No… I didn’t misspell it. Tumblr is a free service that lets you create blog like sites. The FAQs describe it as a scrap book. It lets you mark websites, videos, pictures etc to share with the rest of the world.

I stumbled on Tumblr through an article on LifeHacker the other day. The official Tumblr blog is on WordPress. I set up an account (painless) and started my TumbleLog. I’ll admit I haven’t play around with all of the options and different media types that can be posted. But posting a site is easy. I just click on the little “Share on Tumblr” bookmarklet and hit OK in the pop-up window. It gives you the option of editing the title and everything.

They’ve also got a couple different themes you can use and are planning on using more. You can also change the colors in the themes and even create a custom theme using the base CSS they provide.

So here’s my TumbleLog… Enjoy. I hope to be adding to it in the near future.
