New On Tumblr

June 22, 2008

Tumblr logoI blogged here about tumblelogs a long time ago.

Now I’ve finally signed up for one. Here’s mine: Lost and Found

I plan to use it for shorter, more frequent posts, pictures, songs and links which deserve a little more comment than you can give on This blog will remain of course, but I’ll try to post longer, more in-depth articles, reviews and comments.

Of course, if you’ve been reading this blog recently you’ll know that I’m into web 2.0 services which aggregate all your content in one place, so you may never need to visit my Tumblr blog at all. But please feel free to catch up with me on Friendfeed and Swurl.


What’s A Tumblelog?

March 3, 2007

It’s just like a blog, but without all that annoying sub-amateur textual commentary drivel.

If that’s burnished your barnacle, check out Tumblr, or have a look at some flagship tumblelogs in action:


That one’s projectionist, and this one’s Anarchaia:


This is perfect for when you come across something cool and just want to share it with others. No quirky post titles, no fuss; just the good stuff. Tumblelogs can be anything you want them to be: a bunch of pictures you think are cool, haikus, quotes… And because there’s no need to write reams of explanatory text about what you’ve just posted, they tend to be updated more frequently. In fact, they’re a bit like bookmarks, but somehow cooler.
