Posterous is free blogging platform. This will be the end of the story if Posterous doesn't have many more amazing features.

Main thing here is you post via e-mail. No need for robust web blog editors, just pack your e-mail and you are ready to go. You can include jpg, gif and png images, doc, ppt and pdf files, mp3 music or even avi and mpg video files. They will take care of the content. If you send more photos, they will convert them to nice photo gallery! Links are auto-converted, but not only that: write YouTube link and result is video it links to. Besides YouTube you can use Google Video, Hulu, Vimeo, GodTube and many more.

Best of all, when you post on Posterous, they will instantly autopost on Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress, TypePad,... if you add your accounts. This feature is really the next level of blogging (one service to rule them all)! Is this everything? Not at all! Posterous is still work in progress and new features will be added, including API. Don't forget it has a social dimension too, because you can subscribe to other people's profiles and they can also follow you. Posterous gives you 1Gb of free space and pages are ads free.

This blogging web service is great solution for dial-up Internet users around the world. They don't have to be online while compiling the post, thus connection time is reduced and costs are lower. Off course in this case text and smaller images are preferred content.

This could be good for me. I travel alot and end up with no high speed internet service, if I forget to timestamp posts before I go they sometimes do not get done until I get back.
