[Replicable Practices] Week 09: Microblogging (Post 1 of 1)

March 31, 2012

Thing #16 Tumblr

The ninth week encourages participants of the 23 things @ MPJ adventure to complete a short tumble with Tumblr.

Tumblr is not exactly blogging and not exactly tweeting. It is right in the middle. I watched the following two videos to give me a sense of what to expect.

How to use Tumblr

What’s new in Tumblr


Note: Even after watching the two videos I didn’t really understand Tumblr. So this time I jumped right into the stream. I signed up for an account, received a verification link in my email and followed it. Signed in once more and I explored. After a few minutes of fighting the current, I began to tread water and before you know it I was swimming again. It takes some time to figure out how to customize your Tumblr site but once you got customizing is fun. Posting content is simple.

Simplicity lead to my confusion. Something simple confusing? Mia culpa, I seem to over-think.


With all of the Tweeting, Flickring, Blogging, Wiki-ing, Posting, Tagging and Bookmarking I am now Tumblr-ing. All right so one more thing to sign up for right? Yes, right… but I guess the point here is that my new Web 2.0 accounts less about signing up for more thing and more to the point that I become aware and familiar with all replicable tools at my disposal to create replicable practices.

It is up to me and only me to decide, experiment, tweak, modify and THINK what works best and how create a REPLICABLE PRACTICE out of it.
