Why should I consider using an external service to store my images and documents?

You have 30 MB of upload space. This may not be enough space if you are uploading large pdf files or images it may be preferable to use an outside service that you can integrate with UMW Blogs such as Flickr for your photos or DivShare for your files. This is probably the best practice, for if you ever want to move your blog to another service you will have persistent link to documents and images that you will not have to update to the new blog URL.
