Picasa Nightmare!

For those who use Blogger, listen up!

Did you know:  Every picture you put on your blog is stored in a Picasa Web Album.

Did you know: Google only gives you 1GB free space of Picasa.

Did you know:  Once you go over that 1GB of free space, Google wants you to purchase more space for a monthly fee!

Did you know: If you delete a picture from Picasa Web Album that it will delete it from your blog.

I DID NOT KNOW:  Until I got a "Whoops" error!

"Whoops! You're out of space. You are currently using 100% of your 1 GB quota for storage".  Upgrade storage

I have two blogs: Pretty Purplexing and Aunt Tami's House. I have also been blogging since 2009.  Add that all up and you get 1 GB of storage.

I do not know how to get around this issue. Has anyone ever encountered this problem?  If so, what have you done?

I am angry at Google! 

The temptation is there to stop using Blogger and switch to Word Press or another format.  The problem I have with that… I have two new blog designs…. I do not know if they will transfer over to another format.  (This is another problem for another day).
