This is partly an announcement, partly a complaint, but mostly an ask for help.
Maybe someone out there has a solution. You see, I've accidentally deleted all of the photos from my blog for the last 2 1/2 years worth of posts. The ones on the first page have been replaced, but if you look back to any post earlier than October 30th of this year, there are ugly black boxes where my photos used to be.
It all started when I thought I'd be cool and start myself a Google+ page. When I did that, a photo album showed up there with all of my blog photos in it. I didn't want it there, so I deleted it.
Oh, BAD MOVE! With the patient help of my daughter, we concluded that it was the album where all of my blog photos were hosted. So, when I deleted the album it left nothing for my blog to reference, and the result is black holes all over the place. Like this. The post is sort of hilarious without photos.
Thanks to Marsha (Pandula Arts Creations) for sending me an e-mail and alerting me that there was a problem.
Does anyone have any idea about how to recover a deleted Picasa Web Album? I've posted the question in the Google help forums. Although, I did send a message to Google, they tell you that they do not respond individually to these messages. Ugh!
