I’m on Tumblr!

April 13, 2014

…and right now, I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing with it. Granted, it looks easier to grasp that Twitter, but still. If anyone here has tried this website before, then I’d be very grateful to hear your thoughts/advice on it.

For what it’s worth, my (mostly bare right now) tumblr page can be foundย here.

    I love Tumblr! In my experience, most people use it more for pictures and very short posts — I don’t see a lot of longer blogs. It’s also more geared toward younger age groups, like teenagers and 20-somethings. I’ve run into a lot of fandoms on Tumblr — you name it, there’s probably a fandom for it. And unlike Twitter, it seems less conversation-based and more like an online diary, but that really depends on how you want to use it.

    • Personally, I’d like to use it as an alternate avenue for certain WordPress posts I make – namely, anything that has a “point” to it, as opposed to simple journaling. Not sure if that’s the best use of it, but I guess we’ll see.

      And yeah, I’ve noticed the thing with pictures on tumblr: most peoples’ pages seem to be full of the things (not to mention all the gifs). I plan to stick to the “short post” side of things on my own page, personally, but the pics are certainly fun to look at ๐Ÿ™‚

        I had my WP blogs post on Tumblr for a while, but I wasn’t getting very much interest. Maybe it was the length of my posts or the subject matter… or perhaps I didn’t “promote” enough.

    I tried tumblr a little while ago.. but it confused the heck out of me! I hope you get on with it ok! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Well, I’m still kinda confused, but I reckon I’ll get it in the end. The only question is whether I’ll have enough time to really make the most out of it…

  3. I use tumble to promote my WordPress blog. I prefer the WordPress format. Every post I publish on wordpress automatically goes to tumblr. It’s a great idea for people who want to gain more subscribers but like there regular blog!!

    • I also prefer WordPress right now, though part of it may just be my lack of experience with tumblr. Tumblr looks good for viewing and sharing content, but it also looks really bad for actually interacting with people. Maybe my opinion will change over time; guess we’ll see.

  4. Looks very much like G+. Not somewhere I’ve experimented with so I will watch your experience with interest ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I’m still having a lot of trouble with it right now, to be honest. It just seems utterly mind boggling, particularly after having gotten so used to WordPress. Mind you, I had a lot of trouble with WordPress when I first started, so I’m sure I’ll get it in the end.

      I’ll probably blog on my progress on this in a fortnight or so, once I’ve gotten to grips with it a bit better.
