Since you're asking for an alternative I thought I'd give my two cents. Our company receives files from a customer via Secure Dropbox from Thru. It's considered a Dropbox alternative and offers high-security features like encryption and antivirus scanning.


I haven't been able to find a way to load Dropbox URLs over HTTP but it is possible to load Google Fonts over HTTPS, and that will prevent the browser from blocking the request. For example: <link href='https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:400' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>


Since recently, a Dropbox update makes it so that people can see your full first and last name on files that you share publicly. https://blogs.dropbox.com/dropbox/2015/04/commenting-now-available/


Dropbox is intended for file sharing, not really web hosting and will even limit the traffic to your site if it gets too much traffic. If you are just trying to host some kind of blog I suggest using a blogging platform such as Wordpress that allows you to create a free blog.
