Tumblr – even more instant blogging March 22, 2007

Posted by Al in : website , trackback

Blogging is definitely de-rigueur for any web addict these days, and even for some folks who have never really used a computer or the Internet before. It’s not exactly hard to get blogging with services like Blogger and WordPress offering hosted blogs, and then WordPress or Movable Type for blogs on your own host. However while setting up the blog is easy, as is posting to it, it’s the little touches that customise your posts and make the blog look good that are hard to get right. I looked at my blog through a friend’s profile in work yesterday and discovered that I might have an issue with my CSS because in his profile (which is weird because he is partially sighted) the body text was showing as a heading font.

So for all you folks out there who want an occasional blog that is easy to set up and offers you 6 different post types which are automatically detected, or manually chosen, then head on over to Tumblr and sign up. You can be blogging in 5 minutes, can post quickly via a bookmarklet and can even post from your mobile or PDA. I now have a Tumblr blog, and it should also copy everything I post in this blog from now on. You can read more about Tumble and Tumblelogs here.
