So. Apparently I now have a tumblr account.

Now could someone please tell me what the heck to DO with it?

I swear I can't figure out what the hell Tumblr is for, and it makes me feel old and crotchety, because apparently all the kiddies love the Tumblr. Also, the one time I went to sign up (for some forgotten reason), it demanded that I feed it not just my e-mail address and a password, but also a URL. WTF? What URL am I supposed to feed it...? Ugh.

I think it might make a domain for you? IDEK.

I'm always late to the party, and it makes me feel old until I realise that I was also like this in high school. Example: I didn't start watching Welcome Back, Kotter until at least a couple of seasons after it aired (and yes, I do realise how much that last sentence dates me).

Pretty up to date of you! Anyway, when you'll figure it out, you'll let us know?

Dude. I never do anything up-to-date. This is an aberration. ;)

Me neither;) This is why I'm not half thankful to you to let me know Tumblr even existed!

A lot of people "reblog" things that appear on other Tumblrs, especially photos and videos. I guess it's a sincere form of flattery, like imitation. :)

Their site says you can pretty much do anything with it. That's too much freedom, isn't it? :) I've poked around Tumblr for a long time but haven't gotten up the nerve to set up my own account, yet.

NPR has a Tumblr. So does the New York Times. (I'm guessing their Tumblr isn't behind a paywall....)

Actually I meant the New Yorker, though the Times has just started Tumblr-ing too.

I've got one too. But I don't know what to do with it either:). Hilarious!

Yes, and you are the only one I'm following right now. Which means we are SO the blind leading the blind.

Until they figure out how to do the equivalent of and LJ-cut, they're USELESS.

Even at that stage, I'm not sure they'll have any greater relevance than "fuckyeahX" blogs.

I just got back from a con where people were all about their tumblrs, but nobody really explained why (of course, I didn't ask, either).
