One advantage of posterous is you can post from email. Email is always easy to get to, so you can quickly share a link or comment that way. In fact, I’m currently writing this on my phone in the subway. It does raise security issues though. Do they make sure the email really originated from you? That’s what I’ll check next.
Update: When I sent an email from PHP, they saved it as a draft so I could confirm it was really me. So they don’t have any gaping security hole.
Every now and then, I try out a new blogging service. I would like to be able to share links, comments and thoughts on the web. I normally use Facebook, but that limits the audience somewhat. I’m also planning on writing some longer posts, so I wanted to try a new platform. WordPress works fine, but I wanted something focused on speed. I thought about Twitter, but I decided the 140-character is too ridiculous. So I’m trying out Posterous!
