Photos, Deleted From Your Phone, May Vanish From Your Blog

We see some blog owners reporting loss of photos, when used in their blogs, and added using Post Editor.

Some blog owners take photos using their camera / phone, upload them to Google+ Photos, and publish their blog posts. Having published their post, they remove the photos from their phones, to save storage space.

And once deleted from their cameras / phones, their photos vanish from their blog.

Cameras and phones, which automatically synchronise with Google+, also synchronise deletions.

When a photo is deleted from a camera / phone, and the camera / phone is set to synchronise with Google. the photo will also be deleted from the Google+ Photos / Picasa photo library. And being deleted from Google+ Photos / Picasa, the photo will cease being visible, when the blog is displayed.

If you wish to synchronise your camera / phone with Blogger / Google+ / Picasa, you should ensure that you treat camera / phone photo storage as permanent - not temporary - for photos used in your blog.

You can delete unused photos. with the understanding that what is deleted from your camera / phone will also be deleted from Blogger / Google+ / Picasa. Photos used in your blog, however, must remain on your camera / phone, to remain in Google+ / Picasa, and display on your blog.

Alternately, disable automatic photo synchronisation, upload photos manually, and maintain all photo libraries separately.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
