great post about a social media site that is growing in popularity. It's called Tumblr. Have you heard of it? Until her post, I had been cautiously dipping my toe in the Tumblr dark waters because, seriously, I need to spend more time on the Internet like I need a hole in the head.
But I'm fairly computer geeky and was intrigued. Tumblr is like blogging and Facebook on steroids. When you view people's pages, it's short snippets of a lot of stuff all at once. It's the virtual visual equivalent of Vegas.
Not sure how I feel about Tumblr at the moment. If I had to give it a temperature, I'd say I'm lukewarm. I kind of like Blogger for more in-depth posts and Facebook for (sometimes) more detailed conversations with friends and family. Twitter, of course, is fun for quick bites of mostly nothingness. Can Tumblr be all three? Not sure yet.
I do think Roni is absolutely right though that Tumblr is good for people who want to blog but who don't want to spend a lot of time blogging because it's not really blogging. It's more like tweeting but with visuals.
Naturally, I started a Tumblr page. Click here if you'd like to see my page. I haven't figured out yet how to allow comments (or if I want them), additional pages, and other bloggy-type stuff. A work in progress. For now, Tumblr is a new playground for me and time will tell if I grow tired of the new shiny. And, if I spend more than an hour a week on Tumblr please, somebody, take away my computer privileges and lock me in a room because I've got one book to finish and another to write before the end of next year.
In other news this weekend, Talli Roland, Gabriella Hewitt, and Tara Chevrestt left lovely reviews of Craving Perfect on Goodreads. Thank you, wonderful ladies!
So, with that, do you Tumblr yet?
