WordPress not allowing me to add pictures?
I’ve been using WordPress for nearly a year and never had this problem, but today I wrote a new post and tried to add some pictures and they won’t show up. If I attempt to insert a picture to the post, it’ll appear in visual edit mode, but not in HTML edit mode or preview. I tried several different pictures to make sure it wasn’t a problem with the image file itself, and I even copied and pasted the entire post into a different draft to see if that would help. No luck. Also, I managed to add a gif with no problems, and I haven’t changed the template or anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The blog I need help with is impendingdawn.wordpress.com.

I’m using Internet Explorer 8. I upgraded it to Explorer 9 to see if that helped, but it didn’t, so I went back to 8 and cleared the browser cache and cookies. All the files are .jpeg, so that’s not the issue. I also read the troubleshooting article before posting on the forum, but none of the points were applicable.
What exactly do you experience?
Example: I click ___ and then ___ happens
I go through the regular actions for adding a picture… Add an image, select files, insert into post. I can resize and everything in visual mode, but the image disappears as soon as I try to preview it or if I go into HTML edit mode. I tried publishing it without previewing anything to see if that would help, but it didn’t.
