For the past year and a bit, I’ve had a couple of blogs on Posterous, mostly for stuff that was too long for Twitter, but too short to warrant full blog posts here. One was for musical recommendations and discoveries, the other for daft little photos I took in everyday life.
What’s that? You didn’t even know they were there? Well, you’ve pretty much missed them now, as I’ll probably remove them soon. I’ve just got so annoyed with how slow and sludgy Posterous is now, and the way it adds so much redundant HTML to Rich Text input. It’s enough of a pain just writing the posts, so I can’t really expect anyone to sit there waiting for the pages to load, purely in order to read my daydreamy drivel.
I know there’s Tumblr (and others) but y’know what? I can’t be arsed. These things start off as quirky, useful little ideas and then the developers lose the thread. I’m not so conceited that I need a Facebook “like” button on my Posterous blog… I’m happy for it to stand alone in its own corner of the internet. So… I’ll probably incorporate the most “lasting” posts into this blog, and continue those posts here. All old Posterous imports will be marked with a “posterous” tag, and I’ll find some way of dividing this blog into big posts, photo posts, quick recommendations, etc.
Anyway, as you were…
