Optimism, Wild Art and Balloons

25 Jan


WordPress are telling me that I cannot upload any photos as there is no room. I don’t understand this as I have just renewed my Premium rate contract with them.  I wanted to show you some of the artwork done by the young people who meet weekly with WILD, an amazing organisation who work with young parents all across Cornwall. I was invited to their 25th Birthday Party this afternoon and was moved and inspired by what they do – how they give young parents confidence, hope, strength, optimism and practical help. I can give you a link so that you can look them up and see what wonderful work they do.

When I hear from the WordPress Happiness Engineers, I’ll add the photos later.

I have had help and will sort the problem tomorrow.

    It is frustrating… And they call themselves happiness engineers…. Hope you get somewhere. X

      Unless I pay over £200 to upgrade to business, it seems the solution is to upload photos to Flickr and then move them to the blog – easy enough to do but irritating and it means that no photo appears on my Facebook notification of a post. Also – sorry for the rant! – it seems that I cannot make galleries or use circles to make my blog look more interesting…. Never mind! Look for the beautiful in everything! 🙂

        It seems you can only have your blog for so long….until its full. Then it get s harder or start a new blog, really. I don’t even know Flickr. It is sad you cannot use galleries anymore either. They might change it again after a while… who knows.

          I have looked at Blogger but not really happy to change to them. Perhaps I should start mybeautfulthings2 and hope people will follow again.🙂

            I don’t like Blogspot. I am sure all followers will follow you, if you announce it and leave your blog still live, not deleting it. You know Sylvia from anotherdayinparadise, she had to do it too, when she had problems.

    I feel your pain about the photos. I don’t understand why people who pay money for a domain name or premium subscription etc. should even have to worry but apparently we do! Hope everything gets sorted out for you.

      It seems that I have used all my space and to upload more photos have to move to the Business account! I had thought that paying each year I had the media allowance for the next year. It seems not! I’m wondering what to do. Perhaps I should simply stop using this blog and open Version2!
      Thank you for your kindness. 🙂

        I understand what you mean. I’m paying for the domain I have but apparently that doesn’t get me any extra media space either. I’m worried if I open another blog I will confuse people who have been following this one – that happened before. It’s so frustrating! Anymore to illustrate words it requires pictures because most people have more attention span, myself included at times, for pictures than words! Keep us posted, I want to stay in touch.
