HELP!!! BLOGGER is trying to control me!!

I need HELP...blogger is REALLY making me MAD...and I don't like being mad! Now...I'm going to be really embarrassed if I find out this is caused by something I did...but I need to know. Does anyone know why....when I go to the Dashboard to on "new post" and when I arrive at new post screen...the header between the "title" and the actual body of the post is KNOW the one that lets you click on it and POST pictures, check your spelling and allows you to add links, not to mention "Preview" your post before actually posting it!!! It is MISSING...IT IS MIA...I can't seem to figure out WHY??? So maybe one of you genius computer types out there can help...NOW for days Mr. Blogger would not even let me POST...I would click on dashboard...and it would just do nothing...for hours...honestly...I tried down for hours...defragmenting...dumping files...all that...and still no posting...NOW as you can see...I can post..but have lost the controls to post pictures! AND I MUST BE ABLE TO PSOT PICTURES...I SIMPLY MUST!! you know what might be going on?? PLEASE...Let me know...and please be kind and gentle...I'm a little "challenged" with this sort of thing!

Thanks...I hope to correct this problem soon...with your help!

Oh, I can't even imagine if Mr. Blogger wouldn't let me post photos. I sure wish I could help you, but I don't have a clue why it's not working for you. I hope you find out. I'm sure there's someone out there that can help.

And if I'm not mistaken...isn't it your birthday tomorrow? I think so. (I hope so...since I've "let the cat out of the bag" on my blog!) Happy Happy Birthday sweet friend! I hope you have the best birthday EVER!

Just noticed I typed so fast, I typed my own name wrong. Silly me. It's Kat, not Kaat!!!

Teresa, I haven't had that happen, but maybe Blogger was in the middle of an upgrade or had a techno problem. I don't see anyway you could have caused that to happen. Sometimes I can't upload pics and just have to come back later.

So, is today your birthday? Happy birthday just in case!

I love your blog!

Happy Birthday!

I came over from Kat's blog and wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday. As for blogger, they have scheduled outages over the last two days, maybe they are working on a few bugs and that is why it disappeared. I hope the problem is fixed quickly for you!

Hi Teresa,
Came on over through Justabeachkat to wish you a very Happy Birthday!
Sorry I can't help you on the blogger thingy - it was giving me problems last week so I left it alone for a couple of days and tried again and it worked. GOOD LUCK and have a fabulous birthday!

Susie Q said...

I am so sorry this has happened to you dear heart.

I HAVE had it happen but not lately.

I hope it is behaving for you now.

More soon....

I have no idea why this is happening to you...but I bet it will go away...I have had problems with blogger and they clear up in a day or so......and it seems when I have problems, no one else does!

Happy Birthday!!!!

Blogger is evil! Some days it just picks out people at random to mess with and drive them crazy. Then it just moves on to another person. I figured this out all on my own...what other explanation could there be? It couldn't be us!

Sandi McBride said...

Ok T, try this...when you go into post new blog, look up at the address in the address bar and if you see a 2 at the end before you do delete the 2 and hit enter again...hope that solves the problem!

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio said...

Just wanted to stop by and thank you for your visit and sharing your Grandma S story with me!

I hope Sandi's advice worked for you...

Hi Teresa,

Sorry I missed your birthday. Hope you had a great one. Are you still having trouble with blogger? Not sure if I could help with it. Not posting photos is a real pain. Well, have a great week!

Happy Belated Birthday!
When you go to post look and see if you are in edit HTML instead of compose. I accidently clicked that once when trying to click on add photo icon. I didn't realize the problem for several hair pulling hours!

Kathleen Grace said...

Hi, I came over from Susie Q's blog to wish you a happy birthday! Nice meeting you:>) I wish I could help you with your blogger problem, I've never had that happen so dont know what could cause it. Hope the problem goes away and you have a great birthday:>)

Sandi McBride said...

Okay, now you just kick blogger's butt and get in here and tell us all about your birthday darlin' still a problem? Drat!

smilnsigh said...

Oh you poor Dear! I came over because Susie Q said to wish you a belated Happy Birthday. Which I am doing.

But I find Blogger is driving you crrrazzzzzzy. -sigh- As one who has had her share of Blogger Hissy Fits, and also as a computer-techy-challenged person, I can't help you. But I hope that someone, in the preceeding comments, did.

I'd be lost if Blogger didn't let me post pictures. Nearly all my blogs, are very heavy on pics. And a couple are totally photos! Eeeek!

I wanted to wish a Happy Birthday! May your day be filled with the stuff that lovely memories are made of! :)

I'm afraid I don't know how to fix your Blogger problem. You could email them and ask. They are usually very helpful.
