There has been much discussion

There has been much discussion amongst UKBloggers of the 100kB per month limit to postings through BloggerPro before the excess usage surcharge kicks in. Well, my usage stats look like this:

As you can see, I’ve tripped over the limit this month, not because I’ve suddenly become more verbose, but because I’ve launched two new (private) blogs for my college colleagues to post our collaborative work on. By their nature, posts to these blogs are very long indeed (each would be equivalent to at least one side of A4).
The thing is, I don’t actually have a major problem with the surcharge – after all, it is only $3 (around ¬£2) per month. But maybe Ev should have set BloggerPro with a slightly higher charge and a higher inclusive postings limit? I also wonder what happens if we start using the new file upload feature of BloggerPro – will that count towards the limit? If so, then 100kB will be reached very quickly by anyone with a photolog.
