Trying to establish yourself as an artist? Writer? Musician? Designer? Consultant? Any other profession that I can’t seem to think of just now? Then you should have a Tumblr.
“What is Tumblr?” you ask?
Tumblr is a blogging platform that allows users to post text, images, video, links, quotes, and audio to their tumblelog, a short-form blog. The service emphasizes customizability and ease of use.
Why You Should Tumblr:
1. It’s lazy proof. A post can be as simple as a link, a picture, a quote… no pressure to create a long, thought out blog post.
2. It allows you to crowd-source the best of the web and in doing so, define your own taste.
3. Browsing other tumblrs can lead to inspiration.
Some of my favorites:
"Oh noes... another Lady Gaga cover" (I have some bias for this one... it's my mom's... that's right my mom.)
"Every Bell That Tolls Me" Things that strike me, particularly: vintage design, retro illustration, type, and handmades
Stop reading and go set up your own Tumblr. Share your new Tumblr link as a comment or share some of your other favorite Tumblrs.
