I’ve not been writing enough posts to justify using WordPress as my blog backend, but I still wanted a platform to share all those interesting tid-bits that I find around the intertubes… I tried several WP plugins, but they were a hassle – I could pull my shared items into my draft posts folder, but still had to access each one and change it drastically before publishing.
I’d seen that a lot of people have moved to Posterous and were using it as a midi-blog platform – somewhere in between Twitter and WP. I signed up on Friday and within about 6 hours of fiddling, I now have 2 new Posterous blogs:
ellybabes will continue to be my “pop-culture” blog, for want of a better word, sharing the best of the items that I find around the web, with occasional wordy posts thrown in as the desire arises.
Yummy Recipes is a new venture for me. Quite simply, I read a lot of food blogs and want a way to archive the recipes I like but haven’t made yet. I was doing this simply through bookmarks in my browser, but I rarely go back and look at them or make any of the recipes. Using Posterous will allow me to clip out just what I want from the recipe page, and make it easier to search through and find recipes to tempt me when planning the shopping.
