It seems as though this problem really is a glitch and they are aware of it. Hopefully my blog will be back up and running soon.
Also, one person commented and said that you can upload your pictures into Flickr!, copy and paste the HTML into your blog and it will work that way. I'm in the process of joining Flickr! so maybe I'll have a real post up soon!
