too much of a good thing

Well, it happened.  I hit my maximum quota in Blogger photos.  It's time to pick out a larger storage plan.  Before I do that, I have to ask if anyone knows any tricks to uploading photos to Blogger without paying for a larger quota? 

Since you last heard from me, I've been working LATE hours and enjoying my new baby kitty.  I for one am glad it's almost the weekend because I'm craving a late morning in PJs and a cup of coffee.

Hopefully this little ol blog will be back in commission SOON.
Love y'all!

  1. I have heard about a lot of people having probs with their pics and someone suggested making your photos no larger than 800x800. Haven't tried it yet, but maybe that will help?? :)

  6. Dearest Megs Blogger aka google is really trying hard to make some MONEY off of all of us bloggers...You don't find it funny that TONS of bloggers mysteriously have hit their quota of photos this month? HMMMM sounds fishy to me! :) I just blogged about this LAST WEEK and how I was seriously going to quit blogger if they were going to make me pay! I just upload all photos to photobucket and link the URL (in blogger when you click that pictures upload button there is an option on the side that says upload picture from URL and that's what I'm doing to bypass paying google anything!)

  7. Okay seems like 1/2 off all the blogs I read have had this happen in the past week...seems really strange so many are reaching the limit at the same time ?!

  8. It happened to me recently too! You have unlimited photo uploads as long as the file is less than 800X800 (as Whitney already mentioned). Just edit the file size of your pics so none of the dimensions are larger than 800pixles. Works like a charm :)

  9. I had the same problem, so I uploaded to Flickr and pasted the HTML code in my Blogger post. Worked like a charm, and the pictures are bigger!

  11. Yep me too. Photo bucket account. Paste the direct link code into the URL option under upload photo. Extra step but free:)
