Photobucket

I am sorry that you have not been able to see my pictures. I did not know that Photobucket had a restriction on how many photos they would host. I am going to switch to a new host or upgrade within a day or two. I had over twenty thousand hits today and the biggest thing people will remember is that Photobucket didn't display the pictures. I probably was a bit too harsh in my original assessment of their service though because the number of hits so far exceeded what I usually get that even if I was aware of the limitations I probably would never have thought I would exceed it.

Glad to see your back. I figured you may have taken a few days off. That was a nice article of you in the paper. I look forward to your next post.

Temujin said...

Hello.com is really nice. I've been using it for some time now, and it is pretty easy.

ballmatic said...

Yahoo.com just picked you up on the front page. Get ready for the traffic!

Holloway said...

I agree with the previous post about hello.com... I found this blog from the front page piece on Yahoo! Probably won't be the last to do so. Good blog.

If you came to Wisconsin you could do 1,000 bars in 4 months.

RC said...

I just read bout you on Yahoo, good luck 1000 Bars, I think.

It must be hard to drink all those drinks whatever you are drinking, but I think I'm gona stick with one place to get my favorite drink, water from the sink.

I never had a problem with Photobucket, and my blog gets alot of visits from my blog friends, and my pictures are still up.

Have a nice day 1000 Bars, and drink some water for me!

[you dont even need an account]

hit 1000 soon!
by the way, have you planned how much you'd be spending if you were to have drinks in all these 1000 bars? haha. a whole lot of money.

lucidstates said...

Hey, just read about you via Yahoo's Home Page ... Congrats on the enormous coverage. Just wanted to thank you for doing this in a day and age when smoking, drinking or other freedoms are fast becoming taboos again in this country. You're just chillin' and having a good time, that's cool. Also, when this is done, you could write a book and make recoup your costs+ ;-) Again, right on and keep up the steady pace, man :-)

You must have a very big stomach, do you?

I can never visit 1000 bars for a 1000 drinks, but maybe eat a 1000 Suzi-Q's, I think.

I hope you don't get sick like my big brother, because I'm not gona clean up your room, your too far!

I hope your venture is successful. Only wish I thought of it first.

Do you have any plans on coming to Indiana?

pL said...

Hey, just ran across yer blog, and it made me think of this one. Check it out if you have time! .

pL said...

Here it is again: I'll never get the hang of this stuff.

We Travel by Joey said...

Go to Modblog.com and you won't have to wory about bandwidth on images. Or maybe use Flickr to store images.

We Travel by Joey said...

Oh and here it the link:
http://www.modblog.com
For Flickr:
http://www.flickr.com

Since you are on Google, you might wnt to try Picasa and Hello for images (both owned by Google). But I think Modblog is the best way to go.

Crysania said...

I think photobucket offers unlimited bandwith and storage space for a yearly fee of something like $25. Well worth it, IMO. If you ever take a jaunt up to Syracuse, stop by in the afternoon on the 2nd or 4th Saturday of the month to Kitty Hoyne's on Fayette St. Great music, great beer, and just a great atmosphere. Good luck in your quest!

Scott said...

if you ever come by way of nashville, shoot me a line at http://www.scottrandolph.net, we'll take you out "honky-tonkin" for a few days.

good luck!

AndyOfVermont said...

Saw you in MSN news. Interesting endeavor! Don't be too hard on photobucket. The site is programmed to automatically stop at so much bandwidth (bandwidth is spensive). Ya never know, they migth pay you to stay since you're all famous now and all that. ;)

Tatha said...

hi bar man..saw ur coverage on yahoo front page rt. now(Man 1/2 Way in Quest to Visit 1,000 Bars")...innovative idea & great tempo....sounds like Forest Gump's running achievement...did someone tell u "drink bar man!drink!" (like "run Forest run!!" )? :-)

McBoozo the Clown said...

Love your site! Good luck in the mission. Imageshack seems to work well for photo hosting, you might want to give it a shot. If you're ever in Michigan look me up, I'd love to meet with you for a cold one.

Hey I saw your blog thru MSNBC and I think is great. In regards to Photobucket, I have a suggestion....why don't you try flickr.com? is a good service and it's free. Think about it!

Bye bye ;)

SugarNSpice said...

I could visit the bars, but I'd have to pass on beer. I'll take a sprite instead.

Do you have any other goals?

Kurt N. said...

Photobucket?? flickr, my friend.

kathrynhowlswithwolves said...

I don't have any advice, especially since I'm a new blogger.

I will have to see the places you have been. As for me, I've just tried one of the microbrewery beers in Asheville, NC - pretty good stuff. Listened to celtic music and ate some pretty decent food.

I've lived in Louisiana for many years, before I moved to my mountain here in NC, and one can't live in Louisiana without the party finding you, the beer especially, and well, with N'awlins right around the corner, you can imagine (and if you can't and haven't - make it a stop).

Good luck on your quest. Many will envy you. I, however, am loving my log house on amountain where I write novels and other genius works (*grin*)

Ovedya said...

Try using Geocities for your pictures. You'll probably exceed bandwidth the first month or so, considering how many hits you're going to get from MSN. But your traffic will taper off eventually.

You're going to run into trouble using the free services anyhow, considering the fact that your story has been picked up by "big media."

Cheers!

B2 said...

Wow, that sucks. So you just exceeded the bandwidth, and now no photos show up?

ShamiltheITguy said...

Hey you, should take your new found interest in your quest and hold a fund raiser for a charity at your 1000th bar, its just a suggestion.

Paul said...

You gotta use flickr! As for your quest, myself and the other developers that I work with have decided that when we retire, we'll do what you have done. Except that maybe we'll double the number of bars:-) Regards!

Paul said...

I just looked at photo bucket. Upgrade your account for $25.00 for the year. Add google ads to your blog and it will probably easily pay for itself!! The images are already there.

Curt said...

A more noble quest I have yet to discover. Keep it up, my good man. There are so few heroes these days...

pjammer said...

May want to have everything powered by AutoBlogger and free you to keep visiting bars. :)

Jack the blogger said...

Bar Man I read about you in the Connecticut Post on Sunday. If you want to come to Bridgeport I'll buy you one.

The Clarkes said...

Hey, if you decide to do 1000 bars accross the country, let me know when you come through Des Moines, Iowa. We'll have a couple pints. Cheers!

UKYBlogger said...

Hey man, you got picked up by the Associated Press now, you're going to get so many hits it'll probably shut your site down. Good luck on the bars...if you're ever in Lexington, Kentucky meet me at McCarthy's Irish Pub or Pazzo's Pub.
