Tumblr Blog Ideas and Tumblr Blog Title Ideas
I discovered Tumblr some
time ago but I never took the time to give my opinion on this platform. It is not a bad little service, as social
media goes. Tumblr is a mix between a kind of WordPress blogging platform, like
Twitter with microblogging and social networks like Facebook, but functions as
a separate service.
Tumblr is a platform that
has grown extremely quickly. Established since 2007, it already has more than
34 million blogs and over 12 billion posts. You may use Tumblr for various
This is the new rising
star of social networking and you can be one of the first to jump on the band
wagon before the wagons wheels buckle.
It is easy and quick to take charge of, in that within five minutes you
can create your blog, choose a design (from over 2000) and start blogging. You can even change its name and design
whenever you want.
It is easy to plan, and
the worst thing for a blog is not being updated regularly. You may not necessarily have the time to blog
every day, but on Tumblr, you can easily put your posts into a queue and let
them release at regular intervals.
It has an ease of
interaction with other social networks.
It is very easy to link with your Twitter to Tumblr and Facebook to Tumblr.
The Tumblr community is very active (mainly in the U.S.A) and you can easily
follow the blogs of others and Reblog photos, ideas, thoughts, videos and more.
You can make your
contributions short if you wish. Sometimes you want to share but without wanting
to write a 5 page post. With Tumblr, you post absolutely whatever you want.
There is no need for long text, and no obligation to make it short (like with Twitter),
and there are really very few limitations.
In summary, this platform
is not perfect and will not suit everyone, but it is very flexible in design
and use. This is a platform for social micro-blogging which supports all media
formats, so that you can even post via email.
With that said, you may
wish to have a go at Tumblr but don’t know what to write. So here are a few ideas to get you started:
Pictures of ducks in
funny positions and situations with a little comment underneath.
A collection of images of
art that genuinely scares you.
logic in a topsy-turvy world
A collection of images,
texts, signs and videos that seem wrong or unusual, such as videos of stuff
rolling up hills on one of those optical illusion roads. Of a psychic’s sign on a door that says, “if
you are there, knock twice”. Or a
picture of a set of steps, leading up to the disabled toilet.
ten blackhead squeezes
A collection of videos
showing black head spots being squeezed.
inspirational quotes from other sites that you feel are good. Like Confucius saying, “it matters not how
slow you go, so long as you don’t stop”.
