trying something new

20May07

hello, friends. you may see this page / feed change to THIS in the near future. it’s called a tumblog and i really like the way it works. it’s a short format blog thingy that has special formatting for different things like text, links, im snippets, pictures and videos. my use of twitter has taught me that i’m much more likely to post often with simple tools that don’t, by their design, demand that i put alot of thought or effort into the post. i write about 20 twitters or more for every 1 blog post i do. i take as many pictures, if not more, than i twitter. and two things i don’t really do with you because it’s such a pain on wordpress is share links or videos. these are all things tumblr is really good at.

tumblr is also really good at importing things like my tweets or my long blog posts from here and inserting them into a timeline along with all my micro-posts. i LOVE that.

but it’s bad at a few things too. first off. it’s bad at preserving an easily accessible history of things. second, it doesn’t have comments *at all.* which means it’s not good for discussion. and finally. it doesn’t appear to have any sidebar type thing where i can link to all your blogs.

so i’m confused as to what i should make the landing page for you. i’ll be honest and tell you that ummm, no one clicks on your links over to the right there. i’m sorry, i’m just not that popular and people here don’t care. so i don’t think that’s a big problem. and if i continue to post long discussion-worthy posts on this blog but just have tumbler show the posts, you’ll be able to click through to comment. which is an ok solution, i guess. but i’m just not sure. what do you think? would you rather have two separate pages for me or would you rather see the tumblog and click through to here for the long posts with comments?

    I say change is good, and you should take the plunge! I say this selfishly, as I would rather have you test this idea first, so that I might profit from your frustration 😉

  2. Just wish to say your article is as surprising.

    The clearness for your submit is simply excellent and i could suppose you are an expert in this subject.
    Well together with your permission allow me to
    grab your feed to keep updated with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please continue the rewarding work.

  3. Hello it’s me, I am also visiting this website daily, this web site is truly pleasant and the users are really sharing good thoughts.

  4. Congratulations: Badhai, Mubarakbad (बधाई, मुबारकबाद).

    With a confluence of varied religious and traits the time to come together
    and enjoy is plenty. The Hindi festival, Holi, a springtime festival of colors in India inspired the Run or Dye event.
