Dear followers, readers and friends,

it’s been over a month that I haven’t posted any images here. I’ve been blogging for close to ten years I believe and recently it came to a halt. And the reason is that Word Press is going to charge me a blunt $ 250 to $ 300 per year to get unlimited space in order to proceed my passion of blogging. Apparently I have used up all storage over the years and am not able to continue on the plan I had actually upgraded last year, I am talking about image storage. Having all that said  I haven’t made a decision yet, how and if to continue, just wanted to share about my recent absence. Meanwhile I keep enjoying your posts. Wish you all happy blogging. Cornelia Weber Photography

In my photography work I thrive to capture the soul of the moment. I let my images speak the language of stillness and vibration, with that I leave my audience to find their own reflections and emotions. My approach in my work is to lead other's to their own imagination and freedom of dreams. I invite you to visit my web site www.corneliaweber-photography.com

  1. I hope things turn out in your favour and we get to admire your beautiful pictures once again Cornelia!

  2. Simply open a new wordpress site and then you can even take images or text from your first site.

    All good wishes, dear friend

    Once you use your free space, which I did years ago, there is an annual charge. I have been paying for several years now. I get to pay twice a year, something which has never been properly explained.

    Hope you will pay us a visit once in a while. I’m sure Mr. Bowie would miss you, Cornelia… 😉
    I’m going to face the same problem as you. I have almost used all my space on WP. Don’t know what I’m going to do. Maybe delete some old photographs from 9 years ago?

    I am not sure whether what I have to say will help you, Cornelia. If you go to the photos that you have stored in your blog and delete the ones that you used first, you free up some space to carry on with your blog. I realized that eventually I also would run out of space, since I am using a lot of photos to embellish my posts. Before I import the photos, I reduce them to 1000 px maximum on the long side. The quality of the picture on the screen does not suffer because of it. And you can post many more pictures within the allotment allowed by WordPress.
    Thank you, dear Cornelia, for all those wonderful comments you gave me! It is greatly appreciated.

    Your post prompted me to wander among your earliest posts from 2010 and 2011. So many beautiful posts, photographs and thoughts. Whatever you decide to do, thank you for your posts and best wishes for the future.

    I have always reduced picture size. Despite blogging for almost 3 years and posting a few thousand pictures I still haven’t used more than 20% of storage. I hope you are able to sort this out, Cornelia. Just wanted to let you know, you are missed here!

    • Thank you Arv, for your kindness. I have never reduced pic size until a few months ago, but now it’s too late. I will stay on WP until I have found a better solution to move to, but will my blogging friends know. Happy blogging to you.

      • arv! says:

        The biggest advantages that WP provides is by way of the timeline which in enables you lots of views and ease in commenting. Hope it gets sorted out. There is an option for you but laborious one. I’m not sure if you want to undertake that.

      • Thank you Arv, now I am curious to know about the other option.

      • arv! says:

        You will need to resize the pictures and upload them at the same time removing the old ones. Also, you can delete the posts that are not relevant or not read/appreciated to make space.

      • Thank you Arv. I deleted tons of posts from 2009 until 2017, to free space, but Word Press doesn’t accept that as a freeing space, they say I already used it and it can’t be undone as far as gaining more space. Word Press isn’t treating me fairly at all. Resizing and uploading at the same is an idea but way too much work and I don’t even know at this point if Word Press will give me more storage after all. But thank you dear friend for thinking of solutions. Have a great creative weekend.

      • arv! says:

        Cornelia, have you considered buying extra space? They do have that option. Just checking…I’m thinking you must have explored that already,

      • Hi Arv, yes I have purchased extra space over the last 2 years, so that extra space came to an end and now they want me to buy more for $300 per year. Gosh it’s an exhausting issue. But thank you so much dear Arv, for thinking of different solutions for me, that is very, very kind of you. Have a great creative week.

      • arv! says:

        That’s way too much 😠 well you will have to look for some other​ option. Why don’t you write to them that it’s too much and if they don’t offer something better, move on!

      • Thank you my friend Arv, I have written to them and being on their online chat several times.

      • arv! says:

        Well I guess there aren’t many options then, Cornelia.

  8. That’s ridiculous. How can they charge that much? Are they giving you other options?

  9. Cornelia! It is an incredible iourney of nearing 10 of blogging. Accept my heart felt Congratulations.
    I think I had suggested on this issue a few months back to remove some of your Photos from your older posts. It may provide additional space for you to blog further.
    There is no way you should not continue. You have been a great friend to many in WP, your compassion, thoughts and feelings everyone of us enjoy.
    $300 is a big sum for bloggers like us, who blog for the pleasure of it. WP is indirectly being benefitted.
    You are a Great Friend and you shall continue to be.

    • Dear Shiva, I apologize for such late respond to your heart felt comment. Thank you so much for your endless kindness in your words. For time being I will be still there, but not publishing, until I have found a more affordable solution. Blogging with my images is my passion for my photography business. But I’ll see what other opportunity will be placed in front of me. I will my blogging world know where I’ll be moving to. Take care and be well. And thank you again.

  10. Bummer!
    Can you go back and remove old posts? Does that feel acceptable to you?

  11. I am sorry to hear about this. I hope you won’t quit blogging, it’s been an inspiration to follow you. Of course, one way to get around the problem, is starting a new blog and link to the posts from the here. 🙂

  12. Dalo 2013 says:

    I hope things work out, hate to have you stop posting and inspiring us all.

  13. luna tan says:

    this is such sad thing to read, 10 years of blogging is truly admirable and for sure takes a lot of dedication. i hope you can find a way to continue. you are one of my favorite person in the world wide web 🙂

  14. Tina Schell says:

    Yikes Cornelia. Let this be a lesson to all of us! There is now way I’d put that kind of money into my blog. Let us know if you find a solution. Several of us have noticed how aggressively WP is marketing paid blogging options vs their free options. I’m not confident free will be available for much longer 😡

    • Tina, thank you so much for your compassion regarding WP charges. As long as you post your images in a very low resolution you are okay, which I haven’t done over the many years, and threw me of totally in my usage with WP, I just like a year I started to use low res, but too late than. Having said that, WP , doesn’t handle my case fairly, but I haven’t had the time yet to look for another solution as far as blogging. $300 a year is just way too much. Enjoy your blogging and I love your work. I’ll keep you updated once I have moved my blog.

  15. Jill says:

    I was overseas when you made your announcement so just visiting now. So sorry you are having this problem. I guess it’s a lesson to be learned to always reduce your photo size, especially in your case. Miss you, Cornelia!

  16. I too am sorry to read this, Cornelia. The same thing will probably happen to me, but I started resizing two or three years ago and that has helped. I think it’s lousy that they won’t let you resize and delete.
    Good luck and please let us know where you move if that happens.

  17. Jane Lurie says:

    HI Cornelia, Sorry I didn’t see this… I wondered what had happened. Assume you resize your images? Oh, I just saw your answer. Yes..it’s important to resize for many reasons. Glad WP worked it out for you!
