Why All the Pictures Are Gone

Well I feel dumb. I was annoyed that on anything linked to my Google account (like my phone and Google Plus) displayed images from Picasa and I had no idea how! “What is Picasa?” “When did I sign up for it?” So I logged in and deleted everything on the account.

“Are you SURE you want to permanently delete these photos?”

I had read a warning from someone on some forum saying don’t click “yes” because in about a week you will realise you made a mistake and need to retrieve them from your trash folder. Of course, I didn’t take this person’s advice.

“Are you SURE you want to permanently delete these photos?”
“Pft, ehm, yeah! I clicked delete didn’t I?”
POOF! All gone.

Well, come to find out, when you upload an image straight to Blogger it is saved in a Picasa Web Album… So… The reason pretty much every single picture going back to February (I think) 2013 is gone is because… I deleted them… If I had listened to the advice on that forum I could just undo it and it would all be back but no… it’s all gone.

So I am not sure what to do. I don’t have back ups of most that stuff and even if I did it would take ages to go back and repost the pictures to over a year’s worth of posts and if I wanted to recreate an image for all those missing post? Forget it! Wow… I feel so dumb… I destroyed all that work… It’s… Depressing…

My blog is totally falling apart and I am not sure if I should put the time and work into restoring it or the time and work into creating a new one… No, I can’t do that, I have to fix this one, too many post going all the way back to my diagnosis. All I know is this blog is going to be under construction for a very long time…
