Recently, I noticed my WordPress media library nearly filling up to capacity. Oblivious to what would happen, I went through old photos and started deleting the ones I didn’t like, unknowingly also deleting them from each post that they were embedded in. I seriously don’t know what I was thinking and why I deleted so many when in the back of my mind I thought it was possible that something irreversible would happen.
Anyhow, that sad situation led me to start thinking about the future of my blog. I started this project with the intention of keeping it for at least a year, a fun practice in focus and in finishing projects for me, but now it looks like I won’t even be able to make it a full year at the rate I post pictures. I don’t want to change the amount of pictures I post because I feel they greatly improve the quality of my posts.
So here I am, asking for advice from my fellow bloggers. How do you handle reaching capacity in your media library? Even if I were to purchase the Premium Plan, what would happen when I filled my library up to 13 GB? Do I have any options, other than rendering older posts obsolete by permanently deleting those photographs from my media library? Does anyone recommend a different platform for this type of blog?
Thank you for your help! Connecting with this community of bloggers has been a lot of fun for me and I really want to find a way to continue developing and improving my content.
