WHY POSTEROUS IS AWESOME!

I used to write only to my Blogger blog.  It is a good program, and I still use it.  But Posterous is becoming my favorite way to blog.  Here's why.

  1. It is done through email.  (Yes there are disadvantages like control of picture placement, consistent tagging, etc.).
  2. It posts quickly.  Usually in under 10 seconds.
  3. BUT HERE'S THE KICKER: It automatically sends my post (or a link to it) to Twitter, Blogger (which resends to Twitter about an hour later), Facebook, and email.
Why is that important?  Because my network of friends, colleagues, and PLN use different social networking sites.  By using Posterous, I can post once, and get things to all places where "my people" are.  I receive comments from readers through Twitter, Facebook, Blogger, Posterous, and email.

Very powerful because it is so simple.
