My Other (Other) blog...

Ok. So you already know about my other blog, right ? is where I post those things that just don't really go on a "real" blog, whatever that means. You know, web surveys (What kind of fish are you? What is your super-power? How many three year olds could you take in a fight?) That sort of thing...

It is also the site where I test concepts, toss around blog design ideas, and don't worry about how it looks, how it feels, or who looks at it. Nothing that goes there is really important. If you 're not already reading it, you're not missing anything.


Now I have another blog...

I know, I know.. I don't post often enough on this one to warrant one more, but hear me out.

A couple of weeks ago, Mark Lee introduced me to the concept of a Tumblelog.

The W defines a tumblelog like this :
A tumblelog (or tlog) is a variation of a blog that favors short-form, mixed-media posts over the longer editorial posts frequently associated with blogging. Common post formats found on tumblelogs include links, photos, quotes, dialogues, and video. Unlike blogs, tumblelogs are frequently used to share the author's creations, discoveries, or experiences while providing little or no commentary.
See full article here - Tumbleblog on the W

There are a variety of sites (like for setting up tumbl blogs.

Mark Lee's tumbl blog (which again, is the first one that I ever saw ) is located here -


Now, I really like this idea for a couple of reasons.
  1. I love blogging. I like reading them, writing them, commenting on them, and getting comments on mine.
  2. I don't have the time to write great blog posts, and I'm obsessive about them when I do write them. This particular post, which was meant to be a quick ad for my tumblr site, has been in process for 30 minutes...
  3. Numbers 1 and 2 on this list are in HUGE conflict with one another.
So... without further ado, let me point you over to my very own tumbl blog.

This is where I (s)tumbl(e)...

If you do the whole RSS reader (or Google reader) thing, then you can simply add the RSS link to your reader, and you'll know when I post to it.

They will likely be short, random, and possibly silly.

Looking forward to the journey,

That's an interesting idea. My problem is that links and stuff end up sitting around in my "pile" to get blogged about and sometimes never see the light of day for many of the reasons you mentioned.

Does it aggregate Tweets?
