This saddens me...

Unfortunately, my worst nightmare has happened yet again. Photobucket now is saying that I am using too much of their bandwidth to host my pictures with them. YIKES! Don't worry though...this time we have made the code versatile and your background will never be affected in the future.  I wish we had known about this fix before this happened, but we really had no idea it would happen again. Now we're ready!

If the background currently on your blog has an image saying your background will be removed you will just need to find your old background (or a new one) and grab the new code before August 1st. Please make sure to delete the old code as well.  If your background has the HBB tag your background is fine and ignore this warning! :)

I am so very sorry for the inconvenience.  As you may have realized this has happened to most major free background sites and it is a real big bummer.

If you cannot find your old background please email me with the old background code and I will give you the new code.

If you have questions or concerns please email me at contact@hotbliggityblog.com instead of writing a comment so I can have your contact info!

Thanks for all of your support in making my website what it is today!

  1. How annoying! It must have been a nightmare for you to change all the codes. Thanks for the great work and the great backgrounds too!

  2. Thanks for the heads up. I tried using one of the new codes, but I get an error message. It says "403 Forbidden The file removed due to violation of ImageShack Terms of Service or by user request". Am I doing something wrong?

  8. tried emailing you but it doesn't work- I just changed to this site since cutestblog had the same problem and made the change a few days ago. Wondering if I'm ok- not sure what day I did it. Any way to check?

  9. Thanks for the great backgrounds. I've been seeing strange things on other blogs and didn't understand why. And a BIG Thank You for making it so easy for the 'technically deficient' among us. You've made it very easy to make this change.

  20. one of the backgrounds I tried.. the code didn't work... the background didn't show up. it was the red background with the sunflower on the ribbon, so I just used a diff background instead

    ReplyDelete
  21. oh and thanks for the beautiful backgrounds and all you do!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thank you.

    And truly, no apology is needed. You make all this pretty stuff available for free, then when something beyond your control goes wrong, you fix it and provide clear, simple instructions about how to make it better.

    I can't be the only one thinking I should get this kind of service from people/companies I pay money to!

    ReplyDelete

  67. I switched my background code, but now on my blog it doesn't load. My background just shows up as white. I tried loading your other backgrounds and they will load but it takes 10 minutes. I'm pretty new to blogging, but I LOVE my background.. Here is my site, hopefully I can figure it out soon. my-life-song.blogspot.com

  73. Hi and thank you for all the creative blog backgrounds you supply!
    The little reminder box at the top of my blog must have found itself a home, because it doesn't want to leave even after I've changed my background and clicked on it several times. What should I do?
    Thanks for your help...have a great day!

  76. Thank you for explaining this...I could use some more help, though. My original background is not showing up anywhere and it was perfect!! Figures. Plus, I have forgotten how to remove the old code and where to place new code for the new background! I know how to get the code, just forgot where to add it! I hope someone can help me! Thanks so much...
