Why am I moving? Steve Rubel, PR braniac for Edelman, says it: Tumblr is where the people are. It’s got a fast-growing community of bloggers, and it has tools that make it easy to follow other blogs, as well as write blog posts yourself, sharing images, links, video, quotes, conversational snippets, and text posts like this one. Plus Tumblr integrates with Facebook and Twitter (though the Facebook integration could be nicer. I need to look at that).
Unlike Steve, I’m not nuking my old blogs. I’m just not updating them. I’ve left a trail of blogs behind me as I’ve switched from one platform to another since 2006. Blogs of mine that are older than 2006 have, alas, gone away, though I still think you can fund them in archive.org.
Are you on Tumblr? Let me know your blog ID and I’ll follow you there.
