Time to move on

After years on what I believe was ones of the best blogging platforms, today the inevitable was announced.  Posterous will be closing down on the 30th of April.

It’s such a shame and very saddening that those behind the service sold out to Twitter.

This is one of many services that have canned to the pressure of lining their pockets.

And that makes me all the more comfortable with my decision to invest my time and efforts in Google.

Blogsy…. testing

I’ve just downloaded Blogsy after watching a couple of the tutorial videos. It seems like a great way to connect your various media streams to your blogs, making photo and image selection (and video) very easy when drafting a blog post. The drag and drop (from your Picasa, Flickr, YouTube accounts) feature works very well indeed. The image below was dragged from my Picasa albums in just a couple of tap

The interface seems fairly straightforward and the app runs very well on my (old!) iPad 1. I was concerned that performance might be lacking on the old iPad but it runs very well indeed.

Anyway, just an initial post to try it out. I shall post more thoughts on it later, when I’ve had chance to use it more.
So far, so good!
