Recently I’ve become an active user of the social media platform Tumblr. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, here’s a short introduction:
“Tumblr is a microblogging platform and social networking website, owned and operated by Tumblr, Inc. Emphasizing its ease of use, the service allows users to post content to a short-form blog, named a ‘tumblelog’. Users can follow other users’ blogs, as well as make their blogs private. Much of the website’s features are accessed from the ‘dashboard’ interface, where the option to post content and posts of followed blogs appear.” — Wikipedia
I’ve had my account for a while now but I never really got into it. As I was searching for inspirational images to accompany my opinion posts, a whole new world opened up to me. Tumblr might be one of the simplest blogging platforms out there, but it’s definitely worth mentioning. There’s just so much creativity there (in any field; art, photography, fashion, beauty, quotes..) that is sure to get anyone’s inspiration juices flowing. It’s a big online muse community.
I even might consider checking out Pinterest too (again, I have an account, but there’s barely activity there), but then again I wonder how anyone’s still having an actual life when you have so many social media to update every day? :’)
