I started tracking my database storage and I've found that it's getting out of hand. My provider only allows 100MB storage per database and as of right now, I am hovering around 35MB, depending on how many people are accessing our site. It seems that we're getting around half a meg for each post we create and we average around 2 a day. At this rate, our database will be full by April.
Is it normal for a post to command that much space?
I use Disqus for our comments system, could this be the culprit?
Is there any way to use two databases for one wordpress blog?
I know the ultimate solution is to use a dedicated server, but >$50 a month seems steep considering I'm using much cheaper hosting and not really making money with the site yet. Any suggestions on ways to help this issue would be much appreciated it.
