So That's What HotLinking Means.
Before I understood what Hotlinking was, it seems I did it in my older blog posts--AKA December ones. In other words, instead of just saving an image and uploading it to blogger from my PC, I would use the function where you can enter the image's URL and it will show. The problem with that is the original source can change at any time--thereby altering the picture, and more rudely, you are essentially leeching bandwidth off of others. I plan to go to these older posts from before I changed my methods and stop hot-linking. My apologies if I did it to you and it caused any issues as I know it can be annoying and bad web etiquette. Just wanted to update folk on that.
