What are the Space Limitations on Blogger?

Wandering Chopsticks asked me a question in a comment below about how much space you can use on Blogger. She was concerned because she had already used 33% of her space.

That's a great question, Chopsticks.

My understanding is that there is no limit...however, there is a limit to how much you can put on one page. The limit is 1 MB.

If you have your opening page set up to show a lot of posts, you could run out of space for that page. Luckily, it's very easy to correct.

Just go into "Settings", then "Formatting" and set a lower number of posts to show on the front page. Mine is set at 7.

Have you ever gone to a blog without music or video, yet it took a long time to load?The odds are pretty good that the blogger was allowing an entire month (or even more!) of posts to load on the front page. It can be very frustrating for readers with a slow connection.

Chopsticks, where did you see how much you have used?

Was it while you were posting like this? (you may have to click on it to read)

Because I think this just shows what is left for that page.

I am not 100% positive about all of this so if anyone knows more, please jump right in and give us the scoop!


  1. Hi Zoey,

    It's not page load, it's available storage space on blogger. B/c photos are now also uploaded onto Picasa, you only get the 1024 MB photo storage for free. I've reached 27% right now after about 6 months of active blogging. I figured you've been blogging for much longer and have all those lovely garden photos so you would be close to your limit. But maybe not and I'm just posting too many photos or something!

    Of course, blogger gives the upgrade option of 6 GB of storage for $25/year. But I'm cheap, I'd like to avoid paying for anything if possible.

  2. Hi Zoey,
    OK, maybe I'm misreading this? My photo upload page says I have 1024 MB. But Picasa web albums says I have 1 GB. So is the space limitation only if we also want the blogger photos to show up on Picasa web albums? I'm referring to what's on this link

  3. I think we must all have the same amount. Mine says 1024 also and I've used 10%.
    I never noticed that number before.

  4. Chopsticks, When I read about the Picasa web album, I thought it was optional. I have never loaded mine on the picasa web album.

    I think you're right that it's the Picasa album that's giving you the limit.

    Susie, Yes, we all have the same amount for the page limit.


I appreciate you taking the time and effort to leave a comment. I will try to answer any questions you have. Please note due to Blogger changing word verification so almost nobody can read it, I have had to change to no word verification and only allow registered users to comment.
