Little Roman's Toy...

picture is waiting patiently to be displayed on my blog....

I actually had to buy more storage space for my blog ...and it will take 24 hours to be installed! Grrrrrr.

Edited to add: Okay let me explain why this happened to me:

First of all - as I was adding more show photos to another blog I have (www.texassaddlehorse.blogspot.com) I got a pop up saying I was out of storage space. That other blog is used to post many many pictures from horse shows I cover - so that the people who show can get on the blog and take the pictures for their scrap books if they so desire. That blog is almost entirely photos with little to no text.

Each of us is allowed 1 GB (I think that is what it said) of memory for free. The allotted amount is the same "per person"..if you have 1 or 10 blogs...not 1 GB for each blog. Once that is used up, you have to buy more. I bought enough to increase mine to 10. It costs $20.00 per year. You can buy more, but once you buy it, you cannot get a refund..so I thought I would start out small.

Buy more storage space for your blog?? How does that happen? I'm puzzled here. I thought the blogs were free. Is it because of all the pictures or something? Sorry for all the questions. I was just surprised that's all.

I wanted to ask the same question as Neabear .... how are you notified? How often should we expect that to happen? How do you pay?

Now I understand. I thought maybe it was because of so many pictures. I can why because of your covering horse shows. That is way more pictures than most of us post I suppose. Interesting. Thanks for answering so quickly.

I have known from the start that, eventually, with all the pictures we use, we'd have to pay for SOMETHING. That's just common sense when we post so many pics over a period of time. Is there a way to tell how much storage we have left?

Julie, thanks for visiting my blog...love the idea of using costume jewelry for napkin rings!

Love the photo on your blog...worth the wait! I am new to blogging and had no idea the memory would run out and I would have to purchase more space. :(

hi - YES!!!! I have had to buy a lot more space for mine and I noticed that I was running out. It's not expensive, but you do eventually use up all your free space.

hope this helps!!

I never knew that you could use up your blog storage space. So weird! How did you find out and what did you have to do?

Hugs!
