Posthaven – the new alternative to the soon-to-be-shuttered Posterous platform – is quickly becoming a reality. I was lucky to get included as a tester and my Creekside Chatter blog has now been migrated to Posthaven. For several days, all I could do was look at my posts and enjoy how well the migration went. This morning I discover that I can now actually add and edit posts from the blog platform. The editor is still quite basic – there’s no facility for including photos or other media yet – but the editing toolbar has a much cleaner look.
The public side of the blog is quite basic – no themes yet. Most of the formatting is CSS defaults giving the site a simple, clean look.
There’s still a lot of work needed before Posthaven has all the features and functionality of Posterous, but I’m delighted with the progress and look forward to enjoying one of my favorite blog platforms without worrying about it’s future.
