Tumblr – and how I use it
In my blogpost “Tumblr – what is it good for” I announced that I would use Tumblr regularly and write about my experiences.
- First of all, I have been using it regularly. There are even days with more than one post.
- I have been using it as a kind of bookmarking system, not as a blogging tool. With the archive system of Tumblr it is really easy to return to the single pages and follow the links (Note to self: Don’t forget to fill out the “Title” field!).
- The single pages on my Tumblr are not a result of a research for a certain subject, but are the accidental results of my online life – twitter, igoogle and my google reader. It was either a blog post which I wanted to re-read, or a certain squidoo lens which I wanted to have at hand.
- Nevertheless my February tumblr pages somehow reflect my current interests – you can find links to many art tutorials, some information about photoshop, a bit of SEO and some miscellaneous links.
- Yet there is one big question I am asking myself: Why do I collect so many links to art tutorials and leave my brandnew watercolor pencils set still unpacked on the shelf? There seems to be a slight imbalance between theory and practice…
By the way, you are most heartily welcomed to follow me on tumblr:
