Seven years and about 1,500 posts and it finally happened….I ran out of free space on WordPress. Like a dunce I couldn’t figure out why my posts and media was failing to upload…..for like two whole days.
This blog has been a source of therapy, community, and joy over the years. And I’m not about to quit now. So I ponied up and paid for extra space and my own domain. Now I’m an accountant and not an IT person (that’s my hubby) so pardon me if my blog has a few kinks in the next weeks.
I think in celebration of this milestone I want to have a giveaway. What sounds better….a free pattern on Ravelry or some yarn from my yarn cave?
Yaaaaaarn! Please :p
I’m at 70% of my media storage and dreading the day it runs out. Not enough to have a clear out or anything, just enough to stress now and then.
Hah! This happened to me a few years ago. Initially, I started by dumping extra photos that I didn’t think I needed anymore. But, that was a lot of work and didn’t help for long! So, I had to pony up as well. I don’t regret it! Congrats, I think? Haha!
I haven’t a clue where to look to see space available. Good to hear you aren’t leaving us! 🙂
Congratulations! Yarn is better than patterns, as we are all yarn hoarders at heart.
Congrats! 🙂 That’s a huge milestone!
Congratulations! I recently went paid too – ran out of photo room. Worth it!
I have this same problem. I have deleted a lot of photos from years ago, and I know I could get on and resize the ones that are left, but that feels like so much work. I haven’t looked into the cost of my own domain. Is it reasonable? I hate to face the eyeroll that will come when I say my little blog will now cost money… 🥴
It’s not bad in my opinion, $5 a month. But sneaky WordPress tried to nudge me towards a business subscription. I don’t need that and the personal subscription was much more reasonable.
That’s good info! I am going to have to do it eventually, I suppose.
