Um… half our space is used up…

I just noticed that we have used up half our space allowed on the free version of WordPress.com (this is our 1,394th post).

We should be ok for at least 12 months but… remember the questions I raised about whether we should seek sponsorship if we carry on in 2014…? I had forgotten then to check how much space we had and how much we had used.

Any thoughts?

Weekly Blog Club was set up in early January 2012 to encourage people to blog regularly, and especially to encourage those working in and with the public sector, charities and voluntary organisations in the UK to find their own 'voice' through writing.

  1. […] take things forward in 2014 – see my Week 42 summary Say hello, hug, say goodbye? and also Um… half our space is used up… – and very interested to hear in ideas from others. If I could afford to buy some server […]

    Maybe it would be a good time to rethink how we do WBC. When I’m hosting for the week I find it quite a big task to create a post for each blog as well as the summary post. It would use up less storage space if we just do a summary post each week. What do people think? It’d be interesting to look at the stats for the individual pages vs the summary posts.

      I agree, keep it simple

    • The reasons why I thought posts about each post were a good idea initially were:
      1) to promote the post in a way that helps the original post to get a slightly better search ranking (links from outside a post to it, push it up a little);
      2) provide the opportunity to comment and to ‘Like’ for blogs that didn’t have those facilities;
      3) to provide some key wording that could pull in to an individual post/blog new readers who search for a topic;
      4) provide another opportunity for the original authors or people who liked a post to promote it without repeating the original tweet/status update.
      But, yes, it is quite a lot of work.
      Janet.

    I think that sounds like a good idea Louise. Maybe there could also be a couple of tweets saying “blogs this week by xxxx”
