Baby, it’s not you, it’s me.
Over the last month I’ve been dealing with multiple bug invasions to my home, issues with my driver’s license and getting a new job. Good news is: I have a new job! Bad news is: I’ve clearly neglected all else.
I’m currently working on some posts to get this beast of a review site back up and running (tons of streaming shows have just finished up, after all), but that brings me to issue number two.
My poor little images.
Now I know pictures aren’t the end all be all to a site. Except, they sorta are. Ever tried to read an all text blog? Try it sometime. It hurts. Kinda a lot. As such, I’ve always tried to include at least one, if not multiple, images in my posts to ease reading and also because anime ties into art itself quite a bit. Pictures are actually all over my page, which makes it a big deal when my image dumping site just doesn’t cut it anymore.
There is a silver lining to all this. My images aren’t working because I’m getting too much traffic on here. Meaning my site is doing just what it’s supposed to do: help anime fans get the info they’re looking for efficiently and, hopefully, enjoyably. But that does leave me with a nasty problem. I now require an image housing site that can handle a decent traffic flow. That means a paid subscription (for the interim I’ll be using what free space is available to me via WordPress). Now that I have a job, I can handle that, but knowing where to start is overwhelming.
So, my dear readers (many of which are amazing bloggers themselves), do you have image housing site recommendations for me? I know WordPress offers premium services, but I’ve so far seen them as a bit pricey for what they offer. Although, this info may be outdated by now. Any info/tips I can get on this would be lovely.
In the mean time: stay tune for a review coming up in about… oh, say, an hour or so. ;)
