I do have a bit of a beef, though, with Blogger. I like to use photos - a lot. You may have noticed. And I have been merrily uploading since 2008. Sometimes, I'll even upload a photo and then not use it. Oh, the profligacy! Because, what is not spelled out when you sign up is that there is a limit to the size of the photo storage box - or whatever the Blogger equivalent is. I hit that limit yesterday as I was uploading my queens.
I was instructed to begin paying...which is totally reasonable and I'm not ranting about that part. I just don't like getting sucked into something that is so much a part of my life and then being told that the ground rules have changed. They probably haven't changed at all. I just didn't know. Betcha a lot of folks don't know until the big box covers their screen and says they've hit the wall. My immediate solution was to dive into Picasa - which is not my normal photo storage site - and start to delete. Of course, there are dire warnings that the deleted photos will be gone from one's hard drive. I only got rid of two because I didn't have time to fiddle around yesterday. They were a couple that I didn't use and I hope my solution doesn't make a difference to previous blogs.
So, that's it. Blogger, you should have said up front. Now I'm going through the Picasa albums I never really knew I had. I know, I know. Dumb. Where did I think the photos were going?
And that's why I'm not a very good ranter....I calm down and see the other side pretty quickly. Doesn't mean I think they're right...but I get that others need to control their universe, too. Must be that other R-word: respect.
