After listening to last week’s episode of Macbreak Weekly (one of my favorite podcasts…), I discovered Tumblelogging. I set one up for myself at Tumblr (with no ‘e’ in the Web 2.0 tradition) and have been finding it a very useful place to dump random things that are more than a del.icio.us link, more than a Flickr photo, and less than a blog post.
If you’re new to the concept, a Tumblelog is essentially a lightweight blog with no commenting. You get a surprisingly powerful bookmarklet that allows you to post a pic from any page in Flickr. If I could just get mine set up to receive pics directly from my mobile phone, I think I’d be onto something!
- What is a tumblelog?
- Tumblr – Free tumblelogging
- Ozimodo – Got a webserver with Rails? Roll your own!
- Projectionist – Perhaps one of the first tumblelogs
