I’ve seen a bit of motion around tumblelogs (or lifelogs) recently and I signed up at Tumblr to see what the commotion was about. Basically, a tumblelog is a personal aggregator with a blog style display.
I’m normally an “I want to run my own” kind of guy, but I rather like having an external service for this. I’ve pointed alexking.info to my tumblelog on Tumblr (alexkingorg.tumblr.com). If I decide I really like it, I’ll probably design a custom template for it at some point.
Mine pulls from:
- my blog (you’re reading it now)
- my golf blog
- my Twitter “microblog”
- my Flickr photos
- my del.icio.us bookmarks
- my YouTube videos
- King Design’s news section (I’m not sure if this should be there or not…)
and creates a single chronological timeline of all the content.
I’m not sure how useful this is, but it’s certainly fun and egotastic.
