Hi, this is a post that I will use as an example to publish to Posterous automatically using a plugin that I want to modify.
This, however, is not the post that will get auto posted. I'm just using this as an example to show you how the post should look in WordPress, then in Posterous, then in Blogger (and all the other platforms that allow syndication.
The post in WordPress should be the full post. The "reposting" on Posterous should be either (version .8) a snippet of say 300 characters for blogs and 100 characters for micro blogs or (version .9) your choice of full post or snippet of any length.
Obviously, future versions should incorporate a URL shortener, not limited to bit.ly, but nearly anything out there.
I will manually push this to Posterous, which should then automatically send the post to Blogger.
