A new blog perhaps?

The gist of this long post is that I am testing out a new place to host my blog –

The rest of this post is a discussion of why and hopefully will get others on the bandwagon to join Tumblr and try it out!!

So for anyone who has checked it out, I tweet way more often than I blog here at WordPress. ¬†Sometimes I just feel like I don’t have enough time to blog and I think that is because blogging suggests thinking about a post, sitting down, writing it out, editing it for errors/length, etc. . . That is a lot of work when you are busy.

Twitter provides a quick place to update but you are limited to 140 words a post which suggests the other extreme:

post: “I’m at the coffee shop”

post 2:”now I’m leaving the coffee shop”

post 3: considering taking a poop . . .

You get my drift.

I have found what might be the perfect in-between – Tumblr

Tumblr is fairly new and has been neglected thus far due to the popularity of Twitter and Facebook. Tumblr also provides updates to my Twitter if I would like but I have the option of whether or not to post to both. I like the idea of being able to update friends and family without forcing my updates on other readers who may have no interest (ala Facebook news feeds/Twitter).

The best part, the posts are clearly intended to be smaller than typical blog posts however I can write as much as I want and I am able to upload movies, pics, even audio files without any hassel.

So I’m going to give it a fair shake and see what Tumblr is all about. ¬†Catch me at my newest place on the net:
