Tumblr – microblogging

While the majority of my days have been wrapping my mind around CDE and how we ‘do’ things here, I’ve been delighted to learn new tools. On day 2, I set up a Tumblr account (Alaskaknits) namely because I saw Tumblr listed in an online course Christen (hi Christen) teaches.

Selecting what to do is easy!

I’m happy to report after one full week that I really, really like Tumblr. I’ve uploaded an image, two links and several small posts. I’ve set it up to automatically feed into my Facebook stream. This is fabulous. I’ve tried three times before to blog, with little or no success. This tool could be a winner; dare I say “The” winner?

  1. Tumblr has an almost perfect storm of features that make it useful in my class. It’s free, easy, and it is very simple to connect feeds from other places you may already be posting (easy to integrate external feeds). In addition, Tumblr sites are easy to theme if you’re not able to find an existing theme you like from the thousands that are already available.

    One last thought – the Follow button is easy.
