Tumblr, Making Blogging Easy


Tumblr is a free, simplified blogging service that facilitates the creation of Tumblelogs, which are essentially streamlined versions of standard blogs.

Tumblr is great if you want to setup a quick and easy link blog or photo blog. You can even have Tumblr import RSS feeds that automatically post to your blog, as well as mapping your own domain to a Tumblr blog if you want.

Launched in February, Tumblr is one of the services created by the New York based company Davidville.

Gina Trapani has a great write-up on Tumblr over on Lifehacker.

In writing about Tumblr, Jason Schupp says “What’s old is new again”. One thing is for sure, Tumblr part a whole new wave of services that are helping people get back to the basics of blogging.
