Posterous is Gone – Almost

The public side of the Posterous blog platform is no longer. According to the guys at Posthaven, they had to close down new account signups for a while last week to focus on getting Posterous users safely migrated to Posthaven. Over at the Posterous site, there’s a notice that existing users can continue to log in until May 31st – but only to request a site backup.

So, with the Posterous migration madness behind them, the Posthaven developers can concentrate on building the platform. Here’s what’s happening according to their roadmap:

Here’s what’s in there now:

  • Post by web, with photos, music, video and documents
  • Private sites with passwords
  • Pages and links
  • Autopost to Facebook and Twitter

Here’s what’s coming soonest:

  • Post by email
  • Image gallery upload and editing
  • Commenting
  • CSS customization
  • Autopost to Google+, App.net, LinkedIn, and other services
  • Blog following with email notifications
  • Multiple contributors
  • Bookmarklet

Don’t see anything about themes here? Not to worry – they’re saving that for last. The CSS customization feature should give us some flexibility with fonts, colors and such, but themes won’t come until everything else is in place. I kinda like the plain vanilla wrapper – but a few custom fonts could do wonders  . . .
