We’ve finally found a site that we can’t find anything to make merry about. There are literally thousands of you, right now reading this newsletter (or the Posterous post), who’ve always wished they could put something on the Web. You might have wanted to post a page of witty things or your favorite quotes, or, post a picture of the kids, or the dog; maybe you’ve written somethings special, or piece of spicy vitriol and wanted to put it on the Web but don’t have clue how to do it.
Yep, you know about Facebook but you don’t want a Facebook page, or a blogger page; you don’t want to have to sign up for anything – you just want to put something on your own page on the Web. You want to do it easily and quickly and then send your friends and family a link to it. That’s it. That’s all you want to do.
But how can you do it? What if we told you, you could post anything to your own web page without doing anything more than sending an email? And we mean anything: pictures, videos, music, anything. Our site of the week will convert the file formats to the best possible format and link it from your page or display it in your page. And how do you get all these photos, music, videos, etc. into your page? Why it’s simple, just attach them to your email.
If you can send an email you can make a web page. It does not get any easier than that. Trust us, we’ve made 100,000 web pages or more. Good ones, bad ones, ordinary ones, complicated ones – and we’ve never seen any way to make a page easier than sending an email.
Without our usual lengthy yammering, we’re going to bring on the site’s developers to fill you in on this really amazing site and service. Take it away, developers:
“Posterous lets you post things online fast using email. You email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we reply instantly with your new posterous blog. If you can use email, you can have your own website to share thoughts and media with friends, family and the world.

“…You can attach any type of file and we’ll post it along with the text of your email. We’ll do smarter things for photos, audio files and links, documents and video (both links AND files)….”
