I am playing with a new “Tumblelog” run by the folks at tumblr, which I am running under phoneboy.info, as opposed to phoneboy.com, where I also run a blog. While blogging on Vox is pretty easy, blogging on Tumblr is almost easier. Why? Because there isn’t much expectation there. The blog posts are designed to be short, sweet, and dirt-simple to do. It’s also fast, mostly because all of the bloat is gone.
I still wonder what the monetization strategy for this company is, but it’s not like I am posting my life story there, so I’m not too worried about the long-term viability.
