I’ve recently found that some of my social net connections are actively using Posterous and it brings me back to wondering why I’ve not yet got into it.On the one hand, it’s just another “sink” – after my blog, Flickr, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and anywhere else I might spread my content. On the other, folks like Leo Laporte sing its praises… and when I look at my Tumblr http://andypiper.tumblr.com that has become not a lot more than a continuous feed of my delicious tags, with the occasional “quotation” post. So, what should I use this for? Whilst I can see the convenience of emailing updates, I’m used to my offline blogging clients, where I have a lot more control of the layout and content. I’m already seeing a major shift in my online behaviour towards more “streaming” sites like Twitter for link sharing rather than forming whole posts around things. On balance, though, it’s good to be here, especially now that I find more of a network with some great material to explore. Let’s see how it unfolds.
