Thanks for sharing your bandwidth-control tips!

And kindness begets kindness so your "great knitting karma" makes perfect sense.

=)

Kathleen

I've got some sympathy for you...I am being hotlinked too. sigh.

Emma

I get 600 'ish visitors [as in ''distinct hosts'' ],many of whom pay multiple visits.My pics are well compressed,but I'm going to start doing some as pop-ups.I limit to 3 posts per page and try to keep an uncluttered page.My bandwidth probs continue and I'm fed-up !
I do get a lot of hits via Google and my technically challenged mind thinks there's a connection...

u could also compress your photos down to smaller sizes. Not the width and height, but the file size. Most people save JPG's out as 100% quality, in most cases you can actually save it out as 80% or even 70% and save HALF the file size.

Also I wonder if your referal thingymabob is taking up bandwidth everytime we hit the page and it does its thang.

Susan

Sharon, have you tried hosting your pictures on a remote server?

k8et

hmm no ideas to help about the bandwidth. i should check mine.

of course todays post will probably increase it 200%. and it has nothing to do with my knitting update. ;o)

Many of we Typepad users are having trouble ALL OF A SUDDEN. It might be a Typepad problem. Norma, Teresa and I got letters this mornign saying that they are checking to see what the problem is. Let's hope! I'm NOT be hotlinked that I can see. I do post everyday and I'm using less that Katy, who doesn't post daily. It's all very confusing and a Typepad problem as far as I can tell. Let's keep on them about it!

Sarah Elizabeth

Hmmm....
You might try using photobucket.com for awhile, it's free- I would definately use it for ANY buttons, those are what get hotlinked the most.
O' course, I don't get 400 hits a day. But I did finish a shawl today, so there is still balm for this lonely heart..
:-P :-D
I get 20871 image hits a month. That is WAY WAY WAY more than my blog gets. Like waaaaaaaaaaay more. There's something rotten in Denmark!

Norma

Sharon, I just incorporated all those tips given to you by the users board. Cut my front page down to 3, since I usually have lonnnnng posts. I can't figure out how to do extended posts. I know I've seen the option before, but can't for the life of me find it now. Any idea?

Norma

Another idea that's flitting across my mind: Could it be something to do with the rings we're in? I just joined several of them within a relatively short period of time.....I'm just grasping for any ideas.

Lynette

Sharon, thanks for the tips. I'm going to check out our blog now.

Theresa

Sharon -- I don't know if this is helpful for you or not... since I am not a TypePad user. For my whole site I average somewhere between 7 and 10 Gb of bandwidth a month, most via my blog. I keep 5 days worth of posts on my front page and I tend to be on the picture heavy side -- usually 1-2 a day and most are somewhere between 15 kB and 50 kB.

Definitely save your JPGs in as low a quality as possible. I also use photoshop and I save mine at quality level 2. I don't think it makes much difference from a viewing perspective, but it does help keep the bandwidth mellower.
