Microblogging is a broadcast medium in the form of blogging. A microblog differs from a traditional blog in that its content is typically smaller in both actual and aggregate file size. Microblogs “allow users to exchange small elements of content such as short sentences, individual images, or video links” (Wikipedia)
A tumblelog is a quick and dirty stream of consciousness, a bit like a remaindered links style linklog but with more than just links. They remind me of an older style of blogging, back when people did sites by hand… with minimal commentary, little cross-blog chatter, the barest whiff of a finished published work, almost pure editing…really just a way to quickly publish the “stuff” that you run across every day on the web (Wikipedia)
So a tumbleblog is a microblog in some ways similar to Facebook with stuff shared and a brief or limited commentary!
The best known Tumblog based site today is Tumblr but the concept can be applied anywhere including here in WordPress.
And that, m’friend, is what I will be supplementing this blog with.
Going forward, between my usual tutorials and the link, you will occasionally also see shorter snippets and shares of things that I have found interesting on the web…
Hope you enjoy!
