What do Flickr, tumblr and cemeteries have in common?

You’d be surprised. I know I was.

Today’s Tech – Oct 10th

Tumblr bloggers using the iOS app recently received an update that makes some changes to how photos are included in posts. Tap the All Photos option at the top of the selector panel to narrow your selection to a specific album. Nice. The update notice also hinted this update would be leading to even bigger changes […]

Does your blog need some bling?

Looking to spiff up your blog? Want to take advantage of the latest features your blog platform offers? Maybe it’s time for a new theme. Here are some options to help your search.

Tumblr App Adds Style

Actually, they call it “Appearance”. It’s a new feature on the Tumblr mobile app that lets you customize how your Tumblr blog will look within the app. Most blogs have clean, uncluttered designs when viewed on small devices.

The best way I can describe Tumblr is Twitter on steroids. Tumblr is designed for short updates – but without Twitter’s character […]

Tumblr updates iOS and Android apps

I’m finding Tumblr more fascinating every day. Think of it as a sort of long-form Twitter only you’re following blogs (and hashtag conversations) and reblogging posts.
