The future, it’s all about posting efficiency!
This posting was born in my mail program and then sent to email@example.com where it, in all it’s rich text goodness, was converted into a blog posting at a yet another blog. Yeah, you can never have enough blogs yeah? Meanwhile this blog has the FeedWordPress plugin installed. That fetched the RSS from my posterous blog, creating drafts from each posting. Finally I added this final paragraph to that draft, and hit publish. (I also choose to change the posting time.)
Posterous is fun! Try it! It made me want a way to do email posting to this blog. But WordPress support for email posting is lame, no SSL, no rich text, etc. FeedWordPress, which was originally designed for managing planet blogs, works around that problem quite nicely.
