Google informed me yesterday that after 4+ years of blogging, I have now exceeded my limit for free picture storage on the site. Wow! I can either continue blogging sans photos (BORING!) or pay $2.49/month for the rest of the blog's life to increase the storage and keep it at Google. If I opt to stay with Google, I'll be paying ~$30/year to maintain a blogspot address. OR I can transfer and have my own domain/website for ~$8/year. What would you do?!
It is tempting to switch domains and save $22/year. I am a frugal franny and what I could do with $22!!! ;)
Yet I know what happened the last time I switched domains--I lost a bunch of readers (even though I thought I gave everyone fair warning--sorry!) But it's not about popularity. I started this blog as a way for family and friends to keep tabs on our family. In the process, I love that it has become a visual archive of the happenings of our little corner of the world. One day I will spend the gobs of money necessary to print it and turn it into a book. Perhaps I'll even make copies for each of the kids to have for posterity.
This will be my legacy to them.
Stay tuned as to the future of G-Ville on blogspot.
And in the meantime, thank you, Lord, for this blog.
With love on black Friday (though the color means nothing to us in G-Ville! :),
