Blogging has been around for quite some time but Posterous is relatively new. When I decided to start a blog (which was for the purpose of sharing my travels) I weighed up WordPress, Blogger and Posterous because these were the ones I knew about. I chose Posterous in the end because it is super easy to use and you can make posts via email (subject line is the title of the post, attachments are images and the message is the body copy). It’s really easy to navigate too, and suitable for both newbies and people who are more experienced and wish to customise their page more.
Since I started I’ve had the chance to dabble a little with WordPress and I quite like it so I’d consider it for another blog or website but I’m happy with my Posterous for the moment.
