Strange question – I’ve always hosted my drawings that I post on my blog on my personal website so that I could see the stats via my website. Most of my friends upload their photos directly to blogspot. I’m in the vast minority of people I know who host their own photos, so I’m wondering – is there any benefit to not hosting my own photos?
How exactly are you hosting your own images? You have paid hosting and domain I’m guessing?
Since they’re drawings you might take them the extra mile by hosting them on deviantART. That way you won’t get the stress on your monthly bandwidth and your work will get a lot more exposure at the same time.
