Please bear with me. As you’ve gathered, I have had problems trying to upload photos to the blog. This is very serious, because I am heavily reliant upon photos for illustrating the contents.
Yesterday and today I sent ‘feedback’ to Google who now own and operate Blogger.com. Hopefully, they will get back to me with a solution. If a solution isn’t forthcoming, I shall have to consider archiving the blog and starting a new one, perhaps with Wordpress.com.
Such an action would be very regrettable, because I’ve had a lot of satisfaction over several years blogging with Blogger.com and I would like to continue the relationship.
If there are any experienced bloggers who may be able to help, I would very much appreciate it. The only official course of action is to ask questions at the Blogger Forum. There are no phone lines, texting facilities or email links to Blogger technicians.
Here’s what happens when I attempt uploading a photo:
I go through the normal process of opening a photo to the Blogger platform; then a pop-up appears at the bottom of the computer screen with the words, ‘Do you want to open or save resumable (1.56 KB) from www.blogger.com?’ I then have the option of clicking: ‘Open’, ‘Save’, ‘Save as’, or ‘Open’. Whatever option I choose, it makes no difference – nothing happens.
Where a thumbnail of the photo to be uploaded normally appears, there is a blank square with a small cross in the bottom right-hand corner. The cross indicates a failed attempt at uploading. If I click the cross, a pop-up appears with the words, ‘Lost connection to server’.
My URL is http://bills-log.blogspot.com and my browser is Windows Internet Explorer 9 - the very latest version, fully updated.

My Regards to all,
