Sometimes living life in a big family does feel like a three-ring circus, but that's my life, and, all-in-all, I LOVE IT!

Uh-Oh ~ Reached My Limit On Uploading Photos AGAIN!

I've had to abandon 'Umma's World' and now I'm forced to abandon this blog as well!  

I am having the same problem a few of my fellow-bloggers have complained about this past year.  A few of my blog friends opted to retire from blogging altogether because they have reached their limit on uploading photos in blogger, and in order to be able to upload more they have to pay a monthly fee.
I had gotten that same message a few months ago, I thought that by starting a new blog (this 'Our Family Circus' one) that would help solve the problem (it didn't!), so Ray helped me and he went through our albums and deleted some photos to give me more room, but now it's happened again! I didn't realize that because I was using the same blogger ID to start new blogs (I had one blog that I did mostly tablescapes on and that had lots of photos uploaded to it) anyway, all these blogs were all thrown together (I knew I could access all my blogs from the same profile, but I stupidly didn't think about them all being linked together as far as uploading pictures).

Now, the main reason that I want to blog is to keep a sort of picture journal about my family, sort of a 'short story' book/diary for myself about my family life.  So I figured I'd have to be retiring from blogging now too because if I can't upload pictures it defeats my main reason for blogging.  But then Ray told me to try starting a new blog under a whole new ID, so I have.  And I think as far as uploading pictures go I will be starting anew (at least I hope so!)

So, now I will be blogging on another whole new blog.  So sorry to anyone who has bothered to try and keep up with following me ~ I'm making you jump through hoops these past few months!
My family posts and photos will now be HERE.  'Hope to see you there!


  1. Oh Eileen you know I'd follow you anywhere!! Sorry I haven't been by this week. I took a week off of work and have been enjoying this gorgeous weather!
    I had the same problem with blogger and the photos. I think they have a lot of nerve but whatever! Ginny did the same with my files. I don't know how long it will last. I may end up paying the fee anyway. But for now, I am going to hop on over to your new blog! Love You, Di ♥

  2. Eileen....I only pay $20.00 once a year to Google for uploading photos through Picasa and I have 4 blogs that I post photos on. That $20.00 buys me way more space than I really need. There are lesser amounts to buy though!
