Last week, I decided to start a Tumblr blog to curate the various articles and resources I come across in the Twitterverse and the web at large. I’ve called it “Red Mage’s Spellbook,” and you’re welcome to subscribe or follow the blog at http://brightmatrix.tumblr.com/.
I joined Tumblr for two reasons: to explore what this social tool is all about and to serve as my cloud-based library. I routinely save tweets I want to come back to or take action on to my Twitter favorites, but I find this to be an imperfect system. As for Facebook, I continue to be frustrated by the lack of a “favorites” feature. I see Tumblr as the perfect place to collect my digital artifacts for research and sharing.
I realize that Tumblr is a very powerful blogging and rich media platform in its own right, but I don’t see it as a replacement for Tweeto Ergo Sum. I’ll continue to post “long form” thoughts and opinions here.
