Cool Tools Episode 26 Podcast: Tumblr

Tumblr is a form of tumblelog which has come to mean a blog that is populated with many pictures, URL’s, videos etc. and contains very little in the way of long text narrative as one might normally associate with a blog. Tumblr allows you to easily incorporate everything you want to share on one page. On Tumblr you can share text, photos, quotes, links, music and videos from your browser phone, desktop and email. Tumblr allows you to totally customize the way your page works and when your finished they give you a distinct URL to give to people who would like to follow your blog.

I really enjoyed this podcast, Ciaran. I really liked how you clearly pointed out how Tumblr could be used by librarians, in support of artistic patrons and different patron groups. Very interesting.

Another tool that I did not know about...thank you, Ciaran. As an alternative to a traditional blog, it looks very interesting and I will check it out.
