Setting up something I can use like Posterous

The Unlibrary Shelves

Because I miss just hitting a button and it would publish everywhere.

Evidently I can do this with wordpress.com too.

Now that the great Neil has RTd me (thanks!), I better explain how.

WordPress.com is hosted, just like posterous was. If you don’t use it yet, create an account and try it. WordPress.com has a bookmarklet called Press This which can live in your browser’s bookmark bar, and allows you to mark text on a website, hit the button and publish instantaneously. WordPress.com blogs can also be customised with themes just like posterous.

The missing piece so far was something called Publicize, which works just like posterous autopost function.

Sigh. I still miss posterous, but less so now.

Also, the Unlibrary. It was fun while it lasted, wasn’t it?
