Have you ever tried to explain your friend about blogging and encountered with faqs like how to start up a blog?.More often or not convincing them how to sign up and post is more painful than explaining them why and what to post .
Posterous introduces the easiest way to blog.All you have to do is
write an email to post@posterous.com and then …nothing thats it :).Your blog with yourname.posterous.com is setup with contents of your mail as the first post.You can then edit the url to your liking.
You can send anything! Posterous will accept any file you send and convert it to the most web friendly format available. We’ll host everything and publish it online instantly.

You can attach any type of file and we’ll post it along with the text of your email.
They’ll do smarter things for photos, audio files and links, documents and video (both links AND files).They support
.doc,.ppt,.pdf,.jpg,.gif,.png,.mp3,.avi.mpg files

If you attach one photo (of any size, even direct from your camera!), it will resize it to a web-friendly size and post it. If you attach more than one photo in the same message, it automatically creates a good-looking image gallery

Posterous is THE easiest way to post a video online using email.Autoposting to flickr,facebook,twitter is also possible.

With all these convenience ,you still have conventional private posts as well as log into dashboard  approach posting which provides you Rich text editor.

Have a try I bet you will like it
