As a web developer, you should absolutely host your own website. I can think of a few good reasons for doing so:
0: The experience of configuring and maintaining a web server.
1: You can use third-party or custom libraries.
2: It's much more convenient to work with local files and databases.

On the downside, there is the issue of security and backups. If you host your own site, you should be prepared for attacks from the outside world. Follow best practices for security...rename/disable the Administrator account, use strong passwords, etc...

You may want to look into IIS 8 Express to replace the 7.5 that comes with Win7. It's a little faster and has some extra security features.

I have one site web hosted and one self hosted. The web hosted site is mostly static pages and links to downloads. (the heavy lifting) The self-hosted site serves out around 20 customer reporting applicatios and demos. Good luck!
