I Don't Have Any Money to Pay Them Anyway

I was writing a fun and witty post, and went to upload the photo that the WHOLE POST REVOLVED AROUND, and Blogger told me I had reached my free photo storage limit, and would I like to pay money every month to get more storage? Umm, NO THANK YOU. I would like to know why I am still getting this message even though five days ago, when I got it the first time, I spent hours going through 250 (!!!) old posts, sizing the images under the pixel size that supposedly doesn't count toward my total space and deleting other images. So, since I, in essence, am not using ANY of my storage space according to your rules, NO, I would not like to buy more. I would also like to go back in time and be able to post the things I was going to post that required images, like my perfect Thanksgiving post.

UGH. Seriously? So, basically, Google is just trying to find a way to make me have to pay a monthly fee to have my blog, right?

So what do I do?

If you want the details and want to give me actual advice, it says I have a certain amount of free space in Picasa, and every image that I put on my blog (no matter how I get it there) is stored in Picasa, and once I reach the limit, I have to buy more space or delete stuff. I deleted and resized every image on 3/4 of my posts, and waited 24 hours, it let me post that one picture of my girls in their Christmas finery, and now the message is back.

Is it worth the move to wordpress? What say ye? I know nothing of wordpress or html or finding a host, not to mention how I get people to my new blog if they are looking me up using my blogspot address. It's all so scary!! HALP!

  1. I've heard that Wordpress is the cool older sibling to dumb little Blogger. I was thinking about switching over too, so I could give myself that extra bit of street cred. But I'm too lazy to put forth the effort it would take to figure out how to transfer old posts, etc.

  2. Also- I've used Wordpress before. It's super easy, totally user-friendly, and doesn't have all of the glitch problems Blogger does.

  3. I would move my blog to wordpress but thinking of the amount of work required... barf. What if you bought your own domain? I don't know if that makes a difference, but I think it is like $10/year or something? I've been meaning to do that but I've been too lazy.

  4. Do it! Move to wordpress, upload photos for free, and use their redirect option to just redirect people to your website who visit you here!

  5. You could upload your pictures to Flickr and then share them from there - Flickr gives you the source code to just paste into your Blogger window.

  6. I am debating switching to WP too. I HATE the photo limit, and I use WP at work and it's so much more user friendly! If you make the switch you should let me know how it goes :)
