My Life in Twitpics

>> Saturday, March 13, 2010

I decided to peruse the past pics I've taken with my cell phone. It turned out to be quite a stroll through memory lane for me, and thought I'd post some of the more memorable ones for me. Mind you, most of them are not good quality... whatcha gonna get from a cell phone pic is whatcha got...not good quality. It's more for documenting (for me at least) my past two years on TwitPic. Clicking on the pics will take you to the original twitpic location where there are comments on some of them.

Spending 25 minutes chasing a bird that had flown into my home after opening the flue to start a fire. It took me about half an hour to swoosh him out through my porch door.

(This would be the 1st mountain that my niece Alaina had climbed with us. She was excited and wanted to try a high peak the following year.  It ended up being her only mountain she would climb.)

I obviously had hundreds more that I had taken. I didn't realize I have well over 500 pics on there.

Love it!

Twitpic is simply the best / easiest way to share and store photos on the go. I love the fact that you can hotlink the images too. Did you know a big version is available? Change "thumb" to "large" and then get rid of pixel parameters. SWEET!

I periodically go through my files there too, as I take pictures almost every day.

ps ... I am happy you picked that ONE twitpic to have included in your post :-)

Eric - I did just change them to
300 px, but ouch! .. Most are really poor pics! Just an FYI - I had originally started to do an entirely different post when I started this. I will still write about it but this can stand on it's own.

My original thought was about widgets and how some of them are now being discontinued...> to my disappointment. It evolved in this specific post because TwitPic has done away with the App to allow us to post them to our sites, like the one on my top right sidebar, and the one you have on your site.

So while we both have them, if you aren't too sure if you want to keep that app on your site, then just make sure you store a copy of the code somewhere, cause you won't be able to get it again through twitpic's site.

Annnd.... :) Of course I had included my Good Morning Greeting to you here! It would have been nice if I was able to see that, when you first clicked on it to find it was specifically for you. lol

I have seen lots of other "twitpic widgets" around the net. I hope that the feed is never shut down! Being able to post to my blog is the best part of mobile phone photos.
At least it seems to be reliable now ... when twitpic was a new and growing site it seemed to have a lot of server issues. I have actually talked directly with Noah Everett many times. He is quite interesting, and I love that his web service started in his own apartment.

Speedcat Hollydale 6:45 PM, March 14, 2010  

I think they are blurry because the large size is 800 px wide and you must have resied to 300 with html tags??

I am going to peek at your source code - dont worry, I am a doctor

Summit of Mount Jo 9/24/10 A few friends were worried about me. They were worried about me hiking Mount Jo by myself, so I took this video to show how many people were around that day if I needed assistance. I even chatted with several and had a few people share a glass of wine with me at the summit. :) Mount Jo. 9/24/10 After the crowd left This is what the summit looked like... with no people on it. In the previous video I took, I showed all the people who had made this same hike to her summit.
