Dear Flickr.com,

Standard

You’ve got quite a racket going on over on your site, you know that? You lure people in with the promise of free storage for their pictures and you make editing photos so very easy. No one can blame the innocent mommy blogger who gets caught up in the hype and starts uploading photos of her cute kid like a crazy woman. It’s free, right? And she can happily direct her readers to your site to view her photos. No problem.

But there IS a problem–one that you don’t mention when mommy bloggers such as myself sign up for Flickr. Upload up to 200 pictures and all of a sudden I need to pay to upgrade? Wait, what? I thought this was supposed to be a free site. Well. Turns out I could just start a Facebook page for my blog and upload as many pictures as I want there. FOR FREE. Granted, Facebook now owns my soul, but you know…. Anyway, I have cancelled my account through Flickr because I am not entirely happy with having to pay to post my pictures on a site that states storage is free unless you go above 200 pictures. Not worth the hassle or the money.

Love,

Cindy

About cdhoose

I'm a mom to an amazing little girl and have another little one on the way. I live in Upstate New York with my fiance and daughter, 2 big, crazy dogs and a 3-legged cat (who has an attitude). I hate know-it-alls, Lindsay Lohan and socks with holes in them. I always seem to get myself into trouble (which entertains my fiance to no end), but I try hard to be a good parent. Also, I occasionally work on scrapbooking the fifty billion pictures I've taken of my kid. And I like ice cream. The end.
