Tumblr is a kind of cross between blogging, bookmarking and scrap-booking. We like this. For some reason it works, even though it doesn’t sound like much of a tech advance. The interface is clean, the components sensible, it’s got great features and it’s cool. It helps also that Chad Fowler’s name is associated with this somehow. We like Chad.
What’s a tumblelog? To make a simple analogy: If blogs are journals, tumblelogs are scrapbooks. You can also look at tumblelogs as slightly more structured blogs that make it easier, faster, and more fun to post and share stuff you find or create.
