You Don’t HAVE to Be Drinking to Start a Tumblr Blog, But it Helps

They say that when you fall off a bicycle the best thing you can do is get back on, so last night I poured me a glass of Evan Williams and got right back to pedaling.

While I was doing so, I decided to take the nothing I had parked at daveexmachina.tumblr.com and turn it into something. So now I have two tumblrs (the other being Lego Diem, which just celebrated its third birthday!)

There are a few good reasons to do this.

1) Tumblr is ideal for quick-and-dirty postings, especially images and comics and such. There’s no need to whip up a “real” blog post for a link to something even more ephemeral than the usual nonsense here.

Like this:

2) The best way to follow Tumblr blogs is through Tumblr itself, and as long as I’m in there anyway, reblogging the stuff I like to my own is quick and easy.

3) And with #2, this gets a lot of things off of my RSS reader and helps trim it down.

So there you go. Tumblr. daveexmachina.tumblr.com

I assure you that you won’t be missing out on much of anything if you don’t follow it.

If you have a Tumblr of your own or have one to recommend, please let me know in the comments!
