Yeah I know. I’m a little late to the game with this one, but I finally set up my Posterous account. I’ve been meaning to do it for about two years now, but I finally got around to it. Like most people, I use Twitter for all my microblogging needs, I maintain a full blog here, and I even have a Tumblr account that I keep on autopilot, updating with anything I post via my blog, Facebook, and Twitter.
Alas, I have finally found a reason to set up a Posterous account, which you can check out here. Basically, it comes down to this: I’ve been struggling lately with how I should update my blog. I try to keep this one more focused on leadership, marketing, social media, networking, etc. There are several things I would like to put down here, but I would either have to sacrifice focus or update it much too often in order to do so. For people who subscribe to this blog via RSS feed or by email, I don’t want to inundate their inbox with a crazy amount of updates. Nor do I want to send them a continuous stream of irrelevant content.
I use Twitter to post quick updates, communicate with friends and professionals, and keep up with news on various topics. Where I found a void was the chasm between microblogging everything and blogging only business material. That’s where Posterous comes in. I like the ability to email photos, videos, and pretty much any kind of media I want to share while providing a little more detail than I can with Twitter. Also, I don’t have to update my self-named blog every few minutes and drive people away. So, if you want to see what I’m up to, feel free to check out the Twitter or Posterous accounts. We’ll see how it goes. I just set it up today and I have some exploration ahead of me. But so far, I like what I see.
Thanks Rey. I know you told me to get on this over a year ago, but I’ve been busy…I promise.
