How small are your websites, and do you believe that making your website small in file size is worth it?

According to various online website checkers I've used, my blog's homepage is around 140-160 KB in size. However, considering all files on disk, my entire blog is actually around 1.30 MB. It's all plain text files; any images I use are hosted on an image-sharing website.

I like having my blog load quickly, so I do believe it's worth making it as small as possible.

my websites are collectively around 1.04 GB in size according to neocities, but that's mostly due to running a pokemon website where i have multiple sets of assets containing graphics of every gen 1-2 pokemon (around 251 of them, + 25 extra unown forms) in both their normal and shiny colorations, which are essential to make certain javascript tools on the site work. in particular i host some decently high quality GIFs on the site of some 3D models of said pokemon, and both the normal and shiny folders for those take up ~215 MB on their own. since they're there partially for archival purposes, it was a bad idea to sacrifice the quality for less size. plus, there's a third folder for those 3D model GIFs that breaks them into vertical png spritesheets which is essential for yet another javascript tool, which is yet another 200+ MB. that being said, on no webpage are all of these images loaded at once (usually two at most), and overall the actual pages on the site are still very lightweight. i try to make sure images in my articles are compressed and whatnot. i don't host any media other than images and html/js files in particular. i could probably stand to downsize some of the images used in kiki's journal on our personal website a bit more, though those don't take up much overall space. it would just be nice for those journal entries to load a little faster and i don't think compressing them more would lose much.

My website is 29.23 MB and growing! it may be a little big but the site is heavily image littered , i love drawing my own assets and bringing my weird and complicated ideas to life!! I'm obsessed with image compression and i host my art elsewhere so the site is a lot smaller than what it could be.  :cheesy:

Mine sits at a quaint 43.48mb, which considering I haven't really thought about file size at all is actually pretty good imo.

I am currently sitting around 940 megabytes, mostly thanks to me archiving videos on that site.

... I probably should look into compression...

Mine is currently around 66MB. Most of that is taken up by the animation breakdown videos, coupled with the fact that I store two versions of every video: a high-res VP9 version and a lower-res (and larger) H.264 version for environments that don't support VP9 (which is really just Safari on iOS). So if you were to browse everything on my website it'd probably be much less than that.

just reached the 10 MB milestone a few months ago, probably because of the album covers in the lyrics category. could potentially reupload them smaller but right now I don't feel like that's something I should do Quickly.. on Neocities I have 1GB of space, and I've been working on my website for a little over four years, so it'll be a while before I'm out of space.

It's not the first time I'm trying to build something online, I've been using blogger, tumblr, write.as, etc but never got the proper feeling. It's about comics ans personal stuff so there's a ton of pictures. On Blogger I remember hitting the storage limit pretty quick, now I'm downsizing pictures to reduce the weight, as long as you can read the text you don't need a 4k HD picture to see the speck of dust on the page of the comic-book.

It helped me a lot and now my website only weight 68 Mo which is rather impressive for me since I'm relying a lot on pictures. want to keep it under 250 ideally I'll see where it goes in the future but I'm regularly deleting files I don't use, the growth isn't exponential.

I've exported this method on Mastodon so even with auto-deletion posts, I downsize pics and in the end I don't consume a ton of data for the instance storage.

Mine is 61Mb now - just increased by ~30Mb yesterday, when I added two more gallery pages containing 120 art scans between them (at web resolution, not print resolution).

That's over both of my sites, but the second site is text only, and holds an entire novel's worth of words. Because it hosts a novel.

Anyhow. The vast majority of the bulk on my website is my art. And I'm good with that. :happy:
