Blogging with email

Blogging has been the one single thing that has changed the face of the internet and made it what it is today. With the start of blogging, internet really became a democratic place, where anyone has the freedom to write and share his/her thoughts with the world.

Making a new blog is what a person dreams of when it comes to social networking. But what hinders the path is the thought of Designing, Maintaining & Contributing to the blog. In the busy lives of today, very few people have time dedicated to blogging. Today, I want to share with you, how can you make a blog of your own, and that too, without designing, subscribing or even registering for anything!


And, the magic wand is Posterous. With this service, you don’t have to worry about:

  • Designing
  • Implementing
  • Maintenance

The two steps to be followed to create a full fledged blog are:

  1. Email anything to [email protected] (you can attach photo/video/mp3 files along)
  2. You’ll get an instant reply with your new blog address.

Now, is there anything (with that I really mean, anything) much simpler to do on the whole internet? Having a blog of your own without even a registration hindrance? To my knowledge there is nothing like it. You can update your blog on the fly from your computer or even from your cell phone. You have upto 1 GB personal space on Posterous.

Have a great idea? Just mail it to your posterous mail and it will be published.
