I guess that's the price of popularity.
Just got this email from my hosting company:
Dear Steve Garfield,Prior to covering the convention, I was cautious in how many new videos I posted here and how much I publicized them.
You have used 100% of your included monthly traffic of 5000 MB (5.00 GB).
Traffic above and beyond the free volume will be charged at the price shown on our Website.
Please note that you can check your current traffic usage in the Control Panel at any time, as well as set your own cost limit.

I wanted to make sure that I didn't exceed the monthly bandwidth allotment from my hosting company. I was under the false impression that my limit was 15 GB, when in fact as the email above shows, it is actually 5 GB.
For convention week, I decided to just go for it and post as much as I could and send the word out about it.
Well, the popularity of my video blog posts has been amazing.
Good thing it's now August. My extra bandwidth usage is only going to cost me $2.52. I hope I've got that calculation correct. ;-)
Now I'm looking into upgrading my package.
Video Blogging the convention was very fulfilling. I've gotten so much positive feedback. I'm looking forward to going through the rest of my convention footage and posting some more videos next week.
I wonder if anyone is interested in having me cover the RNC convention?
