I have two blogs with Google Blogger. I posted to my other blog on Wednesday and to this blog on Thursday. Everything is as it should be for the other blog. For this one, however, all of the picture from 1/1/2012 and prior to the 3/31/2016 post I had added are gone. All the posts and comments are still there – just not the pictures that went with them.
What I’ve learned is apparently Google stored blog photos that are uploaded to Blogger on their Picasa server. Now that they are letting go of Picasa in favor of Google.Photo, images are being moved. Looks like this process will run through May.
The good news is that I found my missing images. The bad news is they were moved to Google.Photo trash. Thankfully, I was able to retrieve them from there before they were permanently deleted. They’re still are not added back into my blogs. I’m not sure what the fate will be when all is said and done.
And it gets worse…it’s now happening to my other blog. And I am not alone in this mess. It’s happening to other Blogger blog owners too. Thankfully, Google is actively working on the problem.
In the meantime, I need to muster up some patience and hope for the best.
