Over the weekend I was checking out Google + which is something I rarely do. However, I thought that if I was going to blog more regularly I should keep up with social media.
I was looking at my own profile and thought the photo albums seemed redundant and deleted a few of them. One of those deleted albums contained all of the photos contained in every post on my blog. I did not know that deleting the album from Google+ would remove the photos from my blog.
Do you understand? All of the photos in my blog, every single one, was gone.
I'd like to say I've been working since Sunday to replace these photos. But honestly, everytime I log on, I add a few, then become discouraged. It's over two years of photos...carefully thought out to accompany each post...
I am especially upset because the page that contains stories about inspiring women that I was currating from guest bloggers (Wednesday's Woman) now looks like this:
On top of that there's the cold weather, my lack luster dedication to my New Year's resolutions, the cold weather...the cold weather...the cold weather.
This week's Twisted Mixtape theme is timely. In two words, the theme is "happy songs." I need them right about now. I will be listening to all of them linked up over at Jen's for the Twisted Mixtape bloghop. If you need a lift in spirits, you should too.
Liner Notes on my "Happy Songs": These songs' themes may or may not be happiness. When I hear them they make me happy. I hope they do the same for you.
