Posting to blog via email

Blog sites like Blogger have allowed posting by email for some time. New services like Posterous enable this with your own email address, without posting to a computer-generated, cryptic one.

I never knew offered this. I discovered this by accident, trying to figure out how to attach photos to postings via Ping. For sake of convenience, relevant Ping Help page here:

How excellent! Okay, it’s via a cryptic email address, but by golly it works, from email to Facebook, Twitter, Ning Page and beyond. And your attached photos get added to your Flickr account if you wish.

Combined with an email enabled mobile phone, this is good competition for Posterous, and I’m a happy lad.
