Posterous gets themes, might actually be a serious player now
Simple to use blogging platform Posterous has added the ability for users to set up custom themes, perhaps finally turning the much hyped service into a serious player.
For those not familiar with Posterous, the service offers a cut down blogging platform that focuses on ease of use. Users can email blog entries in (indeed, when it launched this was the only way to post) and Posterous pulls out the content parts and pushes it live to the web.
Despite its lack of features, or more accurately because of the lack of features, Posterous has become the “it” blogging come lifestreaming service of the 2.0 crowd. Think Blogger 2.0, but not full of emos like Tumblr is.
The new theme option offers users five set themes that they can customize colors on; not exactly open slather, but better than none at all. Users are also able to upload a logo file for each template. More details here.
It’s a step in the right direction for Posterous, and will immediately make the service more appealing to those who don’t think it’s the best thing since sliced bread yet.
