Testing Tumblr

tumblr-iconWell, it’s pretty clear by now that this Tumblr thing isn’t going away anytime soon, so I’ve bitten the bullet and I’ve set up a mirror blog there.

WordPress.com makes it super easy, with their Publicize tool, which I’ve already been using, such that every time I post something here it’s automagically posted on Facebook and Twitter as well. Now, everything will also be posted to the new Tumblr account I created.

The only bummer about the process, I discovered that there was already a Tumblr blog called Fish & Bicycles, and so I had to name my tumblr fishandbicycles-bellingham.com. I don’t know which of us came first, because, maddeningly, I can’t seem to find any way to determine when fishandbicycles.tumblr.com was started. Oh well.

Honestly, I have no idea how to use Tumblr otherwise, and I don’t see myself doing much with it other than having it act as an additional venue for the blogging I do here.

One cool thing, though, this is what my archive page looks after having retroactively published some of my more recent posts there (be sure to click to enlarge!):

  1. Was thinking of using Tumblr too but not sure if I will bite, too many things to check (twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Flickr, …). I may give it a try but I think I will stick to twitter and WordPress blog.

    • I agree about too many things to check, and so I don’t plan on checking the Tumblr site very often. The fact that WordPress makes it so easy for me to have my posts automatically posted to Tumblr is the ONLY reason I even considering doing this.
