I can assign various email addresses to my posterous account, enabling me to post from various email accounts. This would work with a class blog to have students email in their posts. The negative to this is that the teacher would not be approving the posts prior to publication. The positive would be that the student would not need blog accounts, just email accounts, in order to post an article to the class blog. Once the email is sent, the post appears. I wonder if there is a way to tell what email address the post came from….hmmmm. I’ll keep you posted on that. ;>)
You can attach files to your email message (photos, mp3s, documents, and video). So I’ve attached 2 images to this message, a document, and an audio file. Can’t wait to see where that all ends up. Will it be stored at posterous or WordPress.com? What will be displayed and where? Will the hyperlinks in my email message transfer to the blog post? I guess this post won’t be assigned a category or have any tags.
Okay, here goes. Click the Send button.
