I have talked about blogging and micro-blogging before, but what about blogging without a blog?
Posterous is a new tool that let’s you do just that! All you need is email, and I’d put money on the fact that you all have email already! All you need to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ve just posted to your blog!
The subject line of your email is the post title. The message body is the post content. You can even send pictures, audio or video attachments to be posted as well! “If you can use email, you can have your own website to share thoughts and media with friends, family and the world.”
If you send in multiple photos, they’ll automatically make a photo gallery for you. If you send in a link, they will make it an active link; unless it’s a link to a video or photo or some other media, when they embed the video for you so readers don’t have to click to see it. And much more!
I just did it myself. It REALLY is just as easy as it sounds. All I did was send an email. But, it was fun so I did it twice. 🙂 You can see it here!
With tools like this that narrow the adoption requirements for blogging and social media use, do you see the culture change or organizational use changing?
