As it turns out, I use a lot of pictures.
Not exactly something I ever expected to say considering I bank so heavily on my love of the written word over visuals, but apparently my blind insistence on using lots of images to liven up my Fire Emblem posts has apparently caught up with me. As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m essentially out of media space just over 300 posts in:
I don’t know if this is a good or a bad post-to-space-usage ratio necessarily, but it’s the reality I’m living with.
In fact, you’ve probably noticed a slight scaling down of image use around here since… Say… My Old Fort MacArthur post from this year, as I’ve been trying to keep my space viable for as long as possible.
That is, outside of the Fire Emblem posts. Which, like I mentioned, are probably the biggest space fillers I’ve got in terms of images. With a Feh Channel video planned to drop tonight and new units coming out tomorrow, I’ll probably be doing a slightly more extended post for the morning on the latest stuff for the game.
But I’m also going to see if I can get away with doing that using a smaller number of pictures. Trim the fat, as it were.
Ironic, isn’t it? I started to use more pictures to make the words more interesting for a larger audience, but now I’m stuck back using more words due to lack of space for the images.
I suppose we’ll see how it works out. At some point I’ll find a proper balance I’m sure.
I’m going to keep searching for that balance even once I get this upgrade out-of-the-way, too. I think it’ll do me some good to shake things up where I can and make a more concise product, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to just indignantly work my way forward with no images forever.
If anything, after about two-to-three years of using this blog here, I think it’s probably worth going ahead and starting to invest some money into it. Even if it’s with the most basic upgrade package.
Hopefully you’ll all stick around as I try to mess with things more. Given my intent to keep doing this daily post thing, I’m sure having the extra space will open up plenty more opportunities to do cool things.
