A Pictorial History

I reached a peculiar milestone a few days ago. I hit my storage limit for pics on blogger. Apparently I was uploading them in much too large a file or format or something. And because of the large of amount of tutorials I do there are a TON of pics saved here. Oops. So until I figure out if I'm going to go back and resize things (total pain in the neck) or splurge and pay the $5 a year, I haven't been posting. For some reason it completely seems wrong of me to write a post without pictures. I know people do it all the time but it's not my usual and it really makes me fairly uncomfortable. So tonight, in a stop gap measure of sorts I went through a ton of old posts looking for one's to delete. I'm thinking of it as a curating sort of task as well as a practical one. I know that many of my posts were me just speaking to the moment. "This is where I am, what I'm doing, etc. etc." A few repeat themselves, but all in all it was hard to find posts I was willing to part with. This blog has been such a labor of love for me, as your blogs are for many of you too, that I see value in my being able to look back and see where I was a few years ago, even if those of you who are here today aren't likely to wade on back through the archives and read all 380+ posts.

So I've held on to them. Just a little bit longer. And I'll decide what to do- just maybe not tonight. :)

I hit that mark a few months ago...

I went with the $5. WAY easier.

DON'T delete posts! $5 a year - not bad. And posts without pics...ummm, no. I don't like that. Art is way too visual for that :)

Please save! It's a great way to chronicle your life. Just skip a $5 treat one day and you've got the year paid for.
