A few weeks ago the popular blogging platform Posterous reported that the service will turn off on April 30th. While it might seem expected after the company's adquisition by Twitter, truth is that this leaves many bloggers in the cold. Posterous users have now the task to find a service where their blogs can be migrated to, and as soon as possible.
If you're one of them, you're lucky: at Obolog everything is ready for you to transition your blog from Posterous the simplest way. Here's how:
- Go http://posterous.com/#backup
- Click on "Request Backup" right after your blog name.
- When your backup is ready, you will receive an email. You should check the site after a few hours anyway: the email may arrive too late even if the backup is ready.
- Go back again to http://posterous.com/#backup and download the ZIP file.
- Upload the ZIP file (do not uncompress) to http://posterous.obolog.com
- Enjoy the Obolog Experience!
Obolog is one of the most veteran blogging platforms in Spain and Latin America network (we're online since 2005, more than 8 years), and is fully developed and managed by bloggers, like you, with names and surnames: @obokaman, @alombarte, @sergiambel and @tonipinel (btw, we'll love getting your feedback).
These are some of the reasons why we believe it's worth migrating your Posterous blog to Obolog:
- It's fast, easy and free (really, no conditions)
- You can customize the look and feel of your blog plus the design is optimized for all kinds of devices: read in desktop, mobile, tablet with the right layout.
- You can manage more than one blog with a single account and add collaborators to any of them.
- You can use your own domain.
- You can view statistics for your blog and posts.
- Blogs interfaces are translated to 8 languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch and Catalan. And more coming!
- In addition, we import the pictures too! (Other services like Wordpress merely link to your images on Posterous ... so they will disappear on April 30th!)
Let's blog? We're waiting you at http://posterous.obolog.com and ... May the Blog be with you!
