But when the paid accounts do come out, users who want more features can upgrade. Which I think is part of the idea of having a structured account system.
And even when paid accounts are available, free users will still be getting 'the bad end of the deal', as you put it. It's the same on all the journal sites - other sites restrict the number of entries, pictures or interests that free users can have, and some dont allow you to search for journals.
Blurty free accounts are just slightly different in that they restrict different things - and you should remember that you dont need invite codes here, unlike most other journal sites.
I have a question about this though, if we were to get a paid account would we have to change our username? Because even though I'm on a freeuser account, I'd rather have that then have to change my username because I like it...
