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.
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!
