In school, I was one of those kids who cut classes to hide in bathrooms and smoke cigarettes. I’ve always had a hard time sticking to schedules and following rules. I grow bored. And when I do, I ramble.
It’s why I haven’t blogged or posted many updates on Facebook—I burned out. So I’ve been spending more time on Twitter and exploring other social media sites.
In my wandering, I discovered Tumblr. And I think many of you would enjoy it, too. Click here to read an interview on why I love to tumble. It won’t explain why I’m prone to disappear.
But I’m happy to report—I no longer smoke in bathrooms.
LOL. Loved your last sentence. It made me chuckle.
Thanks, Carolyn. Tumblr is like a mini-blog. It would be a great place for you to share your passion for camping and vintage campers. I would love to read a blog like that, especially if it’s by you.
I tumble too! Though usually only as a direct feed from my WordPress activities. But I’m getting growing subscription numbers to my main blogs from there. Good to hear that you were a bad girl – and sometimes still are.
Hey, Roz, I come from a long line of bad. 🙂 I’d love to find you on Tumblr. My plan is to keep the people I follow to a manageable number. That way I can keep up and not miss posts the way I do on Twitter. And I love the visuals on Tumblr and the control over the look of my page. It’s fun and creative. But I still have lots to learn.
I like your interview, Darrelyn. I sort of get Tumblr, kind of like a cross between my Pinterest and my blog, but it seems to have a learning curve for me that I’m not ready for. I enjoyed visiting your site!
I agree, Richard. You are way too busy with a forthcoming memoir. It takes a bit of time to figure things out. I have a strong feeling things won’t be slowing down for you any time soon. In fact, I hope you have a book event next year in NOLA. I’ll be there if you do.
from your fellow rule-breaker.
Thanks, Dave. Your poems would look gorgeous on Tumblr. And I’d love to see Jenni’s photos over there, too.
See, I broke one rule in 8th grade, got ratted out, and never broke another one. I missed all the fun. Your photos are wonderful! And thanks for sharing my blog post : ) I enjoyed reading your interview. The simplicity of Tumblr is particularly appealing. I signed up, and one of these days when I have a few hours, I’m going to get started.
I thought about you when I first explored Tumblr, Cynthia. And I was thrilled to come home from a few days at the beach to find your first post over there. I really think you’re going to enjoy tumbling. It’s not as time-consuming as other social media sites. People can like or reblog your posts, and your inbox doesn’t explode.
