The Flickr Struggle

The day before yesterday I tried to log into Flickr with my Google account without success. I know it has been giving me the message forever, that soon this will not be a possibility anymore. And I was really good, I immediately tried to link my old Yahoo account to the Flickr account, but it just didn’t want to work. So I gave up and decided to worry about it when I need too. The time to worry about it arrived yesterday.

Luckily I am on leave and had time to play around, stress, cry and curse. Nothing helped, so totally defeated, I turned it into something positive. I logged into my old unused Yahoo account, uploaded all my photos since 2011, all neatly in albums, named and dated, then tried to add all my contacts again, and added bucket loads of groups and by the end of the day, I stepped back, and thought… this was a blessing. I am so organised. Okay I did loose a lot of contacts, but with time I will get there again. I was feeling really accomplished.

This morning I woke up all refreshed and as my custom the past days, I lay all snuggley in bed, going through my Flickr contacts photos (my original account as it never logged out on my phone), when my phone informs me there is an update. I thought oh well, always willing to have the newest software and up to date, no better time than the present. A few minutes later, I was horrified!! With the update, my original Flickr account was signed out. I panicked! It was my ONLY link to my original, much loved account! Stubbornly I tried logging in with my Google account again and (YAY!!!), there was easy prompts to link my original account to a new Yahoo address which I had to create. So just like that, I am the proud owner of not just one but two ACCESSIBLE Flickr accounts! (yeah, don’t ask what I’m going to do with two). Suddenly my yesterday feels a lot less accomplished and I’m back on my messy original account, but so much happier.

    Another gorgeous picture! I’ve always had my flickr and my yahoo account, but the last month or so everytime I log into my flickr it logs me out of my yahoo mail. What an inconvenience! >.< You have to tell me your camera settings some time bc your work is so realistic Lola. SLubs you! xox

      Thank you so much. I make screen shots of my settings and forward them to you. I’m personally not much of a Flickr fan to start with, but with blogging it’s needed, so I’m trying to embrace it.
