Oh, I have a question: When we're going to post our freebies that we make for each challenge - Where's the best way to share them? I usually use 4shared - but is there a better place? (Don't mention Mediafire - I'm allergic to their pop-ups )

I like box.net. It's got smaller file size limit (25MB) but so much more convenient & less trouble for Designers & downloaders alike.

So, you think 4shared is better? If you download a lot you can have to wait for a long time before you can download. Don't know what's worst

Oh, I know, I hate when I only have an hour to download of free time each morning when I get up, and most of it is used up waiting on 4shared to count down...ugh.

Last year I used box.net and I liked it okay. I have noticed with some contests though a kit gets downloaded so often that the owner is out of bandwidth. I guess that wouldn't matter so much this year with no public vote but it was a voter turn-off for sure last year.

I pay $10.95 a month to Dreamhost to host my blog and that's where I will be uploading my files to. My Dreamhost account gives me way more storage and bandwidth than I could possibly use and has all sorts of other installs like a photo gallery. You can do an email list, newsletter, etc.... If you want more info you can private message me here or email me at mollyscraps4fun at gmail dot com.
