Posterous: The best platform for a personal weblog


PosterousIn the recent past, We had written about Why having a Personal Blog is highly recommended. After that, few friends/readers asked me where can I start a personal blog? I personally recommend you to establish your Personal blog in Posterous.

Why Posterous?

  1. First of all, if you previously had a personal blog in Blogger, wordpress or Tumblr, you can easily import those posts to Posterous. Thus you don’t experience any kind of loss of data.
  2. This feature called Autopost sends your post automatically to various services including Facebook, Twitter and Google Buzz. The horse point is that you can also Autopost your post to your tumblr blog.
  3. In the manage page you can see how many times a post has been viewed, commented and Favorited.
  4. Setting up Google Analytics and feedburner is as easier than in Google’s own service, Blogger. [Go to: Settings –> Analytics]
  5. Versatile Bookmarklet – Tag and comment on the current page, and also credit the source page at the same time.
  6. Tweet and like button in all the default themes
  7. You can easily set up a top level domain by just adding an ‘A’ record.
  8. Fully Flexible with Theme customizations
  9. Post by E-mail, Bookmarklet, Mobile and more.
  10. A personal blog is much needed, and posterous is the Most reliable [according to me]

Don’t have a posterous blog? Go grab one!

Why having a personal blog is Highly recommended?

Are you one of the bloggers who think that:

Having a niche blog is good, getting decent traffic is even better, and earning some revenue is the best part of blogging?

Then make up your mind and create one personal blog and start updating it in a daily basis. Here’s why I highly recommend you to have a Personal blog.

Personal blogs - Best way to Express yourself
Personal blogs - Best way to Express yourself

Why a personal blogs is recommended …HIGHLY

  • Ability of being yourself: You read it right. You neither have any expectations or limitations in a Personal blog
  • You don’t have a specific niche: You can write both about movies and iPod both in the same blog in case it is a personal one.
  • It’s just a formal dinner, not a marriage Ceremony: Connect and showcase your personal Blog only to a small circle of your Friends, Family and acquaintances.
  • No, No duties: I personally think that SEO is not that necessary to a personal Blog – Who wants to get organic traffic for failing in the terminal exam?
  • A playground for experiments: You can experiment plugins, widgets and likes and if you like the performance and the response you get from your limited audience, you can insert the same in your niche blog.

What’s more? Lots more.
I hope niche bloggers who doesn’t have a personal blog will change their mind after reading this post. I feel Tumblr is the best platform for Personal blogs. I have just enrolled a new Personal blog out there in tumblr – murugappan.tumblr.com.
