Titus 2 Tuesday - Photobucket Wisdom


What have learned from another woman this week? (or ever)

Write your own "Titus 2 Post" (linking back here somewhere within the body of your post) and enter your link below!

You may have noticed that I had a bit of a "blog issue" yesterday...

I am hoping to have time later today to do a "real" Titus 2 Post; but I will quickly share a bit of wisdom I gleaned yesterday right here in the blog world.

I paid someone to do my blog design because I am just learning all of this HTML code - Photobucket "stuff." What I hadn't realized is that my background colors, column colors, header picture, etc. were all linked to her Photobucket account. She had a billing issue that resulted in hundreds of us bloggers having that lovely Photobucket message plastered across our blog. She is human. Made a simple error. I completely understand and offer grace to her. I'm still in awe that she knows how to do it all in the first place.

So what I have learned from all of this is that IF you have someone else design your blog for you; have them utilize YOUR Photobucket account for all of your design pieces.

There are several awesomely talented people out there who offer blog designs that you can use for free...you may also want to be aware that some of them will be linking the HTML code to personal Photobucket accounts as well.

I also wanted share a website with you that enables you to print your blog into a "book." You can click here to check it out. I was planning to do this on my one year blogging anniversary; but I may do it sooner!

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Philippians 4:6 He even cares about our blogs!!

Many Blessings! I look forward to reading your Titus 2 Posts!

Sista, I totally hear you! I am completely clueless when it comes to codes. I just created my photobucket account Friday after a blog buddy created a tag for my blog! And I've YET to figure out how to create code for it!?!?! EEK!!! Thanks for your insight!!

You make my day girl!!!!!!I love the idea of putting my blog into book form. Thanks for sharing that. What day in July do you want a guest post for? Let me know.

So glad you are up and running today. I think I tried half a dozen times yesterday to get to your blog...oh well.

I am clueless when it comes to techy stuff on my blog too. Thank heavens some really nice people have held my hand and helped me. The book idea is on my to do list. I definitely want to do that for my one year!

I was so sorry to hear about your mom passing away with breast cancer. I'm sure that you really keep an eye on that for yourself now. I just hate cancer. It is such a thief. Thanks for all of your great comments Shanda. I love hearing from you.

Thanks so much, Shanda, for your research and information. And, I love the link you included! I've bookmarked your post for future reference.

Have a glorious day in Him! :-)

OH, mercy, I am not gifted in this regard. And so admire/try not to be jealous of those who are. Thanks for the tips, especially about the blog-to-book link.
