Bear with me... #Photobucket killed my sites!

This post will be cross-posted on all of my sites.

You may not have heard about Photobucket screwing over a ton of people with their new third party image hosting plan. (Read more here: Basically, it means if you have a free account, you can no longer host your images without paying $400/year! So, all those clever grab codes I make for images and buttons...they have to be fixed with a new link from wherever the images are now being hosted. Luckily, I own two domains on GoDaddy so I get free image storage up to a certain amount and then I can pay extra if I need more (only $1.99/month). But with 7+ blogs/sites, it's going to take me a bit. I hope you will bear with me.

If you have any of my buttons on your site, I'm afraid you will have to delete and then come back by at a later date to grab the new code. There should not be any further problems in future. Fingers crossed.

I hope Photobucket crashes and burns for their underhanded tactics. I mean, I didn't even get an email notifying me!

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. I have used Photobucket for many years. A few years ago, I needed more storage space for images so I upgraded to the Plus20 for $29.99 per year after using it for all of those years for free. On February 23, 2018, I got a message from Photobucket saying my Plus20 has been discontinued but I can upgrade to $99.99!! THEN on February 26, 2018, (TODAY), I got a notice from PayPal saying Photobucket took $29.99 from my account for my yearly subscription to the now discontinued Plus20 account! Photobucket is crooked in every sense of the word and I am letting everyone know how they have done. I am disputing this charge but shouldn't have to go through all of this nonsense.

    1. Just when I thought they couldn't be any more shady. Geez. I hope you get your money back.

    2. This explains a lot! BBB rating of F!!!!!!

    3. Yup! Looks like the karma bus has made its stop, just as I predicted. Good!
