My site was down most of the night because my bandwidth got exceeded and this was something that never happened to me before. I felt like Zechariah after he had doubted God. Though it was good thing to get linked by Mark Shea, Michelle Malkin, and an New York Times editorial roundup in the space of a day it exceeded the 22 gigs I am allowed for my account. My hosting service Tranquil Hosting nicely upped my bandwidth to 25 gigs so I should be okay now, though I might do some site redesign to keep me from going over the top again. I would warmly recommend Tranquil Hosting as a web host because I have received great service from them. Problems are taken care of promptly and their prices are very reasonable.
I have a solution for your bandwidth blues. Stop writing such funny stuff. Or at least ration it to one every other day.
You could also limit the number of posts on the front page to like 10 or something. You could also set it up so it only shows the first paragraph or two of your posts — particularly those image-heavy — and force users to click on a “more” link or something similar.
May God protect me from being noticed by the likes of Mark Shea 🙂
Did you really get linked by the New York Times? What’s the url of the link?
