Posthaven Primer

Posthaven sample

If you are looking for an easy and affordable blogging platform, Posthaven is a good place to start. If you can send an email message, you can post an article at Posthaven. The example you see above was created and published from the porch of a restaurant using a mobile phone. I took the picture with my phone, popped it into an email message, added a short note and emailed it to my Posthaven blog. The subject line of the email message became the title for this blog post. And, within minutes, this post was delivered to my family in Florida via their email inbox. Yes, it’s that easy!

For $5.00/month you can build up to ten blogs with the pledge that Posthaven will never be acquired or shut down. You may say you have no inclination to manage ten sites, but you will quickly find you can use your Posthaven sites in many useful ways. For example, you may want to set up a blog just for your family history. You can also set up a private blog for your family to share news and events that aren’t appropriate on public social networks. Obviously, you won’t want to post vacation pictures on Facebook. That’s an invitation to criminals looking for unoccupied homes. With a Posthaven private family blog, only the people you add as subscribers will see your photos.

The Posthaven Primer will show you how to get started. You can read it right here and you can download a PDF copy to keep for reference.
