Tumblr’ing Toward Ecstasy

Don’t get me wrong, I love WordPress. You can do a ton with it—this blog proves that! In spite of the versatility of WordPress, Tumblr remains my social media platform of choice for sharing my obsessions.

Hiking, haiku, gaming or what have you—Tumblr’s easy-to-use-and-customize online publishing tools let you share your interests with the wider world. We’ve got a few nice books on Tumblr that can help you get started, but keep in mind, the site changes all of the time, and new features crop up regularly!

  1. I do Love tumblr, and it can be addictive, scrolling and scrolling down your dashboard i have spent many hours doing that myself and tumblr has a kind of sub genre for everyone, Fandom, Studying, Books.., anything you want you can probably find a tumblr for it. although i have to admit it can be difficult to use on slower internet conections due to the vast ammounts of images and gifs . it will also eat up a lot of y our mobile data if you have the app on your phone haha!

  2. I love Tumblr. As a 21 year old distance learner with lots of time at home, one may even say that I am slightly addicted to Tumblr.

  3. That’s funny because I signed up for Tumblr back in college (maybe around ’09-’10), and I didn’t understand the point of it. Maybe because it was still new and there weren’t as many people/brands/organizations on there as there are now, but I couldn’t get into it. It wasn’t until late last year/early this year that I finally logged back on and fiddled around with it a bit more. Tumblr and WordPress served very different functions; it just depends on what you’re looking to do.
