Semi-Permanent Tumblr Hiatus?
When I originally signed up for Tumblr, I did so mostly to have a centralized location that would enable me to
- Easily push out posts to other social networks (particularly Twitter and Facebook), and
- Create a record of those posts.
Unfortunately, Tumblr kind of sucks when it comes to (1), and being a proprietary service I remain extremely skeptical of its ability to fulfill (2). Moreover, I’ve begun to use HootSuite more regularly on my phone, which actually does allow me to cross-post to Twitter and Facebook without, well, doing a piss-poor job of it.
So I’m putting Tumblr on semi-permanent hiatus. I may come back to it, particularly if HootSuite’s Android app ever adds support or if the service gets some kind of major upgrade that actually makes cross-posting look decent. I’ll probably pop in ever now and then just to test the latter.
