Hosting your content yourself

Yes, I know, creating a website seems like a complicated task at first. But trust me, if you’re the kind of person that uploads pictures to imgur on a daily basis, having your own little personal server might give you the opportunity to have an easy-to-use, fairly safe and personal tool to do just that. No need to learn HTML or any complicated language. What you need is to find a good web hosting service, find their least costy offers, and maybe use a CMS like WordPress if you would like to sort your pictures by albums, or build some kind of a graphical design around your pictures.
