How can I continue to blog without throwing away old info / photos?

  1. Saving the blog - over mb limit - I'm approaching the 3 MB limit. I'd like to have previous posts somewhere where people can see them, including photos. How can I do that?

    I'm blogging on a trip...I'm now at my destination, but I'll be heading home soon. i'd like to continue the blog....

    Thanks.

  2. I'm approaching the 3 MB limit for photos. I'd like to have previous posts somewhere where people can see them, including photos. How can I do that?

  3. You sure must have uploaded a lot of files and images because WordPress.com blogs come with 3000 megabytes (~3 GBs) of space for storing uploaded files and images. Our posts and pages are included in that at all ie. there is no space limitation on them. I've been here over 6 years and I am currently using only 76.9 MB out of 3.0 GB upload limit - only 3%. If you need more space you can purchase a Space Upgrade but I suspect you may just be confused. http://en.support.wordpress.com/space-upgrade/

    I'd like to have previous posts somewhere where people can see them, including photos.

    All of your posts can be made accessible by installing the Recent Posts widget, Categories widget, Tag Cloud widget and Archives widget.

  4. Oops... I can read, too. I saw MB as the limit, not GB. I have plenty of space left. Thanks. And thanks for the info on widgets.

  5. Hooray! I thought that you probably missed that. You're welcome and best wishes for happy blogging.

  6. Thanks! I'd like to do a website using WordPress, and this was my introduction to it....

  7. Hi again,

    Thanks! I'd like to do a website using WordPress, and this was my introduction to it....

    See > Using WordPress.com to Create a Website http://en.support.wordpress.com/using-wordpress-to-create-a-website/

    A WordPress blog can either be structured as a page based website or its conventional post based structure can be retained. That’s why understanding the differences between posts and pages, http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ comprehending the SEO implications of creating a page based structure, and knowing how to use custom menus http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
    are key to decision making when selecting a theme, and setting up your WordPress.com blog. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/05/12/better-blogging-at-wordpress-com-pages-and-posts/

    One one hand, none of the characteristic "blog" features likes categories, tags, authors, dates, etc. can be removed from a free hosted WordPress.com blog without purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.

    One that other hand, one can hack a WordPress.org theme free of charge. Have you read this comparison? WordPress.com and WordPress.org: The Differences http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  8. Thanks -- in the next few days I'll look at all the links you sent. I appreciate it!
