  1. Hey Sidharth, This is very cool! My daughter’s hard drive crashed today and she was very scared that she lost her pictures. She just found out about 10 minutes ago that Dropbox had backed up her pictures automatically from her computer. She is at the moment the World’s Biggest Dropbox fan!

    Great explanation about how to use Dropbox to attach images to your blog. Would you do this to speed up your blog? What are the advantages of doing this instead of uploading the images to your blog?

    Thanks for this great article!

  2. Well this is pretty interesting. I had no idea you could even do this! Although, I’m not too sure why you’d want to – I suppose loading images from Dropbox instead of your own server would reduce the load on your server a little bit.
