It may surprise you to learn that Bossy recently changed her blog’s design, where surprise equals Tah-dah, Bossy finally stopped talking about her redesign!
And when Bossy changed her blog’s design, she also changed her blog’s host, and blah blah about host and server and domains blah, except this is what it means to Bossy: for the nearly three years Bossy has been blogging, which feels more like 26,280 hours, Bossy has been featuring lots of photos in her posts, where lots of photos equals Good gah if this woman could actually write she wouldn’t need to draw arrows across one thousand pictures.
And every time Bossy uses a photo in a blog post, that photo must be stored somewhere online because djjdjkle ekkroo0rk skkeo. Understand? And so for nearly three years Bossy was downloading and storing these blog post photos on TypePad, which was her blog host and Hi Bossy’s friend Bobo! Bossy knows you are the only one still reading, even if your eyes will stay crossed forever if you keep making that face.
Anyway. When Bossy changed her blog host to WordPress, she needed to find a new place to store all of those archived photos that appear in her posts AND BOSSY PROMISES IF YOU JUST KEEP READING SHE’LL BECOME HILARIOUS AND MAYBE EVEN DRAW AN ARROW OR TWO.
So Bossy decided to transfer her blog’s photos to Flickr where they will be stored, which includes every photo that ever appeared in 26,280 hours’ worth of blog posts.
Unless you are currently so appalled that you swallowed your molars, chances are you don’t know what’s so bad about transferring 26,280 hours’ worth of photos — and so now Bossy will show you how bad it is because who is Bossy if not helping you avoid more attractive tasks, like peeling the calluses from your heel.
Shall we begin?
First Bossy combs her way down the archives, locating the next post whose photos are currently showing up as question marks because they need to be transferred to Flickr:
So then Bossy sees the date of the post, and she goes into her desktop files to locate the post chronologically in her, anyone? Anyone? Files:
So then she opens up her Flickr page and prepares to select Upload Photos and Videos:
Bosy Bossy must tell Flickr where that photo is stored on her computer so it can be downloaded:
Once the photo is selected and downloaded,
Bussy Bossy must open that photo in Flickr so she can copy and paste the photo’s new flickr URL into her post, where URL is the sound of the foam emerging from between Bossy’s clenched teeth:
Bossy then needs to open her post’s page so she can paste this new URL HTML vkkdkdkkska into her anyone? Anyone? Post:
Boosy Bossy is almost done, but first she needs to add a few tags to her archived blog post, because tags ckkdkkd jhwyierjmkd sjks:
For those of you keeping score at home, that’s seven steps—and usually Bossy’s posts contain way more than one photo because see previous paragraph about shortage of writing skills.
And this, dear Bobo and anyone else now deserving of a Readership Award, is what today’s Ten-Word Challenge is all about. In exactly ten words, can you tell Bossy about a detail in your life that makes you deserving of a Pity Party?
And make sure you check back later today for the Pity Partiest comments on the web!

After two weeks of taking care of my sick family I am now sick. I am reasonably sure no one is going to offer to take care of me.
I assume Bossy knows about the flickr uploader tool that can be downloaded? It would cut a couple of steps out of your very time consuming process. You just go to the subdirectory where your picture is living on your computer and drag and drop the picture into the uploader window. You can upload pictures as a big batch this way and then all you would have to do is spend some time sorting out the URL’s etc but at least the pictures would be in flickr already.
