Tumblr: an easy and fun way to microblog
Tumblr is a microblogging platform. It's designed in such a way that you can post a snippet, a quote, a photo, a link, or a video, without feeling that you have to expound further. Just post, and go.
Another big plus is that it has loads of themes to choose from, some with a minimal fee, a lot are free. And connecting it to Facebook and Twitter is a breeze. Just approve the necessary authorization and you're good to go. No advertisements. Your content is yours. And it's free!
You can also acquire your custom domain name and use it instead of your tumblr url.
Tumblr was launched in 2007. I discovered it 4 years late. I could have used this platform for one of my blogs. I've been playing with it for a couple of weeks now and I love it!
