To celebrate the New Year we decided to offer you more space for your precious media.
Our previous space upgrade levels have been increased without any additional cost for you as follows:
- 5GB → 10GB
- 15GB → 25GB
- 25GB → 50GB
- 50GB → 100GB
- 100GB → 200GB
If you already subscribed to one or more of these upgrades ( yes, they are cumulative ), your total available space has been automatically updated as you can see in your Media Library.
If you don’t have a Space Upgrade yet, or need to add more, the new levels have been implemented in the Store section of your dashboard.
The Space Upgrade of course gives you more space to store your photos, and docs, but it also enables you to upload audio files, which makes it perfect for podcasts, MP3s, or any audio format.
We don’t even limit your bandwidth, and we’ll keep your files as long as your blog exists.
If you want to learn more about these upgrades, feel free to visit our space upgrades support page.
But wait, there’s more…
For those of you with a private blog, we lifted the previous limit of 35 users allowed to access it. From now on, you can add as many authorized users as you wish, from the Settings → Privacy section of the dashboard.
We hope you’ll enjoy these new features, and we wish you and your WordPress.com site all the best for 2012!

Managing photos and media in general in a WordPress.com blog is a chore. When are we getting an update on those lines?

It’s nice and great, thank you…
Jan 6th at 4:31 pm
I’m relatively new to WordPress, but find it attractive, effective, and almost effortless, though I use the many tutorial videos available. For all that and the additional space I am grateful.
More than that I’m heartened by the many positive comments in response to your announcement of ‘even more space in 2012.’ Pretty classy people compared to those who more than often leave heedless and thankless comments of response.
Jan 6th at 4:34 pm
Jan 6th at 4:43 pm
Wow, thanks, that’s very generous of you!
Jan 6th at 4:56 pm
Thanks wordpress thats cool…… Happy New Year! You guys and gals rock
Jan 6th at 5:22 pm
Thank you all for your eye on continuous innovation and improvement; you continue to raise the bar. I appreciate it! [And many businesses could learn from it.]
Jan 6th at 5:23 pm
Jan 6th at 5:29 pm
This is terrific. I had already been talking up WordPress.com to anyone who would listen for highly affordable, super-dependable audio blogging and podcasting. Now I’ll be even more uninhibited in my touting of your freemium services. Thanks, and keep up the good work.
Jan 6th at 5:34 pm
those are indeed beautiful words, WordPress! thank you. You are indeed helping me make a living here.
Jan 6th at 5:53 pm
This is great news! You don’t hear too much about “Free” upgrades these days, so thanks!
Jan 6th at 6:05 pm
Awesome news ! Thank you guys
Jan 6th at 6:09 pm
Thank you! Loving it!
Jan 6th at 6:17 pm
Wow! Thank you!!! Thank you!!! What a wonderful new year surprise, WordPress!!
Jan 6th at 6:21 pm
Jan 6th at 6:30 pm
I remember when we thought 1 GB was a lot of space lol, oh, did I just date myself?
Jan 6th at 7:07 pm
Ahh….thank you so very much WP! A great New Years presant
Jan 6th at 7:12 pm
Thanks to you, Paolo Belcastro! Much like a quality street drug, WordPress continues to lure me into greater addiction with new freebies, righteous widgets, and highly functional themes. As I explore every possible bell and whistle of my WordPress blogosphere, I grow helpless to resist the inevitable gravitational pull to your massive professional upgrade. Oh yes, I am your demographic, baby, and am damn proud to say so.
Jan 6th at 7:28 pm
Thank you WordPress
Jan 6th at 7:34 pm
Do I use too much space? How would I know about this? Who can tell me if i really need to upgrade? Tks. thedoghouse
Jan 6th at 9:27 pm
What a wonderful gift to the WordPress world! Awesome!
Jan 6th at 9:48 pm
This is why I love wordpress!
Jan 6th at 9:56 pm
Thank you WordPress

Jan 7th at 12:18 am
Wow! Now I’m really tempted to buy a space upgrade.
Jan 7th at 12:25 am
Yesss! You’re not seeing it, but I”m totally doing a fist pump here.
Jan 7th at 12:39 am
Well this was unexpected! Thank you very much!
Jan 7th at 1:43 am
“5GB → 10GB
15GB → 25GB
25GB → 50GB
50GB → 100GB
100GB → 200GB”
So, what would be the cost for 12 GB, which falls between the 10GB and 15GB price levels?
Jan 7th at 2:16 am
I love this upgrade! Thank you so much, WP.
Jan 7th at 3:14 am
Great news For WordPress Users. Thanks a lot. WordPress Rocks!:-)
Jan 7th at 3:14 am
I noticed this as I was uploading photos and I thought I was seeing things! This is so awesome, thank you so much!
Jan 7th at 3:42 am
It is nice of you to have increased the space. Really, this wonderful act of yours will spur the writers to write more and more to make wordpress.com
Jan 7th at 5:27 am
Great news, thanks word press
Jan 7th at 5:40 am
Good content addition! But if wordpress add value addition also for readers who opt for it, it will be nice and best! Choice can be asked by wordpress for every member.
Wordpress should strive hard to arrange for some reveneue income by adding universal advts in the website of members and thus becoming one of the top website in the world!
We will hail for the victory of WordPress in 2012 !

Jan 7th at 12:45 pm
I live in a country where there are no credit cards, my question is how can one buy more space where there are no credit cards. I live in Liberia where we only have western union. I highly appreciate the wordpress family for their wonderful services they continue to render the world. It is indeed a blessing to me, my friends and my country at large. Thank you wordpress.
