Technical Difficulties

It would seem the issue of technical malfunctions has now visited me.  I'm having trouble posting, and it would seem that I've reached my maximum photo storage.  I'm contemplating shelling out $30 a year if it means that I can continue to interact, and enjoy this little hobby of mine.

If you have any experiences and / or suggestions - do share! I'll make my decision (option 1: pay it  or option 2: move to wordpress) within the next 24 hours.

  1. I have my own domain, and I moved to WordPress a couple years ago. (You don't have to have you own domain to use WordPress of course.) Anyway, I've been very happy with it because it's easy to use and very customizable. Of course it might be easier to just stay where you are. Just if you do go to WordPress, I think you'll probably like it.

    1. Thanks, Rachel! I know that WordPress has a lot of good features, and when I'm ready to move - I think that's where I'll head!

  2. If you want to stay with Blogger, just make a Google+ profile. Upload your pictures to that profile and from there you can add them to posts. It's unlimited storage space that way.

    I also highly recommend Tumblr. It's got unlimited space and so many great features. :)

    1. Thanks, Molly! I will check out Google+ as I don't have a profile. I do like your Tumblr page, it's pretty great!

  3. I agree with Miss Rachel, I've been very happy with how customizable Wordpress is. Google+ is a good idea too! Isn't it crazy how quickly it runs out?!

    Tumblr is also great but it isn't very interactive. I usually just use it to post pics. Can't wait to see what you go with :)

  4. It seems everyone has been having the same problem recently. Abby Bean is having problems with Google+ on top of all that. I got around it by uploading the photos on to photobucket (I'm sure you could do the same with flickr or shutterfly or something similar) and uploading the pictures via URL. It's an extra step, but I'd rather that than have to set up a new blog or pay. Not that 30/year is a ton of money of course...

    1. Thanks, Maud! I hadn't thought of a photo based site - I will definitely be checking it out! I agree with an extra step, rather than a blog move - at least for the time being.
