    Amen, Preach it Sista! And I LOVE your blog redesign, especially the wallpaper in the background. Just lovely!

    When you put images in a post, you can upload the photo from your own hard drive (aka “box”), or you can link it using a URL.

    If you link to an image and someone hits your post, it also hits the URL of the image, which uses that person’s bandwidth to call it. That person will get charged extra if he goes over his bandwidth allowance for the month.

    It’s kind of like hooking into your neighbor’s cable from the utility pole.
