Photobucket insisting that I upgrade to expensive plan for the hosting of pics on 3rd party sites such as forums, blogs etc

Hey any and all,

After many years of happily blogging away and hosting the pics on my photobucket account, there seems to have been a change of heart and in order to continue using my Photobucket account to host images on 3rd party sites, such as this blog, I would need to upgrade to a much more expensive plan than desired.

I will not be doing this so regret to say this looks like the end of the posts here until I have found a solution for the image hosting.


Thanks for your interest over the years.

  2. I will be looking for a solution, this is annoying me as I put a lot of effort into the post and they are now unreadable..

    The fixing will not be a quick job either... *groan*

  3. Hi TAPE, don't stop!

    You might be interested to host your own WordPress website and import all your posts from this blogspot!

    You will require a hosting provider (like Versio) to install WordPress and register a fancy domain name (could be less than EUR 10 per year). In below article you might find the steps to follow to import your posts into WordPress (or just Google "move blogspot to own domain").

    Hope this will be valuable for you as you have been with your blog to us!
    Good luck and many thanks so far!

    Greetings,

  4. Thanks MaXoN!
    I will have to have a look as although a lot of the posts are a tad out of date, there has been a considerable time investment in making them (or so my SO insists..) and it would be a shame for them all to go the way of the dodo..

    Thanks for the words of encouragement :)
