Top 15 Posterous Themes

In the past few years, self publishing on the Internet has come a long way. With a number of platforms pioneering easy to use authoring tools and incredibly affordable pricing- click to configure & self hosted – writers can just focus on delivering quality content instead of managing a complex backend.

To make things even more simpler, Posterous jumped the gun by launching self publishing via emails. Type in the content in your favorite text editor or in the email compose window and send mail it to your preset blog email id to get it posted in your blog. Same is the case with images, audio and video. It’s just ridiculously simple. Recently Posterous has opened up the platform for custom themes and let us check out 15 of the very best among the selection.

    Nice collection. Loved Slider Press. :-)

      Slider PRess is AWESOME there’s another one called Slider, looks better than S.P.

      But that’s not the worst of all, it falsely shows you all kinds of stuff it can do and it isn’t even halfway decent when you get it to work on Posterous! The nav links don’t work, the site name doesn’t show up, pages don’t show up the V-Cards don’t show up (yes I turned on the option!)

      $15 for what? A joke!

        Thanks Shannon,

        I was just looking at getting Slider PR! Checked out the Slider theme from Obox Design I am guessing this is the one you are talking about, thanks anyway as I will get this theme for my Posterous Blog

        Thanks for your insight :)
