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.
