ok, so i went to the blogger help site and looked for problems with the pics uploading.....this is what i found:
"Tuesday, July 25, 2006
Some users are noticing problems with photo uploading timing out or taking a very long time to respond. We're looking into this and will post an update when there is more information." http://status.blogger.com/
now, this is a big problem especially with blogs like mine where a big part of the blog revolves around pics....there have been other issues that have come up after this particular one that have already been resolved....i'm starting to get a little impatient....for now, i'll just take a deep breath, and count to ten, and hope my head doesn't explode!
