While Twitter is great for sharing ideas, I’m getting a little frustrated at the 140 character limit. Sometimes it is great, other times you need a few more characters. I also want to keep this blog more ‘professional’ and technical related. As such, I’m going to use a service called Posterous to post some random thoughts and comments of a more personal nature about my life. Some of you might be interested, however I’m guessing most of you won’t be 🙂
One of the great things about Posterous is how easy it is to get started as you simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This then creates a blog for you:
However, in order to get a real URL you need to claim your post by clicking the link.
Done! The blog has been created. The domain name is http://benhall.posterous.com/ – Feel free to follow what I’m saying.
If you want to start blogging, sharing ideas – either personal, or technical then posterous is a very quick way to get started.
