New Delhi: Posterous is an ingenuous little online service that let’s you create a fairly sophisticated blog just via email. Once you set up your account on Posterous, you can upload blog posts by just composing them in your email client. The title becomes the subject and the body the text of your post.

But that’s not all. Posterous does ingenuous things with links, videos, images and audio files. Attach an audio file with the post and Posterous automatically embeds it in a little player. Same goes for audios. Embed documents and the system automatically embeds that too.
And now Posterous also accepts links from Google Maps and converts them into embedded, interactive maps in your posts.
With frequent new additions to the Posterous service it could easily replace your existing blogging platform. Especially with the cross-posting facility. (Posterous can simultaneously post your entries to Wordpress, Twitter and a host of other services.)
