11 Aug 2017 Out of picture space on my account – considering options! (that don’t involve paying more money!)

Good morning to you.  It’s 9:11 am on this Friday morning.  I am faced with a dilemma yet again. I’ve run out of picture space for my account here on WordPress and am not sure what I should do about it!  One option is to go through older blogs and delete them and the images that go with them, another just delete the pictures and keep and edit the blogs, yet another idea is to start a new blog and just leave this one open and lastly pay for the premium service each month so I can double the amount of pictures I can store.  Since I am an artist and like to illustrate my messages here with pictures, I am put in a tough spot lol!  I know I could give links to other photo sites and stuff like that but most people trying to read something find that annoying….I do anyways.  I don’t like having to go to a bunch of different places when I am going to a specific place hoping to get everything there.

I am reluctant to delete older posts straight out because there are a lot of people out there like me who do research for things and older posts are useful!  I am unaware of a tool on this site, without having to probably pay extra, that could help me know which posts are the most popular or most often viewed so if I do decide to cull a bunch of stuff, I don’t remove something people actually need to find.  Plus, going through 500+ posts is labor intensive and it’s like moving and packing your own stuff versus hiring a disinterested outside party to do it lol!  Or the struggle I went through trying to type up my journals on the computer.  When you go through your own stuff you get all wrapped up in the memories and it takes way too long to do it!  Someone who doesn’t have any connection to the stuff, whatever it may be, can get through a lot more far more quickly.  UGH!!

I’m leaning towards starting an entirely new blog but we’ll see.  Any suggestions?!

Part of the reason I love Grounding – basically spending time with the earth without shoes – is because of the feeling of connection I get with all the trees and life around me.

  1. I hear you… I have the same problem… it hurts somehow to delete pictures of older posts… they all contain memories and I ponder to go pro before I delete a photo of easy…. ( think I could replace the french economy minister,my decisions are as worse as his, but mine are made by heart lol)… btw: the time you wrote your post is maybe a sign… 9:11

    • Glad I’m not alone on this. I wouldn’t be able to delete pictures of Easy either! Don’t envy you on that. I am still not certain what I want to do. Writing here is important to me and very helpful for me and hopefully anybody else who might need the info/experience. I did not realize the time post – 8/11 at 9/11 lol! Hugs to you all.

  2. It is a dilemma, I agree, one I had a few months ago. After considering all the same options as you, I decided to buy up a level. Like you, I didn’t want to delete photos and like you writing is important to me as are the photos.
    I wish you luck with your decision making! 🙂

    • Thank you Sally. I am considering upgrade too. Just wish since I had to pay for domain name that extra picture space was part of that! I remember you dealing with this too – thanks for your input/understanding!
