Another blog list question... same one really.

Hmmmm. Seems I had to add both words and the pic for it to fix. Strange. Sometimes blogger confounds me... or maybe it's just all the cold meds I'm on trying to kick this colds butt before it kicks mone. lol! Thanks friends!!!!

Edited in blogger to add this pic of my birthday goodies to see if it works...

From the other day
"I have a question. Why do some blogs in the “blogs your following” on your blog have thumbnails and some do not? Look over there to the right. See how in my blog list some blogs don’t have a pic. Why? My own blog is one that doesn't have a pic even when there are multiple pics in my post. I want it to have a pic. Anyone know how to change that? Thanks! Until next time… Carmen and the Primcats

Edited to add:

Thanks ladies! It is because I use Windows Live writter! And I had no idea that's why! I'll edit it in blogger from now on so my pic shows up! THANKS!!!!! "

Reguarding the post above... I thought I had been given the answer. The problem of my pic not showing up is because I was publishing using Live Writer. True. I thought the answer was that I just needed to go back into blogger and make any change to edit and then hit publish and it would show up.

I did that this morning. I published the Bday post from live writer, then went into blogger, added a word and hit publish to edit it. My pic is still not showing. :( And as you can see in my Birthday post there are about 20 pics.

Any suggestions?

I don't use Blogger so I don't know what the problem is. The only thing I can think of from reading your post is... have you tried posting from Blogger with pics (not using the writer) and see if it works? If it doesn't then maybe it's a glitch in Blogger. I don't see why it wouldn't work whether you use Blogger or the writer though.

I have no idea!
I just do mine through blogger & it goes?

Hey Birthday girl, you better be celebrating instead of worrying about your pics!LOL

Remember Happy Birthday!

Here's a couple posts about it in the help forum for Blogger. Read each one before doing anything. From what I have read, people have had this problem since 2009. It's definitely not just you. :)

Well now isn't that confusing! It worked for me after I read Tammy's comment, wonder why it didn't work for you?? This blogging thing sure can be funny at times, huh? Did you add the pic to the very top of the post when you went to blogger?

Hummm Carmen, I don't know.
When I do it, it works.
I publish from Live writter, then go into blogger and hit edit post.
Up at the top you will see the little button for posting a photo(add image) or video and someother options.
Click on the picture/ add image one.
This will bring up a pop up box. Click brouse and select photo.
Then click at the blottom "upload image".
It will then say, Loading. Then it will say, Your image has been added.
Click Done. And it should be there.
This will load the photo to the very top of your post. This is the photo that will be shown in the blog list.
Hope this works.
If it still wont... then I have no idea. ;)

Carmen...ok try this only do blogger nothing else...or other wise I be confused...like now!
I think you are making it more complicated then it needs to be?

ok try this when you sit down to do a post hit "New Post" at the top in the right hand corner of your blog...this will take you to a place to write out your post. Write your title, your post ...you can change font, color, size even do spell check. Ok you will see the word "LINK" and then a thing that looks like a photo of a mountain, or something hit that when you want to download a pic..."insert image" now me I have a cable that I run from my camera to my computer and then my pictures go straight into "pictures" on my computer (are you still with me, that's a little confusing sounding, I know) Ok...so you are in this new pop up screen that says "insert image" I hit "upload" then a little browse box pops up...this now opens another screen that says "pictures" I go in select a photo...you can add as many pics as you want...when it gets DONE downloading then you will see your pic.it should have a blue bow around it go below and hit "add select" It then will go to the screen that you are typing your post in with the pic there...then click on the photo and it should go blue...and a tool box above comes up> small, med. large ...etc here is where you can make your pic different sizes add caption, move right to left, center...whatever!Then when you get done just click back into the white part of the box where you are writing it should go back to normal...When you get finished you can review your post before you actually post it, if you like. When you are ready and all is to your liking hit publish post...you can then go to view blogand your done if you ever need to change anyything it's always stored and you can edit it in your "edit post" I hope this helps...bless your heart I know theses computers can be difficult at time I had to have help with my header...I never thought I would get the stupid thing to work...I just think you are doing to many steps with that live thing I don't even know what that is??? but o well give this a shot and see if it works out for you Good Luck!

I haven't a clue, but I learned some things!
You know, it is confusing alot of the time to me. I have trouble still with posting on APP Tammys' blog. It will not even up the window for me to leave a comment. I did try and leave one recently, I have no idea if it worked because I didn't hear from her. I only have this issue with her blog.
I hope you can get it figured out. I just have a challenging time with anything techy.

someone may have answered your question, I didn't read all the comments.
Do your post in WLR just like always, but then go to blogger and add a picture to the top of your post. That picture will be picked up in the blog rolls. The other pictures are stored differently and blogger doesn't pick them up the same.
I hope you have this figured out. gail
