Social Media and me, er ... us!

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

A couple of weeks ago, Leann suggested that we might want to try out Tumblr.  My reaction was, "Yeah, great. Let's do it.  ... Uh, what is it?"

According to Wikipedia, "Tumblr is a microblogging platform and social networking website. The service allows users to post multimedia and other content to a short-form blog. 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."

Leann's mentioned her son-in-law's twice-monthly podcast, Welcome to Night Vale. She told me how Tumblr helped find them an audience. 

Well, I figured ... why not try it!

So, not only are Leann and I up there, but so are the Chicks and Ellery, too.

Great.  Wonderful.  Now what do we do?

Well, we're posting.  Why do we want to use Tumblr?  A lot of people don't like Facebook.  Tumblr is another way we can communicate with our readers.  The problem is ... how do we find our readers on Tumblr?

Well, I guess that's what my post today is all about.  Why not come over and take a look at our mini blogs and see what you think.  I'll give you the links again ... just click on our names and take a look.  Maybe you'd like to join in the fun.  We'll be happy to follow you, too!
