This email, in theory, should start a blog with this email as the first post on it. It must be the easiest way to start a blog, but I wonder how popular it will get - perhaps that also depends on other things such as being able to include photos, and stuff like that.
For example, if I paste a photo in this email, will it also come up in the blog?
And I suppose it will include links, anyway â€“ such as one to my blog http://www.julianhopkins.net
And will you be able to Digg it?
It should create a blog using the part before the @ as the username â€“ so it should be http://julian.posterous.com
(I learnt about this from http://kerim.posterous.com/ )
Letâ€™s see if it works, and how long it takes (itâ€™s 17.45 now). Sendingâ€¦
Well it worked! It was pretty much instantaneous, and you can see the results here.
I didn't get julian.posterous.com as some other Julian got it already, so it's julian_lzhga instead, but that can be changed.
The Digg script didn't work - I suppose it doesn't take html script, or java, or something.
Conclusion: not bad, for a rapid and easy blog. I can't see myself switching, but it might appeal to some people...
