It's actually easier to update on Steam...
If you release an update on Steam, everyone who has your mod gets that update automatically rather than having to hunt this thread down to find an updated link.
Not to mention Steam is a much safer site than Sharemods.

Yeah, but what about those people who don't have Steam? They can't download my mods via Steam, so for them there has to be an other way to download my mods. One of those ways is Sharemods. Another way might be Google Drive. Etc. And I know Sharemods is not perfect, but it's doable.

<edit>
Of course you have to have Steam if you want to play ATS. But as I also have mods for ETS2 I have to take into account those people who have the legacy non-Steam version of ETS2.

if people dont have steam they also dont have ATS, there shouldnt be any problem, only ETS2 has it and even there it is only less then 1%

No real point going out of your way to cater to less than 1% of players.
If you want easy, Steam Workshop is it.

Just curious: where is stated that less than 1% of the players play the non-Steam version?

SCS said it, they have the statistics, users of non steam version are so small it is negligible

Which is exactly why they only released ATS on Steam and are thinking about no longer releasing updates or DLC for ETS2 outside of Steam.

But for everyone who generally plays offline, it's better the sharemods option.

True. Steam can be finicky in Offline mode.
At that point, though, there are so many better alternatives for file sharing. One such alternative was already brought up.
