Why You Should Tumblr

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.)




"Iconoclassic" Beauty, style, modernism, la dolce vita. And don't forget the cannoli.



"Every Bell That Tolls Me" Things that strike me, particularly: vintage design, retro illustration, type, and handmades



"Baubau Haus"
