Tumblrarian 101: Tumblr for Libraries and Librarians

  • Tumblr is a microblogging platform where bloggers post text, links, quotes, audio clips, videos, and images to a community of followers and outside readers. These posts can be commented on, “liked,” or “reblogged” by other Tumblr users. In terms of blog size and scope, think of Tumblr as falling somewhere between Twitter and traditional blogs like Blogspot or WordPress. Tumblr users create their own blog in order to follow and be followed by other bloggers. Then, similar to Twitter, posts made by other users you follow will show up on a constantly updated “dashboard.”
