Blogger Limits: Picture Storage

There is a limit on the amount of picture storage in Blogger / Picasa. The referential Blogger Help: What are the limits on my Blogger account? tells us
Number of Pictures: Up to 1 GB of total storage, shared with Picasa Web
then
Size of Pictures: If you are posting pictures through Blogger Mobile there is a limit of 250K per picture.

Picasa is one of the few Google applications which sells a service upgrade, for more storage - and one application which needs to be considered with great care, when you consider the future of any seemingly unused Blogger / GMail / Google account.

And, there's a known problem with Picasa and paid storage, with a clumsy workaround.
Users who have paid for additional storage space on Picasa Web Albums may not be able to use their additional storage space from within Blogger.

Google has provided the "Basic storage usage" wizard, to let us proactively monitor our storage use. In some cases, we may need to briefly log out then in of both Google and Picasa, to enable our access.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):
