I Hate Being Popular!!

I had an elaborate post planned out for today, but that will have to wait.  Why?  Because I'm freaking out.  Why?  Because apparently I'm popular and that makes me sad.

I came to my blog today and THIS is what I see!
WHAT THE HECK??!?!  It seems PhotoBucket has replaced ALL of my blog images with this $&#*$&@ image letting me know that "I'm popular." 

AGH!!!!!!!!!!  I RARELY use PhotoBucket so I knew that I couldn't have exceeded any photo limits there, but apparently it says that I've exceeded bandwidth limits because I'm "so" popular.  I'm not buying it.  My little old blog is NOT that popular.

But, in a freak of panic, I went ahead and PAID to upgrade for the YEAR.  And, still no bloggy pictures, just the @$%(#&# "popular" image still!!

Has anyone ever had this happen?  What did you do?  I'm so sad.  I sent a message to PhotoBucket, but have yet to hear back from them.  Not a happy camper....especially after PAYING them.  My blog designer set everything up in PhotoBucket for my blog design, but is there a different {better} site I should be using?

It says that my bandwidth will reset in 10 days, but I can't spend 10 days like this.....HELLLLLLLP!!


  1. Several bloggers I follow wrote about the same problem. I hope they resolve the problem and refund your money ASAP...definitely sounds like something on their end.

    I will go back to google reader now, as this screen is giving me a headache!

  2. Yes! I have the same problem! But, yours is really out of control. You poor thing! You can try this fix: http://honeybunchblogdesign.blogspot.com/2013/02/photobucket-fix.html

    But, it didn't work for me. May work for you, though! Good luck!

  3. Oh that sucks! I'm sorry I don't know how to resolve this problem. I noticed it a few times on my blog. Each time I've used photobucket it has been a frustrating experience. I downloaded a program called Visual Watermark. I use it to first resize and secondly watermark my photos before uploading them directly into blogger.


  4. That does not look like fun. I hope you find a way to be 'unpopular'. :) I wish I could help.

  5. Apparently, I'm popular, too! I'm having the same problem on my blog! Right now, I'm on Internet Explorer and I'm not seeing any Photobucket ads at all on your blog. Mine is covered with them on IE but not on Google Chrome...go figure?

    This tutorial has helped some solve the problem:

    It didn't work for mine, but hope it helps for yours!

  6. I had some of those annoying photobucket signs on my blog, too, so I sent a message to blogger about it. I think somehow our blogs were "hacked". Anyway, within a few hours of contacting blogger, the pb images were gone - phew! So hoping the problem has been resolved for everyone.

  7. So sorry this is happening!! Hope you find the fix--fast!

    On another note, so glad I noticed your SC blogger button... I added a VA one! What a fun idea!!
