Let's try...an experiment! 
3rd-Apr-2016 05:41 pm
Well, today was another great day of General Conference! President Dieter F. Uchtdorf gave a beautiful talk about the restoring power of the Atonement, and Patrick Kearon gave a powerful talk on helping refugees. The Church even has a website about helping that you can find here. It talks about what the Church has been doing, and lists ways you can serve,too!

And in other news, we're getting really eager to show off our Japan pictures, so we're trying an experiment! Because we already loaded all our pictures to Shutterfly, we thought we'd see about sharing them via that site. So we went there, and they're not real big hyperlinking, but! they let you create a "share site". So we uploaded a sampling of our Japan pictures to see how the sharing thing works. If you're interested in checking them out, go ahead and go here and see if you can look through the pictures. There should be arrows at the top of the picture that you can click forward and backward on. There are comments on most of them, too, and I think you might be able to add a comment directly there, but you might need a Shutterfly account.

Anyway, let us know what you think of this method! If you like it, great! We'll keep doing it! If it doesn't work, or if you need an account and don't want one, or if you hate it for some other reason, let us know, and we'll either upload directly to LJ or see if we can get back into our Photo Bucket account or something.

Today I'm thankful for another wonderful General Conference, experimental ways to share our pictures, having maple sugar candy to look forward to, getting our tax vouchers soon, and finding out that we didn't accidentally throw out the Yato bracelet after all.

Yes, that works. Thanks for sharing, I look forward to see more. I guess you are experimenting with 24 photos first (?). I spotted 3 on the first photo (Noragami, My little monster, and kingdom hearts) and Tokyo mew mew in second. I wonder if I missed anything else in the 1st photo.

Oh, good! We're glad it worked! You're right--we started with just 24, because we didn't want to post a hundred and find out it didn't work. And you guessed right on all the manga! If you missed something, so did we.

I can see the pictures, and I'm looking forward to more! Thanks for sharing. :)

The pictures were great, and I tried to leave a comment: Noragami and My Little Monster, Right?
but the site tried to get me to sign up for Shutterfly, and I'm not doing that!

You forgot about Kingdom Hearts!

Thanks for the note about needing a Shutterfly account to comment. We will take that into consideration.
