Hello everyone, it’s been a long time! I haven’t disappeared for good, but I have enjoyed my short break. Meanwhile I’ve found some solutions to the whole wordpress-wants-to-charge-me-moolah problem. One theory I have is that I burned through my blog storage extra fast because I’ve been using nice hi-res photos. The bigger the photo, the more memory it uses. So I’m probably going to painstakingly replace every photo on my blog (so many…) with a slightly lower-res one. I’ve been using my photos in all their 3000 pixel glory, so I think I can change everything to like 900 x 1200 without any terrible loss of quality.
As you can probably tell, this is going to be really time consuming. I’m at 99% full in the storage wordpress gives me, so I can’t upload a lot of photo replacements at once. Also I’m not even 100% sure if this is truly what’s killing my blog storage but it’s worth a try!
Long story short, I will still totally be around! I know I’ll be writing a March Empties post soon, and some other posts are in the works. But until I get the memory issue under control, posts will be slower than usual.
Thanks to everyone for sticking around so far! I’ll be back soon 🙂
