Posterous.com is a blog service that lets you create a blog site, post entries, and respond to comments, using email.
“Posterous lets you post things online fast using email. You email us at email@example.com and we reply instantly with your new posterous blog. … If you can use email, you can have your own website to share thoughts and media with friends, family and the world.” [Posterous]
The format for sending a post is as follows:
- Subject Line = Post title
- Text Area = Post content
You can also attach any type of file to your email, including (but not limited to) photos, MP3s, documents, and video links.
One can say that Posterous is similar to Tumblr (tumblr.com), but Posterous makes it more simple to create an account, post entries, and respond to comments, all via email.
For the curious, my Posterous blog is ced.posterous.com.
