They need to as a result of all the images that I share I needed to go on a WordPress Business Plan I have used the 13GB allowed on the Premium Plan which last year cost $99/year. After my whinging and discounts it has cost me $250 for next year. This gives me unlimited storage for media files to share with you.
Admittedly I get some money from WordAds, the returns from this have reduced significantly. Google is getting too greedy I think.
But it is starting me thinking is it all worth it.
I started Bear Tales many years ago when I was a young bloke LOL ;). I had many friends on different social sites so I could post on Bear Tales and share to all of them in one go. No need to do individual posts on other blogs like FaceBook, Twitter, Google+ etc.. I didn’t intend for it to be commercial just sharing with friends and a bit of fun!
Bear Tales is approaching 12,000 posts. There are 10s millions of views with the best post recording almost 14 mil views. So I must be doing something right?
Now WordPress is becoming expensive and their “happiness engineers” are not so helpful nor happy.
The almighty dollar prevails!
I have spent the money taken the plan and told them things need to improve otherwise it is the last year.
