Do You Even Remember Posterous?
Launched in 2008, Posterous made blogging as simple as sending an e-mail. When first launched, the only way users could post to Posterous was to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What Was Posterous?
Posterous was to blogging what Twitter was to, well, blogging, so the argument went. Over the years, the product evolved in odd directions, opting for groups appeal over mobile interfaces and apps as simple as its original purpose.
