o)

  6. Great tip. Thanks.

    Oh NOES! An angry commenter at the big blog? We are Dooooooooooooomed.

    You are also an acknowledged minor deity.

    I carry the Musician label from High School. Okay... BAND GEEK. Still, it made it possible for me to travel with other BAND GEEKS most of whom were pretty normal, liked to have fun and understood the burden of carrying the label.

    Germany, Russia, Italy, PEORIA!
    How many know what it is to play the Brandenburg Concertos at the Brandenburg Gate? (or so I'm told... I was pretty high at the time)

  10. Windyridge try reloading the page in your browser. That happened to one other blogger I know and reloading fixed it. Let me know here or by email bluegalsblog AT gmail if you're still having trouble...

  11. Pictures? On a blog? Why, I never. That could lead one onto a path of thespianic theism, or something.

    ;>)

  12. BG, I also hear that when you went to college you matriculated.

    I feel filthy just being here.

  15. 'matriculated'

    Right there in broad daylight...with an unashamed group of peers.

  16. 'matriculated' hey wait a minute! Does that mean more than once? am I blushing?

  17. Great tip. I've always wondered how to get to that Picasa album. By the way, I love your blog. Please keep blogging because you're one of my favorites!

  18. From one admitted theist to another, cheers!

  20. Smathers was close friends with Richard Nixon while in the House, so as much as Smathers may never have said that he was no peach during that election. Also, don't be ashamed of High School Thespianism.

  21. BTW, that is a very useful tip. I'll also be more careful about multiple copies of the same pic from now on.

I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
