Recently we got an email from Photobucket.com, who hosted all of our background images, letting us know that we were one of the top 50 of their 700million account holders in popularity. All of our fabulous users (you) put us right at the top of all of the other blog background sites out there, so thank you! As cool as this news was, it also presented a bit of an issue for us and photobucket: Money.
So this left Becky and I in a pickle, as Photobucket could no longer foot the bill for our bandwidth usage. We searched high and low for other ways to host your backgrounds in an affordable way so that we could continue to do what we love. After racking our brains, we found a new permanent place to call home for all of your images! Yay!
The next step in this process is for us to remove all of the images from being hosted on photobucket. This will be happening on Friday, July 23rd, 2010. This will automatically remove the background from your blog (unless you have purchased a custom blog design).
Let’s look at the bright side: This gives you the chance to go back to our site and check out all of the pretty new designs we have there and choose your favorite for a fresh new blog design. Don’t worry, you’ll find all of the ‘past’ popular designs are still there too. We know you’ll find something you love!
We want to thank all of our fabulous, good looking, smart, and totally awesome fans for sticking with us through everything. Becky and I are genuinely so excited to continue to offer you free cute designs for your blogs!!!

PS: The warning tag on your backgrounds will be removed from your blog on Friday once everyone has gotten a chance to informed about the background change.
PSS: If you are having problems getting on our site, keep trying! Our server is having issues with all the traffic! Thanks:)!
