Upload or Embed Pictures and Multimedia

Pretty much all blogs allow you to upload pictures to your posts. Some will also enable you to upload video and audio/mp3/podcasts. One significant factor here is that most people do not have video that is in a "Web ready" format. If that is the case, the video may be too large, which can result in the risk of spending money for space to host the video and the bandwidth that enables people to view it. A quick, easy, and free alternative is to post your video on a video site, like YouTube or Vimeo, and use their embed feature to embed the video into your site.
