Gilding is at a bit of a conundrum. If you’ll scroll down the page you’ll notice that most of Gilding’s lovely images have been replaced by Photobucket’s ugly “Exceeds Bandwidth” sticker. On the one hand that ugly intrusion means that you readers have made Gilding the Lily rather popular. Popular enough at least to, well, exceed the bandwidth. On the other hand, that means that if Gilding doesn’t want this to happen every month that she’ll have to start forking out money to pay for an increase in bandwidth with Photobucket. That means forking out money for a blog that doesn’t make money. But without the images, Gilding the Lily isn’t so popular. Popular, but not that popular. That could be interpreted as either without the images the blog isn’t as I catching in the great wide web. Or, that no one really wants to read Gilding’s rants–but the pictures are pretty! Its ok, Gilding knows the truth of the matter. No need to lie to sooth her ego. You can do that with monetary donations and all will be forgiven.
Anyhoo, just be a little patient. Remember, Gilding is a college student. Which means she’s fucking poor. The pictures will be back up at the end of the month when her bandwidth limit resets. We’ll have to see just how long it takes to run up the bandwidth at that point. In the meantime, Gilding will be thinking about what she wants to do–spend money and starve for her art of ranting on the interweb. Or deal with this rude intrusion in her creative process by Photobucket.
Love me, hold me, keep my blog warm in the cold, cold bareness of no images.
