tumblr

tumblr is pretty cool. I've been playing around with it since rakka showed it to me. It's described as a sort of mini blog, but I think of it as a souped up del.icio.us.

So it's got different post types designed to make it really easy to get some bit of something off the web and in to a blog like format. It's designed almost to discourage commentary. It's just about the thing. Simple. Quick.


So that sounds like del.icio.us to me, at least the way I use it. But you can do images, quotes, video, and even conversations. And it's pretty good at taking what you throw at it and making it look right in the post.

I just don't know if it'll fit in with all the blogs, twitters, media sharing, yadda yadda yadda. It'll just end up being more cruft on the sidebar. *sigh*

tumblr is the new, what are we up to now? pink? brown?

are we back to black yet?

anyway, i like it better than delicious because of the image/video/conversation thing. i'm using it as a "things to blog about in the future" type site.

which, you know, ain't half bad.

Oh no, I'm not saying it's bad. It's happy and shiny.

But it's just one more thing to be happy and shiny and now I have to find a place for it on my internet.

ditching that piece of crap might give you some room on your internet.

;D and a har har!
