Too Many Posting Options?

First of all, my apologies to those who see this twice via my feed. Posterous is still posting duplicates to my blog, and I don’t know why.

A few posts ago, I wrote about how the combination of Posterous and fast two thumb iPhone typing was leading me to post more. Then I proceeded to go a few days without posting anything.

I thought about it, and it wasn’t that there weren’t things I wanted to write about – our first eggs from Rachel’s hens, first day of 1st grade for Emma, some cool iPhone apps I’ve been playing with. I have plenty of stuff I want to post.

I realized that I feel a bit paralyzed by all the posting options that are available.

Posterous, Pixelpipe, Flickr, Friendfeed, etc. They all do roughly the same thing – let me post once to multiple destinations. The problem is that I haven’t worked out the perfect plumbing flow for all my Internet Tubes. I need to find a way to get my words, pictures, and videos to all the places I want them, without duplication, and as of now, there are still some gaps.

For example, Posterous would be perfect, except it doesn’t embed playable video on my blog (it turns into a download link), and doesn’t support blip.tv for sideloading video (I host most of my video there, with Flickr, Youtube, and the like as secondaries/backups).

I’m not complaining. I love noodling on this stuff to try and achieve the perfect flow. It’s not there yet, but it *SO* close! :-)
