Finally successfully moved my blog to posterous. Why leave self-hosted wordpress after 2+years? its because it was starting to be a pain to maintain. I love wordpress being easy to install and infinitely customizable thru its plugins, but I was getting all sorts of errors with pages not loading and what not. However the straw that really broke the camels back was some of my other hosted blogs got hacked and were infected with malicious code and it was just too much of a problem to solve.
Is posterous that great? It has its ups and downs. Trading customizability for stability is a worthwhile trade and i love their email posting function (using it right now and also haven;t been able to find a wordpress plugin that is as good). Had a lot of difficulty importing my blog into posterous, even though supposedly importing is a major selling function of posterous. In the end i hired a nice ukrainian developer who did it for me via freelancer.com
