Before I finally start blogging there's one last question that I need help with. My blog will be photo-focused. We're talking about 70-80% of photos compared to 20-30% of text. There might be some posts with up to 60 photos a ~200KB/file (~600px width). I might also provide a clickable link to a larger version of the photo (using Lightbox or just leading to an external image host gallery).
My problem is that I don't yet quite fully understand what the best environment for a Wordpress blog is and thus I'm not sure if it's better to upload all the photos to my webhost, where also my Wordpress blog is hosted or if that's only slowing down the website and using an external image host, a CDN or whatever else is out there might be the better option?
What's my best bet?
As for image hosts, there are so many out there that it's difficult to choose from, so if that's a good way to do it, I'd be glad to hear some recommendations, especially those that will work well with Wordpress, of course.
Thanks a lot in advance.
