I don't really understand tumblr, but Hungover Owls is the greatest thing that ever happened.

Oh, good. I thought I was the only one who really didn't know what Tumblr was. Is it just a blog hosting kind of site? I got the impression at there was something that made it different from blogs, but I haven't been able to figure out what that might be.

It's sort of in-between Twitter and blogs, I think. You can write a lot if you want or a little or nothing at all, just posting pictures, video, or audio. I also like that it's tons more aesthetically pleasing/less spammy than Twitter.

Here's a couple more for the lolz:

Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber

STFU, Parents

yeah i've seen it referred to as "micro-blogging." some people do write a lot, but most people post pictures or small quotes or videos or mp3's. a lot of tumblrs have a theme but some are just stuff the poster likes. i like it 'cause it's super easy and fast, and i like the simplified layouts. i just update mine whenever i come across something i like that i feel like sharing and remembering. i feel like twitter is just the equivalent of a facebook status update, while tumblr is a collection of images or what have you.

Thanks for the Tumblr explanation.

Can anyone now explain the missing 'e'? Does removing vowels make words hip and cool? If it were spelled "tumbler," would people assume it was a site with pictures of people performing acrobatic stunts?

I follow several of those already, but looks like I'll have more to add to my reader. I also enjoy:


Fuck Yeah Disney Songs
- just for the pure nostalgia factor

Lost Verticals Daily - although they don't post as regularly now, there's still some awesome stuff there

The Pursuit of Happyness - because sometimes you just need something sappy to make you smile

never heard of tumblr, but i get the same feeling i do when i see people's twitter pages--that i'm walking into a conversation somewhere in the middle, i don't get it, but it's also to mundane a conversation for me to care.

Tumblr is gonna be the big emerging thing in social media next year. Mark my words. It's a great way to blog on any topic you want, without devoting too much time to it, and without being as completely simple (feature-deficient) as Twitter.
