Tuesday: Tumblr

11 Sep

So I have succumb! I have made my own Tumblr page. As you are well aware, I love all things preppy. Thus, I decided to devote a Tumblr blog to my favorite preppy items. So far the posts contain pictures of my preppy outfits, but I hope to branch out to other subjects. I am not concerned about promoting it and getting lots of reblogs. Really, this is a page for me to document and to collect my favorite preppy items. Whether you are a fellow prep or just a fanatic Tumblr, I hope you will check it out.

 

Check out my Tumblr “Prep in the City.”

Stay tuned for next week’s post when I’ll be reviewing some iPhone apps devoted to photography and to making your Tumblr standout.

Quick post for you all. I found this Tumblr through a fellow DePauw grad. A good mix of images, but I was particularly drawn to it because of the quotes. Bonus: clever name! Hope you enjoy it!

Check out “Sharing from Afar” for quality quotes and a few other surprises.

How does the media use social media? Check out The Columbus Dispatch and their Tumblr page. I was very impressed with the artistic photos. It really draws you into the story and gets you curious about the details. From what I’ve seen so far, I’ve been very impressed with how The Columbus Dispatch uses social media to capture the attention of readers.

What’s your local paper doing to catch your attention? How are they using social media?

Good evening everyone! I wanted to find some new Tumblr blogs to follow, so I took to Google and found “The Top 25 Tumblr.com Blogs.” While the article is from 2010, I did enjoy many of the blogs on the list. Over the coming weeks I’ll be reviewing and sharing the blogs on the “Tuesday: Tumblr” post.

As I looked over the list, the Tumblr blog “Clients From Hell” immediately caught my attention. My family owns a small business, and my parents are always coming home with stories about customers. Now that I am dealing with clients on a day-to-day basis, I understand their frustrations. However, the stories in this Tumblr blog are unlike any I’ve heard. These hellish clients make me feel very fortunate for all of the clients I’ve dealt with thus far.

I like the humor of the blog. It’s a relatable topic to a wide variety of people. Thus, the blog does a good job of uniting people. Additionally, the blog offers people the chance to interact, share, and win prizes. There is lots of potential for engagement. However, I do wish the blog had more pictures, like the one featured below. To me, such pictures define Tumblr blogs and tend to catch people’s attention much more than just text. Still, I enjoyed the blog, and¬†ultimately, I decided to follow it. I am looking forward to reading more, and I hope I never have such stories to share.

“Clients From Hell” shares real stories about the pains of dealing with clients on a day-to-day basis.

What do you think of the blog? What client stories would you share?

Today’s post combines Tumblr and Instagram. Many people use Instagram to enhance their photos before posting them to Tumblr. Both photo-based social media sites are great for bloggers and marketers. I am slowly but surely falling in love with Instagram (to follow me search “lucylfirst”). It makes my life so much easier. I take lots of pictures for clients and can turn them into professional looking ones in no time. Instagram takes my Facebook and Twitter content to a new level.

Since Tumblr and Instagram are becoming increasing necessities in our social lives, I thought I would share these articles from Mashable.com.
