With the impending closure of Posterous I have copied the (very limited amount of) content from my Posterous blog back here. The posts copied back have the tag posterous. I have also closed my Posterous account.
I used for following plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/posterous-importer/ – which despite the low rating worked fine for me. Admittedly there was very little content and no comments.
I think it’s a shame that Posterous is to close. As a site for posting and quickly sharing rich media clips I quite liked it. I was unaware of the Twitter acquisition when when joined but as it soon became clear that it was doomed I didn’t use it to any great extent. While I thought it filled a different niche to Twitter and could have been complementary, that was clearly not the business plan so I bid Posterous a fond farewell. Another casualty of monetization?
