I’m joining in Paula’s Monday Peeve today, because this problem bugs me every time.

It’s the media storage space on WP. I run out of space all the time, because I post lots of pictures. But still, I wish they had unlimited space without buying ever more expensive plans.

I just renewed my subscription to WP, as I do every year, and it’s a paid for one. I think if you re-new for a year, we should get another year’s worth of media storage space. Right?

So now I’m out for the millionth time it seems. All I can do is delete a lot … a lot … of my post’s photos in order to put a new one up. This bugs me so much.

And, it’s not one for one either! Seems I have to delete about 50 to 100 photos to get space for one or two new ones.  Do you know how long it takes to go back through old photos to decide if you want to get rid of one or not? A long time.

I was going to do my Tree Square challenge photo today, and my next House post today, but nope, can’t upload a photo until I take a day out to delete some photos. Ugh!!!

So that’s my peeve today.

Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

    • Thanks, Paula! I did go back through and deleted a bunch. I know people don’t usually go way back to old posts just to see a photo, but still. I do have all the photos on my phone though. 🙂

    • Thanks, Kim! So far I’ve just gone to the media file that shows all the photos I have, then go one by one deleting. I don’t actually go back to each separate post. 🙂

    • Thanks, Ellen! I like my posts to stay the way I make them with the photos there, even if no one ever goes way back to see them. I know I’ve had a few times that someone did, and asked where the picture went, and I had to explain I ran out of storage and had to delete. Kind of embarrassing actually. 🙂

  1. According to WP, I’m “currently using 2.3 GB out of 6.0 GB upload limit (39%),” so I’m safe for a while longer. Fo what it’s worth, for almost all of my photos I post on my blog, I resize them considerably before adding them to my media file.

    • Thanks, Fandango! I’ve never resized a photo, as I like how they are big enough to see, but not so big it takes up tons of room. I will edit a photo in my phone to crop out unwanted parts before uploading to WP media. Yes, seems like you have plenty of space on yours for quite awhile. 🙂

    • Thanks, Kathleen! I should look into doing this, though I have no idea how. I think I had a Flickr one time but didn’t know how to use it, so who knows if it’s still there. Thanks for the suggestion! 🙂
