It started because I wanted to be like my blogsisters and include a photo in this weeks entry. Since I’m the I.T. person at my house – yikes what a frightening thought – I thought I would just monkey around and figure out how to do it.
I thought I’d try a practice run before I actually tried to put a photo in my blog. Of course, then I couldn’t think of any kind of photo to look for. Crochet, I thought finally. I’ll find a photo of hooks or yarn or some finished item. I found a photo on of some Irish crochet which was pretty and actually is featured in Dead Men Don’t Crochet so it was relevant.
There is no point in going through the boring details, but all I was able to do was save the photo to my computer. At the end of this I am going to see if I can move it from there to here.
But reasoning there must be a way to take a photo from a site and plunk it right into a blog, I decided to try a photo from somewhere else.
All I know is I ended up freezing my computer so bad even ctrl alt delete didn’t help. I had to push the on button to shut it down. Luckily no permanent damage. By now I had wasted all my potential blog writing time.
So, here goes. If it works, you’ll see a lacy photo of Irish crochet. If it doesn’t ... I don’t even want to go there.
The photo was supposed to go down here. Having it appear on top takes away all the suspense. I've seen photos in other parts of blogs. How did they get there?
I did notice as I was adding the picture there was something about getting photos from the web which makes me think I was trying to do it backwards. Okay, there's always next week.
