Got to 100%!

I post my own art and photos here, but they do take up a lot of space on my WordPress account. Today I tried loading a photo only to be told I didn’t have sufficient space. I had got to 100%! I have had to go in and delete some of my photos to get to 99.4%…just enough to squeeze a few more photos in. I shall try posting my pictures from my media. It does mean that some of my posts now have no images to go with them, but I can’t afford a more expensive plan, so there it is.

Deleting photos.. Again

I have just deleted 1% of my photos on my WordPress account. Because I had reached 99.9% of images on my media… 13 gigabytes of pictures! The only way to add images is to delete old ones. So if you find a post I have written without an image you know why!

Since I started this blog a few years ago I have always tried to add images of my own to illustrate what I’m describing. I’ve tried to limit them to one’s that were not as good, a bit confusing or untidy. I hope readers don’t mind. But unless I do this I won’t be adding any more images!

WordPress keeps stopping?

I don’t know if it’s me or WordPress but the site keeps closing on me. I’ve just deleted a few more photographs from previous posts and taken my memory down to 98.3% full! I’ve always posted my own pictures here and I used to always post large images.. Big mistake. I can’t afford to upgrade my memory. I guess I will have to keep my pictures restricted in size and keep deleting them!

Thumbnails

I’m going to shrink a lot of my images to thumbnail size and derlete the old photos. It’s going to take some time, but my phone memory and WordPress memories keep getting fuller. I don’t like doing it because I want people to see my art, but I’m hoping if you look on the images on a tablet and a computer you will be able to see them OK?

I hope the blogs will still be acceptable. I am also deleting a few older images. I’m on 97.7% full media at the moment. It’s going to take ages to try and reduce my file sizes, hopefully the words don’t take up too much space.

Editing my blog?

Added text to a pattern…

I was just reading someone’s blog post. Then I thought I would add my comment here as it explains why I remove photos as well as tidying up posts that don’t always read well.

I edit spelling mistakes, my grammar isn’t always good. If I add anything to improve or clarify a post, I don’t know if anyone will re-read it. WordPress maintains the day the post was published on, so if I change things 48 hours later it won’t change that date. Sometimes I have accidentally saved a post as a draft then found it on my PC sitting there waiting to be published. When I do the blog post is sent back to the original day I wrote it. I’m not sure if you can change the date, unless you copy and paste everything and publish that (deleting the original one).

One thing I sometimes do is remove my old photos. They take up a lot of storage space. I wasn’t aware of that when I joined, so I always used to put in full screen images of photos or original art works. I’m generally around 97% full and sometimes am prevented from posting unless I delete a few photos. If you know any interesting quirks about editing let me know!

Missing photos?!

I just had to delete photos from my blog because I got to 99.7% full! I’ve got it down to 97.8%…what should I do?

Every time I post a photo now I make sure it’s on medium or thumbnail to save space.

I’ve tried to take photos off that were early on in my blog and that were not very good. But I don’t really like to do that. Anyway if you find a blog post missing a photo you know why. X

Full…

My WordPress is getting too full of images again. I try and put a new photo or art on each page, but when my media is around 86% full it won’t allow me to upload new images. So unfortunately I’m going to have to delete pictures to make more room. I will delete them from the older pages. It will probably mean that the page and writing will still be there, but the image might be missing. Sorry if this is a problem. I might try and increase my package with WordPress but that will cost me money. I don’t want to clutter my blog up with ads either. We will see what happens.

Move to trash…

I have no space here. Each time I try and post a new photo I get the message that I don’t have enough space. 99 or 100% of memory full..

I will update my WordPress account although I don’t know if I can really afford it. I suppose I just got too involved in this, seeing my stats going up week by week. Feeling the excitement that people might like what I do.

So I’m using an old picture I drew instead of something new tonight. Eeking out my space. I have things I want to say but I don’t have space, photos I want to post, words to speak. Life to live. Maybe I can do more soon.

I can use my images that are already uploaded but I can’t use any new pictures because I’ve reached my limit. Ideally I’d like to remove or delete some pictures to make more space but can’t see how to delete them off WordPress.

Maybe I should go through my earliest posts here and delete them? I mean who is going to be interested in my ramblings? I could upgrade my plan here. But then it means spending more. Should I just post to Facebook and leave here, after all it was going to be an art blog but it’s not really kept to that track, more of a muttering in the ear of a few hundred people, occasionally a flicker of recognition. So anyway, any recommendations?
