While blogging is no art form, it has evolved into something that can be a bit formal, requiring a title or sometimes both a title and a description. Sometimes, you don’t want to make everything feel like an article. You just want a little corner of the web over which your consciousness can stream.
That’s where “tumblelogs” come into play, like Tumblr. The icon-based interface makes posting text, photos, audio files, and videos a breeze. And unlike traditional blogs, Tumblr features community elements like the ability to follow other Tumblrs (similar to friending on a social network) and receive their updates from your dashboard or via RSS feed.
Tumblr is a free platform, providing audio and video hosting at no additional cost. Users are given a unique name.tumblr.com url upon signup and access to advanced features like custom themes, custom CSS, and custom domains (i.e. you can have a Tumblr log on your own domain). If you’re just looking to hang the answer out there, or just express yourself, this is a great option.
