Posterous has had a few rocky patches with their service going down recently, coupled with some email troubles. I've been a big fan of Posterous early on for its simplicity and ease of use, but in my opinion, they have been lagging for quite some time in building a better product in the past year. Along the same lines, Tumblr has been continuing to innovate and have built a very diverse and large user base. The future of blogging is not in WordPress, but in services like Tumblr. I've been constantly surprised at the amount of interesting content I've found, from philosophy to art, via Tumblr, and it was extremely easy to do so.
And now, it's time to move my domain over and join the masses in tumbling away. The community built in Tumblr is far more interesting, and features such as the "fan mail" and "ask" are a delight in this new age of "tumbling." Besides, over the holidays, some 13 year olds looked at our wedding pictures and exclaimed "wow, these are awesome tumblr pics!" You know a service is hot when young kids are using your service as nouns and verbs.
