  • I started using posterous some time back and I'm Shocked to see the way they have grown. Specially by user generated content..
    Adding custom domain is something a smart move… I'm hoping they might come up with some thing like what wordpress did, Self hosted Posterous 🙂

    • Posterous had the option to add custom domains previously. But it was a tedious process, where one needed to go to the domain provider and change/adjust the CName Records.
      Now they have given an option to Posterous users who don’t have a domain to buy one and start using it on their blog right away. No more geeky stuff there. I am sure they are gonna love it.

      BTW, self-hosted Posterous sounds like a great idea too. 🙂
