Is your Media Library feeling crowded? I’m betting our new space upgrade levels might help.
Based on feedback we received from our users, we decided to add two new space upgrade options: 50GB and 100GB.
To access either of these upgrade levels, go to your blog’s dashboard and click on Upgrades. Select the space upgrade that you want to purchase. It’s super simple. Price information is included on this page, too.
After your purchase is complete, go to your Media Library. You will see that the upload space remaining for your blog has been increased. Enjoy!
You might be asking yourself “Why do I need a space upgrade?”
Our space upgrades support page can explain it better, but space upgrades allow you to upload music in addition to images. You cannot upload audio files or music without the space upgrade.

I want to add one audio file. Why should I pay for it 20 bucks a year?
May 15th at 11:44 pm
Will this space upgrade expire every year as the others do?

This sound great news and thanks for the update
May 16th at 6:21 am
Why dont you people increase the space available by default to something like 20 GB or atleast a tenner??
That would be wonderful.
May 16th at 6:48 am
Great, this one’s cool!
May 16th at 7:03 am
Siiipp… Thanks a lot

For me Its not so much space that I need need for our media library but the ability to put content into separate folders would be a great addition that way images that are used repeatedly can be easily found .

That’s really awesome! Thanks : )

Upgrades are great, but the downloads “exports” from the blogs are still not working and timing out. When are you guys going to fix those and include the “google search” so that archives can be retrieved. The current “search” stinks.

100GB for a blog? I just started but I would not know how to come close to that
May 17th at 11:56 am
great but I don’t have the money!
May 17th at 12:52 pm
We will switch over to WordPress.org over the next month. We will miss this nice and friendly Community for sure.
May 17th at 1:03 pm
Awesome! Since I plan to add pictures to my blog, this is a welcome upgrade. And music, too…. Think of the possibilities….

Re:- “You cannot upload audio files or music without the space upgrade.”
Is that because you don’t think we’d have enough room or you won’t permit it? Not that I want to, just curious, as I reckon I have enough space for a few small audio files. An mp3 track, for example would be about, what, half a meg?
Could you clarify please.
May 17th at 6:31 pm
Option to add music with space upgrade is enticing. Thanks.
May 17th at 7:14 pm
I thought I didn’t want space upgrades, but now that I clicked this link I’m thinking about it so that I can post audio files and the like and subject my readers to some dodgy looped tracks I knocked up on Garage Band. Sold!….

Not being a huge multimedia blog, it will be *years* before I come anywhere close to using up the free 3G of space that WordPress.com offers. It’s cool that people who need it know it will be there for them when the time comes.
May 17th at 10:59 pm
awesome! I don’t use it really cause I mostly post form URL but its nice to know!
May 18th at 5:05 am
Ah, now all I need to do is to rob a bank somewhere. You go guys!!!!
May 18th at 7:15 am
I still have more than 95% of free space !
May 18th at 3:48 pm
Adding music might be nice, but I think for those upgrade prices that it just makes way more sense to upload images/videos elsewhere (like Flickr, Youtube) and embed them into posts… Anymore, I think the people that need that kind of space already have cheaper ways of getting it.
May 18th at 7:32 pm
ty so much i plan to add music to my blog and also more photos soo ty soo muchhhhhhhhhhhhh
May 18th at 9:04 pm
oh, I thought you have given more space to free accounts, when are you going to do that?
May 20th at 3:46 am
One thing about WordPress.com, you can have 100 GB of media files and the speed of your site will always be the same: fast!
May 20th at 2:00 pm
Neat’o… I like it – I want to use this feature.
May 20th at 11:04 pm
Wow! This is really cool! B)
May 20th at 11:05 pm
Sweet this upgrade is awesome!

I’ve been using wordpress because it’s what I was first introduced to – and was hyped as being great. Unfortunately – a lot of what I’m seeing leaves me disappointed. The themes available (for example) are dismal in comparison to Blogger – which allows you to plug in any theme you want, edit CSS, etc. for free – rather than being stuck with what’s on a list (it’s nice to see recent improvements there, but there’s still a lot of room for growth). Of course, this is what I hear from friends who use the service – I have yet to test it out for myself. I’m beginning to wonder what the hype is about.
I like the program, but there seem to be a lot of restrictions unless I want to start paying. I feel like we’re being nickel and dimed for what other blogging programs provide for free.
I hope there can be some improvements there.

May 23rd at 12:55 pm
Options, options, options. Love having choices !
May 24th at 3:24 pm
I must collect the money first! ^__^
May 26th at 6:34 pm
I look forward to needing that much space. I’m just starting out.
May 27th at 1:25 am
