I am currently looking for a software engineering internship, focusing on web development. I have built a couple of projects, but have not hosted them yet. Is it a nice idea to write the blog, including all the projects with photos and links to GitHub, instead of hosting each project individually? How would it look to the employer?

This a delayed response, but hopefully better late than never!

Every company is different, but from my understanding it would be better to have your projects hosted so that potential employers can interact with your app or website, if they would like to, and see how your code runs. This is of course in addition to your Github. You can even link to your project from your Github repositories. I use heroku to host my projects and have a link to the projects in that project's repo. If you also have a portfolio site, or a LinkedIn or AngelList account, or some other professional networking site that has your resume on it, you should be able to link your Github and hosted projects to those as well. This way everything is one place and nicely organized for the potential employers.
