I managed to write a post and used photos that I had already uploaded....scheduled it for around 10ish Thursday evening....AND.....
it was deleted, lost....stolen!! Who knows!!! It has simply vanished (hey, maybe I'm a magician and didn't realise!!)
Blogger is seriously getting me down....need to find time this weekend to investigate further!
Thanks to everyone for solving suggestions!
I'll keep you posted on progress.
