“I always discover new knowledge by following others’ blogs and links” 2013

“micro blogging tool where i jot down quick ideas that i’ll use later for blog posts or that i need to come back to”  Debora Gallo

“The best microblogging site for me. I use it for new bloggers who are not sure if they even want to enter the blogosphere because it is so non-threatening. I tell them it is like bookmarking on steroids. Personally, I find myself using Tumblr a lot more to store videos (primarily) for presentations so I don’t have to maneuver through YouTube ,Vimeo, Google Video, etc. I simply go to my Tumblr site and there they are, nice and neat and ready to show. Using it as a way to funnel RSS feeds into one mega-feed is also a nice option but the limit on the number of feeds has thwarted me a time or two. Free”  Audrey J Williams
