Lost Pictures: So Weak And Tired

If Anyone told me I could break down and cry because of our recipes, I 'd have called him a liar. I never knew I had become so attached to them. Last week. I discovered the beach coconut rice pics were not there. I was  shocked and had to go get them from a site I had earlier warned for putting up my recipe without a link back.

Then I discovered Ahdaisy's red velvet cake pics were not there. I had to go check  and realized 
that these were published around the same time.  It felt uncomfortable, I decided to check all the recipes posted around that time...(Late January to February 13) All the step by step cooking pics are not there. Could I have deleted that folder without knowing? One badt thing with Google I learnt is that when one is deleted, it disappears even from the Picasa album and google drive.

Some of those recipes were not even by me, posters' efforts. Never thought losing a blog post could be this hurting. Wish I listened to those of us who kept suggesting that I put everything in print (Recipe book). I don't know how and when I deleted that folder. I'm sorry about those of us who posted recipes within that time, sorry about your step by step pics.

Now, for  website owners using wives Connection pics without permission or even a link back to wives connection, please clap for yourselves. Now that they are deleted what will you do? If you don't know, ask anyone that has ever taken step by step pictures while cooking... We'll tell you how easy it is. 

Dear affected website owners, please don't let us do Apple And Samsung Wahala with you o. I beg you. Put original stuff and not stolen intellectual property abeg o. See how you are making me talk when in a bad mood and I know this is wrong. I can just say anything now cos I'm sad. Beware o. You can use stuff from wives connection but be humble enough to ask for permission. This morning now, a very well renowned Naija website posted my breakfast idea on Facebook without a link or permission. I tire o.

I think I need some  time to think and meditate. The lord is my strength.
 I am so weak!!!

    Wow, I am so sorry. I don't know if it will help, but try saving the posts as Draft before publishing... it may always remain in the Draft folder. sorry!

  6. For those malicious bloggers, try and start adding watermarks to your pictures before posting, then try and save your posts as drafts just like someone said. I think 'Evernote Food' is also a good tool here for your food recipes. You can download the android or IOS app here https://evernote.com/food/

    1. Thank you Jay, I checked on the link and will try that too. Watermark is the best for now I think. I pray I find a way to do it faster cos the last time I tried, it was taking too long and I had to stop and publish new posts.
      Have a sweet nights' rest.

  9. So sorry about the loss of your pics. You remember the same thing happened to me sometime ago. Google reps even told me i couldn't retrieve my pics once it is gone. i had to Redo most of them (Still redoing sef). All the pictures in my draft were deleted too so i guess that's a bad idea. I also had to get an external backup for all my files. You can also use "dropbox" for safe storage online incase the backup drive starts giving wahala also.

    1. Thanks Dobby, when I saw those posts, my mind went first to you and I remembered you saying once one is deleted, everything is gone. Now I know better o. I may not do the draft saving thing and I pray for the strength to put them on hard copy in the nearest future.
      Sleep with your Guardian Angels surrounding you.

  10. Aunty Eya, I'm so sorry about this.
    This experience will make you stronger.

    Like others have said, please going forward, you MUST back up your posts and add your watermarks to the pictures.

  14. Too many typos. What do you expect? Typing with one eye open and the other in deep sleep. Let me go to bed now.
    Good night all.

  15. Yeeeeeeee e don happen! Where have I been?? If u see as my heart skipped on top ds missing pics geeeezz!!! Aunty Eyaaaaa *Sobbing* shebi I said we should do recipe book, dese things must not disappear oo! Ahh!

    I dunno why I just felt paranoid about loosing all these recipes, maybe cos of how precious they are to me abeg o! Praise God! Its not so bad .. What a relief!

    Now for reals, no jokes, am finking we should find some kind of back up for everything, maybe like dem cloud back up for files or something, or get an external hard drive and save them all, am not that tech savvy I dunno... I'll try and find out.. Cos this is some serious warning that we should be careful, reminds me of how I deleted my dissertation by mistake without backing it up somewhere else about 5000 words to the end was the last time I saved and I had a short time to submit.. Really horrible experience,I cringe at the thot of it, maybe its what heightened this my paranoia of losing documents and stuffs like this and learning to back up as often as possible cos u just never know.

    It is well, plenty hugs.. Totally feel u on this.. Am even more disturbed than u loool 100% sure about that at least I've been be4 ds happened xD ...Cheers.
