This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Use a 3rd party service like gisthub or pastebin. There are plenty to choose from. – Ciaran Aug 2 '11 at 5:02

You can use a free account at http://box.net or Ubuntu One to upload and share .zip files, but unless you have a LOT of code that you want to share, you're probably better off embedding your code samples into your posts.

Wordpress now supports posting source code on blogs hosted through their site:

While WordPress.com doesn’t allow you to use potentially dangerous code on your blog, there is a way to post source code for viewing. We have created a shortcode you can wrap around source code that preserves its formatting and even provides syntax highlighting for certain languages [...]

Thanks. Sometimes it's just needed to post the entire project. I previously used dropbox but I was looking for another solution. – Alireza Noori Aug 3 '11 at 0:38
