So Posterous is shutting down. But never forget - because however great their product was, I couldn’t respect their cheap tactics (and it’s not even true). It’s fine to compete, but don’t be dirty - and do it by making better products. Don’t do it like this:

But blogging on Tumblr is sort of like being in high school.  But you know deep-down that you can’t be in high school forever.  Eventually, you have to move on.

It’s the same with blogging.  After you get your feet wet, you need comments and the ability to moderate them.*  You need to add different media types to each post.  Your sharing needs are more complex, and your site needs to grow with you. 

Face it.  You need to leave Tumblr behind and graduate to Posterous.

Long live Tumblr.
