Tumblr vs Blogging

July 20, 2011

Last Updated:

I use the tumblr off and on again, and I still love the idea of it and the UI, and the reblog feature, and a million *several other little things. What I liked most about my tumblr was that it was like a giant mashup of a way to share what I was liking in my RSS feed, random pics throughout the week, quotes, funny things, links etc etc etc. However, it’s tough to keep up this blog sometimes with work and life and fun… and summer, let alone maintaining yet another bloggy/social outlet like tumblr. So I’m going to give that a try here this week instead. *My other little problem with tumblr is the lack of attribution of photos, design, and content in general. I’m all for sharing, but giving credit where credit is due makes the creative world go round. Onward.

This week…

-The long-awaited Spotify is here. So far I don’t see how it’s better than Grooveshark — especially since you have to download it (vs Pandora & Grooveshark). Any insight on what the big deal is? Please share.

-I’m loving the latest “A Dress & A Gig Poster” by The Shallow End

-Obsessed. much: The Cults – Go Outside [soundcloud url=”″]

-I attended a wedding last weekend where the bride & groom got married in their backyard, and each guest had a tea cup with their name attached. Super cute.

-Here’s a tattoo I might not get tired of: a world map across my back via A Cup of Jo

-Aaaand {are you still there mom?} since I will probably always change my mind about having something inked on my skin, I love the new project by swiss-miss and friends — designy temporary tattoos are too cute.

-“Is life not a thousand times too short for us to bore ourselves?” –Friedrich Nietzsche

What fabulous things have you been perusing this week?
