Although I would think that most of us use a CDN including myself but do you not use one for some reason?
I try not to use CDN cause you rely on a third party to host your scripts for you, and if anything happens, it'll take your site down with it.

Especially considering that most sites now require a whole host of scripts to be usable.
I use a CDN for my biggest blog. I use it for images. It helps me, but it's from a reliable source that I pay to host there.

Cloudflare on everything else. I've noticed more uptime using them to be honest.
