Tumblr rules. There, I said it. I really love it. Here’s how Tumblr describes their free service:
Tumblr lets you effortlessly share anything. Post text, photos, quotes, links, music, and videos, from your browser, phone, desktop, email, or wherever you happen to be. You can customize everything, from colors, to your theme‘s HTML.
We used Tumblr extensively leading up to and during our recent CESBOUND.com road trip. Our ninja web designer created a custom Tumblr template that rocks. Each of us used our iPhones to post updates, pictures, quotes, video and audio to our Tumblr account in real time. It was perfect for a road trip.
Tumblr is also perfect if you want to create a quick blog. I’ve recently created two new ones, Music Dave Loves, which automatically posts music I “love” using Last.FM and Dave’s Shared Items, which aggregates my Google Shared Items. I encourage you to subscribe to the feed if you’re interested in what I’m interested in.
If you’re looking for a way to share things you should consider using Tumblr.
