Is anyone using Tumblr?

    I've been reading that Tumblr is the special of the week. It's supposed to be a site that has a lot of mini blogging power. I might try it out this week, but was wondering what any longer term users have to say about the site.

      I use it and it really is an easy site to get people to share your stuff.  All you have to do is use good tags and definitely add a picture to your post.

      People will "reblog" your stuff and that means extra links back to your site.

      You'll get a lot of traffic from that site if you can get your "cool" posts circulating... just make sure to add your link in the text below the picture, make the picture a clickable link and add your link as the source as well.

    I used it for a bit. But you have to go into the code and insert your own Adsense/Affiliate codes. And although it has a lot of internal interaction (people "reblog" posts/pictures they like) I don't see a whole lot of Tumblr blogs coming up in search.

    I personally prefer Blogger, but Tumblr would be good if you want lots of other people reblogging information/photos which then leads back to your own websites. So backlinks, basically.

    Tumblr is a micro-blogging platform geared more towards the younger generation. As a teen myself, I'd imagine it really isn't going to be useful when it comes to HP. It's more so for you to just reblog photos and content that you really like, and for some reason 65% of this content is Pokemon, Dr. Who, Glee, and Adventure Time (which I can't complain with, haha).

    The other 35% is composed of "f***yeah________" (insert something to obsess over) blogs, technology, geekery, and owls, hahaha.

    Thanks, all, but don't get The Magician banned for being too youthful! I might try it by pretending to be 18...now where's my latest slang dictionary....

    Tumblr can go viral and drive a lot of traffic.  But I agree, it doesn't seem to rank as well as Hubpages.  If it goes viral, the traffic is internal and can continue for a long time. 

    Images seem to get reblogged a lot.  I will warn you, that Tumblr is pretty much wide open for content.  There is a shocking amount of adult oriented stuff there.

    Thanks, all! There are so many sites, these days and it gets to be far too much. I would like to find another couple to tend to and that's about it. I'll try Tumblr.
