The other day I noticed a bit of a gap in my daily process of information. I have Pinboard for capturing links, InstaPaper for saving longer articles for reading later, but there are a bunch of odd-and-ends that don’t get captured. Most of these tend to be photos and although I could bookmark them, links change and those images could get lost, so I was looking at different ways that I could capture these images.
FFFFound.com looked like the ticket, but you have to be invited to participate and even then it looked like a bit of a pile. Then I figured that Tumblr might just be the ticket. I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about the service and how easy it is, so I figured I’d give it a whirl.
Suffice to say that I wasn’t all that impressed. Granted, I’m a bit old school and tend to post everything in HTML anyway, most of the bells and whistles of posting photos, etc. where kind of meh. I loved the way the blog looked, but being unable to post because of a service outage was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Besides, what I discovered was that posting to Tumblr was no different than posting to my blog — so why not just do that?!?
So, I swept up some of the dust and cobwebs, switched the theme to Modernist 2.0 and plan to move the two posts I did on Tumblr over to mashby.com
In other words…
