Posterous groups – Making life easier for everyone. Mostly parents.

Posterous Groups We’re always on the look out for cool services that help make our busy lives easier. Over at Cool Mom Tech, we recently introduced our readers to our sponsor Posterous and their new smart Posterous groups service, and our readers were really, not surprisingly, really excited about it.

No wonder – it’s a very smart way to share photos and posts with family, or connect with your real life groups (New moms group? Book club?) in ways that save busy parents plenty of time and energy.

[Don’t miss the super amazing $500 gift card giveaway after the jump!]

If you’re a class mom, have a kid playing a sport, or just have family who don’t live upstairs from you that likes to see snaps of the kids every four seconds, Posterous Groups is really an awesome resource. We’ve got a full review of it on Cool Mom Tech, but in a nutshell, It allows you to send photos, videos, even MP3s embedded within emails (no attachments, whoo!) to your private group with just a simple email address. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and totally love it.

The best part is, your group members don’t even have to do anything to sign up; just add their email address and they’re in. Oh, and it’s free. Yep. -Kristen

EXTRA EXTRA COOL: WIN IT! Our very cool sponsor Posterous is giving away a $500 Visa Gift Card to one lucky reader. YAY! Just sign up for Posterous groups (it’s free) by February 23 and then leave a comment on the post at Cool Mom Tech  (NOT HERE) telling us what you’re going to do with your group.

    Wow, this is a very cool service. I’d like to use it to communicate with our families, who live no where near us AND use it for keeping up with my friends who also live far, far away. Very cool. And easy. Sign-up was a cinch.

    The timing of this is perfect! I plan to use posterous for a new blog I plan on starting tomorrow. On February 21st 2011, It’ll be exactly 25 months until I turn 50 years old. I’m hoping to lose 50 pounds before that “special” birthday and plan to blog about my journey. Don’t have a blog name yet, but it will probably be called something like 50by50in25. This new site will help me set up the blog quickly and easily and let me post text and pictures just by sending an email. Thanks!

  • I would use the site for my wine club. We get together once per month, each person brings wine and several dishes that go along with the wine. It’s great!

    I plan to use it to keep up with family who aren’t always around but also to keep myself organized because I have years of pictures that are not at all organized that I would love to share with friends, also far away.
