With the new month calling for a change of header image, I sat down to upload one this morning and got this message:
I guess I knew somewhere in the back of my head that Blogger has a "photo upload quota," but if I did know it, I never gave it a second thought. I'm just glad this didn't happen a day earlier, after I had painstakingly selected 11 photos out of 300-plus possibilities for yesterday's post.
The good news is there are plenty of free photo-hosting sites online, and it's only $5 a year to get 20 GB more photo storage from Google. I decided to go with the latter option; it's worth a cent and a half a day to me to keep all my photos together. Once I'd paid my $5, it was only a matter of minutes until I was able to upload the new image as easily as ever.
It took nearly six years of blogging to reach my free photo upload quota, so I'm grateful for all the free storage space I've had up until now. In fact, I'm grateful to Blogger in general for its free-ness and its customizable templates and all that it does to support those of us who like to spill our guts on the Internet.
Now that I'm thinking about it, I wish I'd published a few more photos a couple weeks sooner. All this gratitude would have made for a good Thanksgiving post.
