"It is out of the dailiness of life that one is driven
into the deepest recesses of the self."
 Stanley Kunitz
I wanted to change the August header photo, and the quote for Ms. Uncertainty Principles, however, I was informed by Google that I have exceeded my limit for uploading photos!  They-It invites me to pay a small fee to increase my quota which are stored at Picasa,
but I have no ability to effect cash transactions on the Internet since I do not possess credit, debit or pay pal accounts.  So, what to do?  I uploaded the photo to my other blog, which limit I have yet to exceed, and place the new quote here.
I am debating what further to do about this conundrum--switch to Somewhere Sometime and abandon Ms. Uncertainty who has exceeded her limit?
Any suggestions will be gratefully received,
especially from fellow e-bloggers
I just uploaded the two images above in the body of the blog, and apparently I can still do that,
but can not replace the header photo with a new one.
It's a mystery.

i believe it has to do with the size of the image. the header image is quite large and only a certain number are allowed before you have to pay. pictures under 800 pixels are unlimited. google your problem and i'm sure you will find more info.

thanks deanna---the problem is in blogger specs...when I try to replace the image using their "shrink to fit"-which is the setting i've had since the beginning-but they have 'improved' picture delivery recently, so now they project any picture I choose at 820 pixels....if I remove the 'shrink to fit' directive, I can post a new header but it comes out short of the page. I just did one to test, but don't necessarily want it there for a month..I'll fiddle more later.

I don't know if you remember, but I went through this a while back...exactly as you've stated. It is only the header that is a problem, as I've uploaded dozens of photos since then with no problem. I somehow ended up with the short header and cannot figure out how to change it!!! SO now it just looks dumb :) If you figure something out, let me know! Otherwise, I just get on with life :)
