So I went to make a blog post Sunday, after missing two days in a row, when I hid a kind of a major snag. It seems I have used up all the storage space for photos. I tried to free up space by deleting from my Media Library but quickly discovered that when I delete from the Library, it also deletes from the post it was used in. Crap!
The upshot is that after over ten years of blogging for free, I must finally upgrade and pay for the privilege. My alternative is to return to a picture-less blog, as I had for years before I figured out how to add pictures. I guess a second alternative is to stop blogging altogether, which some would consider no great loss to the blogosphere (I would say, “You know who you are,” but why would such a detractor have read this far?). I reject those alternatives. I like writing a blog and I like including pictures. So here we are.
I see that there are other advantages to this upgrade, but being as tech unsavvy (untechsavvy?), I probably will not know how to use most of them. Additionally, I am not sure I want them all. Subscriber only content? Do I want to be all that exclusive? How do you get subscribers, anyways? These are questions for the future. I am not hung up on answering all questions immediately.
So I guess this is an interim post, till I accomplish the upgrade and get back to blogging with pictures. Well, maybe one more post of words only. There was a topic I wanted to discuss… but that is a post for later today. Or early tomorrow morning. As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.
