First a question for you. Where do you store your website's or post images and other icons/ avatars?
Many people use third party’s web servers to store their images, icons etc. If you are a blogger and using Google’s Blogger platform then why you don’t use Google’s Picasa web albums. Picasa is a place where you can store your all images for life time. Google’s blogger service stores all images in Picasa.
