Those of you using Photobucket for your articles will want to know that the company now wants $399.99 per year to continue hosting your photos.

 

Not to worry, just use promotion code "summerfun" to reduce the cost to $360!

 

Prepare for many broken photo links on this site.

The Internet is a challenge for business models. It appears that PhotoBucket believes that they have built enough of a potential market that they can finally make money.  I point out that Amazon has never made a profit.  About 25 years ago, I served twice on the the board of the East Lansing Food Co-Operative, ELFCO.  I chose the Finance committee for my assignment and I was dismayed by the Profit and Loss Statement.  "How do we stay in business?" I asked.  The accountant replied, "A positive cash flow covers a lot of sins."  So, I trust that Photobucket will be a resource for professionals who can justify the expense of whatever superior service Photobucket is going to offer.  (We can only hope...)

Marotta: I point out that Amazon has never made a profit.

 

That is false. Amazon has made a profit 8 of the last 10 years. Link. You may see only 5 years; as a subscriber I can see 10.
