i use twitter and my blog a lot for things that i want to share, twitter for little things, like questions and thoughts that i have and i can put to less than 140 characters. Blog as it should be is for longer posts, but most of the time i just post pictures that i have uploaded on flickr that’s worth mentioning on my blog. Still I try to squeeze in a real blog post here and there on my blog, things like news or whatever that i find worth writing a post for, like what i’m doing right now.
Anyway the title of the post says tumblr so i better get on topic and talk about tumblr. I didn’t realize until a few days ago was that i really needed something in between a blog and a twitter. Even though most of what i have to say can be posted on twitter or on my blog, but twitter is somewhat limiting due to you can’t post pictures or videos, nor can you comment on other people’s tweets(don’t tell me jaiku has commenting on tweets, i don’t really care about jaiku cause no body uses it). Sometimes i just really wish twitter has those features, but i still love twitter nonetheless.
Tumblr, which i just started using i find is very cool, it’s like twitter except for you can post videos, links, pictures. i made myself a tumblr, and i really liked the way you can use it. They have a button that you put in your browser’s bookmark bar and every time you click it you can post whatever your reading, either it be video, picture or a web page will be posted to tumblr, very handy indeed. Make your posting to tumblr much simpler process because you can just do it while you are browsing, kinda like delicious (another cool service that i use for a while and then forgot about it and then somehow i come back to using it for a while and off again).
But now we run into the problem of having too many postings on too many different services. Frankly do people really care? i mean how many people reads my stuff regularly? would people really care enough to read my tumblr? or is tumblr something like a rich media bookmark that’s for your own enjoyment so when you wanna find that cool new music video by some hot singer (if you read my tumblr you’d find it funny(great marking scheme no?)). You know what, it doesn’t really matter, because i like doing this stuff, makes me feels good, so i’m just gonna keep doing it. It might come in handy some day, you never know.
I know it’s quite a long post, and for those of you who have stuck through all the way here, i sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart that you are willing to spend the time to read what i have to say.
