Import Tumblr Posts to Posterous and Posterous Themes
By on September 17th, 2009

Posterous is one of the simplest way to share and publish content to a website using emails. I have been using Posterous for quite sometime now to forward funny emails and share it with my friends.

However unlike other similar platforms like Tumblr, Posterous did not have themes which are considered which allows users to customize the look and feel.

But that was only until yesterday. In a new rollout Posterous has not added the ability to allow users to choose among different themes. You can choose between number of available themes, update headers or modify the HTML and CSS of the themes to suit your needs.

Posterous has also added a new feature to import content from Tumblr and other blogging platform. To import posts from Tumblr visit http://posterous.com/import and select Tumblr from the list.

Enter the details of your Tumblr blog and hit Save. Posterous will import all your posts from Tumblr and add it to your Posterous account, pretty cool considering that Tumblr is the biggest rival of Posterous.

You can also import content from other blogging platforms like Blogger, , Typepad, Movable Type and Xanga.

    I just started using Posterous, and like the email-ease of posting. BUT sure hope more themes are added.

    The best-looking theme is Dakhar, except the type colors are so dark it is barely legible!

    I am code-challenged, so have not had luck customizing it yet.
