Posterous will be turned off tomorrow on 30th April 2013.
Posterous was a popular blogging platform that launched in 2008. This platform was a really easy and simple way to setup a blog but now they are closing their platform.
Users will have until 31st May 2013 to transfer their account over to a new blogging platform like WordPress or Blogger. The official statement from Posterous has provided information on how to migrate your Posterous blog over to WordPress.
On April 30th, we will turn off posterous.com and our mobile apps in order to focus 100% of our efforts on Twitter. This means that as of April 30, Posterous Spaces will no longer be available either to view or to edit.
Right now and over the next couple months until May 31, you can download all of your Posterous Spaces including your photos, videos, and documents.
Here are the steps:
- Go to http://posterous.com/#backup.
- Click to request a backup of your Space by clicking “Request Backup” next to your Space name.
- When your backup is ready, you’ll receive an email.
- Return to http://posterous.com/#backup to download a .zip file.
If you want to move your site to another service, WordPress and Squarespace offer importers that can move all of your content over to either service. Justmigrate offers a service to move your site to Tumblr.
If you do have a Posterous blog and wish to transfer over to WordPress please let us here at Picasso Media know. We can quickly and easily help move you over to a new blog.
